Friday the 21st Playgroup canceled!

I didn't realize that when I made the schedule a month ago for playgroup my brother would be here on the day I am in charge. So, I have canceled playgroup rather then finding someone to do it for me...since I was supposed to do the craft after all! Sorry! We will start playgroup again after the new year in 2008! I hope you all enjoy the holidays.

Visitors to Folepi's Winter Wonderland in 2007 might just think they've been transported to a different galaxy! New this year in the almost 2-mile drive-through electric park is a free outdoor laser light show simulating a cosmic adventure. The new display will incorporate laser lights and computerized laser images with the festival's space-themed parade floats, and be located toward the end of the drive-through. Lighted arches stretching across the driving path provide the impression that visitors are traveling through a black hole and ending up in a space port!
