Getting The Christmas Spirit

It was an absolutely gorgeous weekend in this part of Missouri.  I went to historic Saint Charles, the first capital of Missouri.  The Christmas decorations were going up and it really made me feel like Christmas time was here (despite the warm weather).  Next weekend the real festivities begin with parades, carolers, and Santas in costumes from different countries.  Here are some of the beautiful homes and stores on Main Street.

Cute log cabin

I love decorated store windows.

That bear is a Christmas tree topper.  It made me smile.

Fun store.

That's the end of the tour.  Hope you had fun and are feeling all



  1. Loved the tour. I've been to St. Charles once, but it was long ago. I love historic communities like that, especially when they are all decorated for Christmas.


  2. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! What a beautiful area. I need to get to St. Charles and check it out.
    Have a great week.

  3. What a fun little town! I want to go there..not too terribly far from us in Oklahoma City. :)

  4. Hey, I was surprised to see my home town! But I recognized the downtown instantly, before reading the name.
