Winter Nights and Lights

Well this year we took the Girl to our local winter parade.  It was fun!  The weather wasn't terrible, barely any wind which was a nice change from the norm.  We got there about a half hour before the parade started.  Got our usual spot.  I brought the cocoa and some treats for the girl.  The parade started.  It was wonderful! I could tell Lillian really got a kick out of all the floats and the people in costumes.  We didn't get much candy but that's ok cause she really doesn't eat a whole lot of candy, just the occasional m&ms.  We kept warm and she got to try out her snowsuit that I picked up at a garage sale for $1.  Yup you read that right, a perfectly fine snow suit for $1.  It fits her well and she stayed plenty warm.  Warmer than me who forgot to put on an extra pair of socks and pants under my jeans and snow boots.  I guess I was just more focused on making sure the girl didn't freeze that I forgot about myself.  Thankfully we all survived.  A nice tradition.   We had wanted to take her last year but it was just a little too cold out there for a 6 month old then.

The rest of the weekend we really just did a whole lot of nothing.  I got a few more pages of my scrapbook done.  I'm on like lily's 6th month now.  Though I'm missing halloween pictures and fall pictures.  I'm sure I have them somewhere, only God knows where though.  So I will have to order some more.   Adam played X box all weekend.  A very laid back weekend, we don't seem to get them often enough these days.
