a snowy parade

Having heard mid-week about our local community holding their first annual Christmas parade, our church quickly put together a float idea. My husband volunteered his truck, a trailer, and bales of hay for the singers to sit on for the short parade route. A few women made several phone calls to cover the planned theme and it all came together late this afternoon when we all gathered outside in weather with temperatures in the teens. It started snowing like crazy shortly before the parade started....perfect for a Christmas parade! The kids enjoyed snuggling together as they sang songs that they had learned for the week before for the church Christmas program.

My little angel almost panicked when she heard she had to put her angel costume on for the parade thinking it would mean taking her snowsuit and snow gear off to do so. Brrrrr!
She was delighted to be an angel with plenty of bulky warmth underneath as she held her candlestick light :-)

It was a fun event and we'll see if it was deemed successful enough by the chamber of commerce to have the second annual Christmas parade next year!

What a fun idea for Christmas! Our church always enters a VBS-themed float into the 4th of July parade, but I have never heard of a Christmas parade around here. That would be so much fun for the kids!
