Hi! I don't know why but I am really in the holiday spirit this year. Maybe because it is the first Christmas in our new home and I just love all the parades and tree lightings and Santa sightings in our small towns. 

This week, I took my kids to drawing club at Queen Bee Coffee in McDonough with Steph Calvert. We had a great time stretching our creative muscles and Steph is excellent with the kids. It is a no pressure type of class. The next one will be on the last Tuesday in January and I encourage you to check it out. On small business Saturday, I went to the Tanger Outlets in Locust Grove. Did you know there are several locally-owned small business there? Lena Jane, Express Your Selfie, Chic & Shabby, and Cake n Shake to name a few. Next time you are there, make sure to stop in and check them out.

There are so many fun holiday events coming up! We are heading to the parade in Jackson on Friday, to the Neighborhood Lot and the McDonough Square to see the Grinch and Santa and to Nash Farm Park for the tree lighting on Saturday, and to the Mistletoe Market on Sunday where I am hoping to find teacher gifts!

Here are This Week's Top Picks for Fun! 

Our Holiday Guide has all the information on parades, tree lightings, holiday lights, Santa, gift ideas, and more but here are a few highlights for this weekend.

My goal is to be your go-to source for the answer to "What are we going to do/eat/play/eat/see" around McDonough, Stockbridge, Locust Grove, Hampton, Griffin and Jackson. I am always looking for events to share.  Check out our event calendar regularly for more ideas to find your family fun! If you have an event to share, please submit it to our calendar. And you can support your Macaroni Kid by sharing us with your friends.
