Christmas Decorations and Parade of Lights
This has been a weekend filled with Christmas fun. We decorated our tree, went to the parade of lights, Christmas gift shopping and this morning was our first annual North Pole Breakfast (I will do another post about this later). All in all its been a very fun filled weekend. To start with here are some of our decorations.

Friday was the Parade of Lights and it was so much fun. Its very much a small town parade but the floats are so pretty. This has to be one of my favorite events of the year and by far the girls' favorite parade. My favorite float was the dancing Snowmen but the girls agreed the float filled with Angels was the best. I wish had gotten closer to the tree as the crowd quickly becomes a mob towards the end when Santa comes down on his sleigh Sadly, we were too far away to get any great pictures of the tree lighting but the moment was still magical. You could feel the magic of Christmas vibrating in the air as Santa waved to the crowd before flipping the switch. I will have to post a picture later once I get it from Hubbins, but Ladybug was brave and took a picture with the Grinch after the parade. Lil Giraffe hide in the stroller with her hands over her eyes so alas she did not get a picture. I hoping we have better luck later this week when we go to see Santa.
