Rockwall's "Old-Fashioned Christmas in the Square" sounded idyllic: "sleigh" rides, boutiques open for shopping, pictures with Santa, hot chocolate and treats. Unfortunately, winter decided to arrive tonight. (For the non-locals, winter in Texas means cold temps and rain). We braved the downpour anyway and headed to the old courthouse.

She still refused to sit on Santa's lap, but stood next to him without a fuss. I think she might have tried it if the kid in front of us hadn't been crying. Maddie seemed to be a fan.
