Christmas Parade

Adam and I took Kenly to the Hendersonville Christmas Parade on Main Street on Saturday. We love the parade. We always pack hot chocolate and show up to cheer and wait for Santa. I still have to resist the urge to shove small children while diving for the candy, coloring books and stuffed Chick-fil-A cows that fall from heaven during the parade. Kenly had good time. She was oblivious to most of what was going on around her. We enjoyed all the sights and sounds--little league champs, Girl Scouts, and Cub Scouts, dance troops, fire trucks, little girls wearing tiaras, and Shriners on motorcycles. Who doesn't love a parade? Kenly only jumped twice. A firetruck startled her, and East High's drumline kept her from finishing a bottle by "breaking it down" right in front of us. Here are a few pictures that I think you'll enjoy...

Here is Kenly enjoying her version of hot chocolate...the koozie kept her bottle nice and warm. This is before the drums made her think the bottle was poison. She liked checking out the Shriners on motorcycles.
She loves hanging out with her Dada...she was all smiles in his lap.
Adam and I kept warm by having hot chocolate. Believe it or not, the left over hot chocolate was still hot at 9:00PM that night. We were at the parade at 10:30AM...that thermos is amazing.

Christmas parades and Santa hats go hand and hand. Leanne sent Kenly this little coat...I love it! It kept Kenly so warm. Thanks Aunt Leanne.
