Ellie is finally on the mend, and I am so grateful because we have such a busy weekend planned. Last night was Eric's Christmas Party, and Mrs. Beth watched the kids so that we could go. She took them to the Smiths Grove Christmas Parade and then to church to play while the youth served hot chocolate and the ladies decorated. They basically thought that it was the best night ever. Ha!
Today is always our most festive day the of the year. We started at the Bowling Green Christmas Parade, went to Christmas in Kentucky at WKU, ate a yummy lunch, and then went to Cookies with Santa. I'll document each of these separately, so let's start with the parade.
When Eli was younger and I worked in TV, he always got to be in the parade with me. I was bummed that Ellie would miss the opportunity, but luckily, my work also enters a float every year. In fact, we have won the past TWO YEARS!!
The kids were thrilled to ride this year. The theme was "Traditional Christmas," so we had a tree, gramps and granny reading to the kids, and of course Santa hats. Several co-workers came with their kids, and we just had the best time celebrating!
