he came to town


the last saturday in November
was our city's annual Santa Claus parade.
it is such a fun tradition.
some of the shops and banks down town give out hot chocolate.
(some hot chocolate is better than others- but now we know where to go for the good stuff!)
candy is handed out-
lots and lots of candy canes, of course.
it isn't that great as far as parades go-
lots of cars and trucks with signs,
but hey,
it is cold here in the north!
Santa is always on the very last float,
of course!
it was a fun time.
(and Ben had a friend come along.)
and the kids just moaned when I made them stop by a window and take a picture with me.
but they humored me,
and I love them for it!

That's such a cute picture. I hope in a few years my kids will still let me wrangle them into some pictures.

That sounds like soooo much fun. Wish I could have been there sipping hot chocolate too.

Still waiting to hear about Super Saturday :)
