I Love a Parade!

While it wasn't as great as last year's parade - I mean, who can beat Darla in a Mrs. Claus outfit?, it was still plenty of fun for boys and parents alike.

The boys donned their hockey gear and roller blades to glide through our community's annual lighted Christmas Parade.

Players and mascot from our nearby semi-semi-not-quite-professional hockey team walked with them, and the kids were in 7th heaven!

Both boys made it the entire parade route without needing to ride in the rescue truck, and even more impressive, so did their mom! We were all about the hot cocoa in the car, and hurried home to bed so we could wake up and hit the ice again on Saturday morning!

What a great night!

I'm still thinking on that movie line. I've heard Starbucks has incredible hot white chocolate raspberry (or something like that...maybe it was peppermint)....

It's a Will Farrell movie. Don't hold that against us, as an elf, a news guy, a pro-basketball player or stock car driver the guy is funny.
