Christmas Parade

We had our town Christmas parade a couple of weeks ago. It was such a pretty day that day. Not too cold but cool enough for a sweater. Lots of people turned out! Every year Stevie and his kids walk in the parade and pass out flags. The last few years my little boy has done it with them. He always has so much fun.

Our friend Mr. Benny all dressed up in his American Flag costume passing them out. He is such a character.

Stevie giving them to some children on the back of a truck.

Getting another handful.

A picture of the car behind us all decorated. I didn't get to see too much of the parade because I rode on the back of the golf cart. I was taking these pictures as we were moving. Does the golf cart look familiar? We used it at our wedding a few months ago. :) See that church in the background? Isn't it beautiful?

Garrett trying to fill up both hands. Mr. Benny hooked this cart up to the back of the golf cart to carry the tubs of flags. That way they could just walk up and fill up as we went. It was a long parade.

Garrett was so tired and thirsty at the end! He loved it though. Isn't that the cutest pink truck behind him? Wish Santa would bring me one. :) Mr. Benny and Hailey are back there too on the right.

I took the easy way out and rode the back of the golf cart. lol.....Then I had to hurry and get home and get dressed for a long day at work. It was a lot of fun.

Tonight is another parade and I'll miss it because I have to work. I know Stevie, Hailey and Garrett will be there passing out flags again. Hope he gets some pictures.

Merry Christmas!

I started helping Benny pass out flags over 20 years ago. Tyler started helping, then Hailey, then Garrett. Tyler has gotten too cool to pass them out(ha). I guess Hailey and Garrett will get too cool one day too. We usually eat pancakes before the parade. I am glad you got a chance to help this year and look forward to many more years. Hopefully, I will be able to walk the parade route with our grandbabys passing out flags once they get big enough. I hate that you will not get to come to the Summit parade tonight. I will be sure to take some pictures.

Darling girl, I am so thrilled to see that you and Stevie got married! Congratulations to you both. Can you email me your phone number? I really would love to chat with you. I have missed you so much.

We are going to put up our tree tonight...hopefully. I am fixing to head over to my doctors office to get an x-ray of my ankle. Wish me luck!

Sounds like fun. I haven't been to a parade in years, I should really try to get to one. The waiting is what drives me crazy! I wish you and your family Happy Holidays and hope you are more prepared than I am. I still have shopping to do!
