Downtown Holiday Parade

A few weeks ago our town held it's annual holiday parade. Unlike the Memorial Day parade, this one consisted of people throwing candy and it didn't take long for Ben to catch one.

Besides the candy, this parade was extra special since my sister, niece, and brother and in law were in it! Ben thought it was so cool that he knew someone in the parade.


My sister and her family.

I can't believe Christmas is 2 days away! The anticipation is killing me!

A Visit With Santa

Santa hasn't always been Ben's favorite person, but this year's pictures with Santa are precious. 

And since I'm nostalgic...

2011. The only way I could get him close to Santa was to have him sit on this stool. At least he wasn't crying.

2010. I think every parent needs at least one crying Santa picture.

2009. First Christmas, still fascinated, and not old enough to be scared.
