Christmas Parade

Last night, we watched the Hinesville Christmas Parade. It was a cold and soggy night, but we all had fun. Megan was at her best friends for a bday sleepover, so she missed it with us. We did, however, have a couple of extra kids with us. Our friends boys, Mason and Harrison, came with us to see the parade. It is neat to see a night parade. Growing up in Warner Robins, the christmas parade was in the morning, so the first time we saw a night parade was when we lived here the first time. Such a cool idea to use christmas lights on the floats! Yep, thats me and my honey waiting for the parade to start. The santa hats served as good rain hats! LOL
And here's my 2 big girls. They are getting so big! We had to hear them acting all cool and teenager-ly during the parade. I am getting so old!
Here are the boys very impatiently waiting for the parade. Austin, Mason, Jonathan, and Harrison.
I LOVE THIS ONE OF AUSTIN! Such a cute smile on his face! He really enjoyed the parade. He waved at everyone! I know his arm must have been tired. My last baby is growing up so fast...

Hinesville Christmas Celebration

Last week, Hinesville had its Downtown Christmas Celebration. They closed down the downtown area and had activities and crafts for the kids, food and snacks, and vendors from area churches and organizations. The kids had a ball. They made santa hats, decorated cookies, had popcorn, hot chocolate, hotdogs, saw santa AND his reindeer, and it was just a great night! Here are real live, GA reindeer. They came from a reindeer farm in north GA. It was so cool to see them...but i always thoght reindeer were bigger than that! LOL
Here's Megan and Austin sitting in Sants's sleigh with the reindeer ready for take-off!
Megan always ready to pose for the camera! She is so goofy!
