Byron's "Big Peach" Holiday Event
Had a fabulous time today up at the Byron Welcome Center/Art Gallery ~ lots of fun things going on! Breakfast with Santa, petting zoo & car show in the parking lot, Authors at the gallery signing their books, Barb & Sue face painting, artist Allan Carey painting at the gallery, Artist and TV Personality Mark Ballard showed us how to make a Festive Holiday Wreath and the Holiday Mart was rocking with lots of shoppers! Events going on til 7p.m. so there is still time to get out and do some shopping!




Regina & Mark

Michael Rady ~ signing his book ~ it's available at the Welcome Center/Gallery ~ if you still want a copy of his book.

Some more action outside! Mary & Shirley painting ornaments and snowmen!

Mark showing us how to take a plain evergreen wreath from drab to FAB!

Some of Mark's holiday Merchandise ~ you can see more of his amazing items on his website at
He has a Facebook page as well under Mark Ballard ~ "LIKE" it today!

Aprons, cards & cookbooks are still available in limited supply at the Byron Welcome Center/Art Gallery - stop in and see Frances!

Mark & Frances ~ Frances ended up purchasing the wreath ~ to go on her RED door for the holidays! She organized the entire event and is such an amazing lady and asset to the city of Byron!!

Now to back up a bit ~ had a wonderful time with my mom & dad here and then my younger sister and her kiddos rolled into town. Was awesome to give my sister some clothes that I no longer wore and even more awesome how great she looked in them! Never would have thought I'd be giving my sister a size 10 pair of pants!! She is still working out and looking great after losing over 150 lbs. all through diet and exercise.

Ready to curl up on the couch with my hubby and watch a movie!
Have a great day!
