Who Knew??

That Santa wore sunglasses and rode on a firetruck?? Tell me, really...did you?!

Yesterday was the annual Christmas Parade in my little town and for the first time, we got to be a part of it! Ethan's CubScout Pack (#269) made a float and got to ride in the Parade. The kids were so excited. They had bags and bags of candy that they were to pass out to the spectators along the parade route (down Main Street, of course! ;)) and they were giddy! (Couldn't possibly have been from the candy high THEY were on or anything!) It was such a beautiful day - sunny and crisp, but not overly cold - and it went off without a hitch. The boys even won First Prize for a civic float! Talk about proud!

I was amazed at how "big" the parade was given the size of our town, but they really went all out. We had the Shelby County Marching band (who totally rocked), an awesome colorguard, fire trucks and police cars galore, along with antique cars, floats and horse and riders. Such fun and so colorful! There were so many neat pics to share that I put them all in a slide show to watch - have fun. It's almost like you were there! :D
