Tree Lighting Ceremony at the Oklahoma State Capitol

Easton is in the first grade at Briarwood and they were invited to attend the Tree Lighting Ceremony at the State Capitol last night. Easton was so excited about getting to go; he kept saying he was going to "meet the government." The kids brought ornaments they had made to decorate two 3' Christmas trees. Then they made Christmas cards for the troops overseas. We went as a family and it was definitely something to remember. The Governor and his wife along with Santa Claus walked around to each school and took pictures. It was pretty exciting. Well, leave it to Olivia to find the limelight. She made it into the Daily Oklahoman this morning! I think it's in the local section but I'm going to post the pic and the caption that was with it! I have other pics that I took, I'll post them soon!
