Santa made time to visit Castle Farms to read a story book to some children!  Whatta guy!!

What can you say about a cold, wet, snowy day in February; where hundreds of people come together for a memorial snowball tournament?  You can say, “I’m from Cedar!”  The third year of this tournament was a great success!  People had fun, froze some tushie, and made some money to help a few local folks in need.  Good game!

I had the exciting privilege of covering the indoor kids racing for my friend’s son.  I was really surprised to find it absolutely enjoyable.  Among the 70+ kids ranging in ages of 5-14, there were no issues and no tears between kids or parents.  All of the parents worked together to help fix cars and make sure everybody had what they needed to race.  And to see these little people – – yes! as young as 5 years old! racing! was the coolest thing EVER!  At an intermission, all of the racers lined up for autograph time.  It was super cute to see these little people signing autographs like a huge stars.  And I think the funniest part of the day was that the littlest ones can hardly write their name but can navigate a track like pros!

The other cool thing about the day was watching the kids make friends!  Do you remember how you could just strike up a friendship with no questions or cares when you were a kid?  It’s so much harder as an adult!  I watched 2 kids who had never met, yet raced against each other on the track, pal up like they’d know each other their entire lives.

Oh, and this is likely the coolest place I have ever seen my business name!  On the hood, too!  Rumor has it, I get to have the hood to hang in my garage!

Santa came to Castle Farms to read the Polar Express to children!  It was a fun day, filled with laughter, happy smiles, and long lists of gifts to bring on Christmas.

The ever-so-fabulous and talented Stephen West made an appearance at the Wool and Honey knit shop in Cedar on Tuesday night. Knitters from far and wide came to have their books signed and see his fantastic designs in person.  It was quite an event!
