Last Saturday was our city's annual Christmas parade. The kids really started enjoying it last year and were so excited about going again. We met up with Larry and his boys since Ms. Sarah had to work that morning. Grandma and Papa came too. Daddy had to work the parade so we sat really close to the intersection he was working the traffic at.
Riley, Jack, and Ralston enjoyed their HUGE pixie sticks that were given to them by a local church that we were sitting next to. They were also giving out hot chocolate and coffee :-) Perfect for the super cold weather we were having that morning.
We got there about an hour before so we could get our seats. She was so serious about everything while she was waiting. No food, no drink, just waiting for the parade...didn't want to miss a thing!
Here are the funny cars that come every year! The kids loved them. They are from one of the local charity organizations.
Here's a nice float! The Warner Robins Police Department!! We could have ridden on it with the kids, but I thought Hailey and Jack would have enjoyed the parade from this point of view better... and they did!! The Chief and his family are on it along with some other families. Maybe in a couple of years when the kids aren't as excited to watch the parade we'll start riding in it to wave at everybody.
And a quick shout-out to my high school band. I played the flute in it for three years and am still proud of them!! My director has been there since the school opened (mid -90's) and he was in the parade... I hollered at him...don't know if he recognized me :-)
Then the calvary came to clear the way for Holiday Traffic to get back in action :-) It was a great day...well except till the Gators beat the Tide, but we're over that now. Hope you all are enjoying all of the fun events of season!!
I just opened my mail and didn't get a Christmas card, nope...I got my first ever Jury Summons! Yea! Maybe I'll get out of it due to Darren's job :-)
Oh and one more thing...pray for Jack. He's been a little crabby and had some cold symptoms the past two days but tonight while I was putting him to bed he felt warm. I took his temp and it was 104!! I gave him the Tylenol and put the washcloth on his head...then after an hour I gave him some Motrin since it was so high. I kept him up with me and pretty soon it started breaking. By 10:30 he had a normal temp and I put him back to bed. I hope this isn't the flu....he's had a flu shot but you never know. Maybe it's just strep or a scary virus with a high fever. I just know I don't want it to ever get that high again!!
