My occasionally snarky thoughts on everything from motherhood, politics, life and current events. Cocktails are sometimes mandatory. Bottoms up!

My hometown.... gonna be featured on the Early Show (CBS) tomorrow!! According to the local paper at 7:40am Central/Mtn time, Country Christmas in Powell, Wyoming will be showcased! (ymmv )

Okay, by "showcased" I mean they have done a piece on the "Country Christmas" celebration Powell, Wyo puts together every year. The whole Country Christmas thing is pretty cute -- Tons of twinkle lights decorate downtown, Santa usually flies in by helicopter and takes up residence to hear the whispered wishes of the tots that come by,** and they have a parade and everything! It's a big ball of fun!

And when you live in (or come from) podunk Wyoming, making it on TV (without a murder charge) is a big deal!

**I used to date one of the guys that "played Santa" when they started this whole Country Christmas thing. In real life he looked a lot like (this) Kris Kringle. Really. (Well, without all of the plastic and stuff...)
