He came in the form of the Santa Claus parade, along with a bunch of marching bands and some fun advertisements…I mean floats. King kept asking me all day if the real Santa was going to be there, or if it would be one of those guys dressed up just pretending. I told him, I didn’t know and we’d have to wait and find out together. Those questions sometimes baffle me, I’m not sure how to answer – so I let him decide for him self and I play along. In the end he came to the conclusion that Santa was too busy making toys to be in the parade and he asked a friend to help – much better then my made up answer would have been. This was the best parade year for us, to date – it was super warm out, and the kids were just so excited about every little thing.

My personal favorite is always the bag pipes. Oh the bag pipes, I don’t know what it is but those things make me tear up pretty much every time I hear them – I usually have to hide my face so people don’t see me almost crying for literally no reason at all. The boys loved the marching bands, King was dancing to a drum beat for the rest of the day and Harlow loved the floats. The parade is always the beginning of Christmas excitement for us, we left smiling and went home to cuddle up and watch Elf (the first of many for the season). The perfect end to a weekend and the beginning of Christmas cheer!

Oh, am I relieved to hear that I am not the only person who cries at the sound of bagpipes! Also, any version of Amazng Grace or Taps.
