We decided on Oglebay Park in Wheeling, West Virginia, only 75 miles from home and a perfect holiday getaway with beautiful light displays and festivity through the entire park. To our delight, it snowed the night we stayed just the right amount to make for winter wonderland scenery yet safe road travel!
Chris treated me by driving throughout the park and stopping where I could take pictures. The stable animals were beautiful and so friendly. They reminded me of the Christmas carol, "The Friendly Beasts" which describe the animals surrounding Jesus the day he was born.
"Jesus our brother, kind and good was humbly born in a stable rude,
The friendly beasts around him stood, Jesus our brother kind and good."
Today is Small Business Saturday and I would like to recognize Mom's Memories scrapbooking store in Wheeling where I purchased the papers and note card on Tuesday as we left Wheeling. Local scrapbook stores are few and far between near my West Virginia home. The owner and associates are the best. Thanks to them for supporting the local economy and a creative outlet!
