A morning spent working with students at Osceola Middle School resulted in an unexpected surprise. A book lovers’ Christmas tree.
Mini books used as decorations.
Dozens of ornaments with favorite book characters: The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Tigger, Madeline, Paddington, and Peter Rabbit.
Clifford and one of the Wild Things.
Even a couple of nursery rhyme characters: the Three Men in a Tub and Humpty Dumpty.
Love the hat used as a tree topper!
And more characters, like Arthur and Curious George, as well as book themed gift bags surrounding the tree.What a trip down memory lane for all of the book lovers who pass through the media center. Thanks, Karen, for sharing this holiday treasure.
The final day of school in 2013 deserved a celebration. What better way to begin the holiday than immersed in over a million Christmas lights decorating Mount Dora?
First, dinner at Lost Parrot, located in the middle of Mount Dora, the outdoor patio seemed like the perfect place for a relaxing meal to kick off the holiday break. Not a bad place for dinner, but overpriced and nothing special. Not a place we’ll visit again.
However, the trip was worthwhile. Great lights.
And window decorations.
Mount Dora offers a number of Christmas events for anyone looking for a special way to celebrate including the Christmas Cannonball Express Train, Christmas Boat Tours and Guided Food Tours. It may be worth another trip to Mount Dora.
