Parade, Party, and Saturday Fun!

This was a fun day. We went to a Christmas parade in our little town. We bundled up the kids and stuck them in our wagon. I asked Squeaky what her favorite part of the parade was. She said it was the people who gave her candy (there were a lot!) and her second favorite thing was the trucks. My favorite thing was the Tim Horton's truck. They had large containers of hot chocolate in the back of the semi truck and were handing out free hot chocolates and cookies to everyone watching the parade. :)
Button got a little cold and bored waiting for the parade to start, so she was being "Baby Moses" in the wagon.
Little Winnie fell asleep- precious little girl.
Our church had a float in the parade. Squeaky was invited to be on it but we decided that would be too much for her.
Some friends of ours stumbled upon us, so we watched together.

Button's little friend invited her to his birthday party today! He is turning 2 this week. She kept singing Happy Birthday all day long. Here's the birthday boy:
They ate yummy chocolate cake, juice and other snacks. It was so cute to see all these little kidlets together. The party was held in their childcare room; the room where Squeaky and Button go while we are in classes during the week. It is such a great place for kids. It has tons of toys, books, games, puzzles, crafts and even a little kitchenette to serve the goodies from. I don't think I've posted any pictures of the childcare room yet.
One of the most fun things for the kids was the opportunity to play in the sandbox. Usually we keep them out of the sandbox because of the amount of kids in childcare and the mess it makes. So it was extra special for them to be able to do that.

This evening we started decorating for Christmas a little bit. The girls had fun sticking the snowflakes on the window. Button is saying, "cheese" in her picture.

It looks like you had a very fun day. Is the birthday boy the oldest in his family? I'm glad Button is better and can be around her friends. The "Holiday" Parade in Lincoln was postponed to another day because of a glaze of ice which came down Fri. night and Sat. morning. I would go to our parade if Tim Horton had a van with treats like that. I am planning on going to Edge 64 to a Christmas Sing-a-long this afternoon. Love, Mom

Looks like you are all having some real fun and getting into thewinter "thing". We feel so much apart of your activities since we have been there.

Button looked so cute in that picture with the other kids and she has her hair sticking up like a little fountain.

Love those snow flakes on the windows girls.

Uncle Helmut had to do quite a bit of the snow removal job in the last several days - he does our own walk and drive and the ones across the street - that man had a heart attack last spring so his wife hires Helmut for snow removal for the whole winter. I think that we got about three inches of snow over the last several days.

Love, A. Jean

hey Val, I love the stick-on snowflakes! Where did you get them?

Heather- I've had those for a long time, and I can't remember where I got them. Sometimes you can find "window-cling" stickers at dollar stores around Christmas time.
