last weekend, we decided to try and make it to our local town's Christmas parade. my brother's band was marching in another one that was about 10 minutes away, but it was at 10 am and smack dab in the middle of davis's morning nap (and it was still pretty chilly at that hour.) so we decided to wait instead for this afternoon parade. we found a parking spot and walked a couple of blocks over to the parade route. davis was all set for the event....
and we ran into my dear friend lisa and her son matthew! her husband and oldest son ethan were in the parade with his cub scout troop.
lisa has two boys and has been awesome at giving us hand-me-downs for clothes and toys. the hat davis was wearing kept sliding around on his head as he sat in the the stroller, and lisa offered us this hat that she had just tried on matthew (and was too small for him.) it was just perfect and soooo adorable!
i thought the poinsettia garlands on this horse were beautiful.
but this was my favorite. a 4-h group came along with horses and carriages, including the full nativity walking behind them. they had a minature pony that a very pregnant mary rode side-saddle while joseph was leading the way. cutest thing in the whole parade :)
christmas parade with the family? check!
