Looks like it may be brisk but the weather is suppose to clear just in time for tonight's 60th annual holiday tree lighting! Join in the spirit of the season at 5pm to listen to the Army Band play in the Pantages lobby followed by the tree lighting at 6pm. I'll be parking at the T-dome and hopping the Link over to the event. This will be the first time I've been to the Tacoma tree lighting so I'm definitely excited. See you there!

We really enjoyed getting out tonight to celebrate the holidays. The Pantages lobby made for a great assembly, mingling, and entertainment area. Kids had an especially good time considering Santa was on-hand for some lap sitting and wish receiving. The Tacky Shirt singers sang some carols followed by a brass ensemble from Ft. Lewis. Reminded me of when I played in brass ensemble in high school -- this time of year was always the most fun for that kind of music.
After the entertainment everyone went outside where the weather was dry and down right balmy compared to the last few days. With a countdown from ten the tree was lit. Thanks to Sarah and Reena for coming out with me and Happy Holidays to all!
