The First Annual Christmas Parade Watching Party

ChristmasRemember last year how I said that our local horse-drawn Christmas parade comes down our street?  Remember how I said that we were going to have a party to watch it this year?

Well Saturday, we did just that!  You can't necessarily see it in these pictures, but it was a drizzly, rainy day--so the porch was the perfect place to watch from.

A few other houses on our block were having little shindigs along with us.  Amidst the calls of "Merry Christmas!", several of the riders joked that we should share our hot chocolate and goodies with them.  Maybe next year, eh?

Because this is definitely going to become a tradition!
