Santa Parade 2012

This year for the Santa parade, we invited Peanut’s girlfriend, JudiB. We didn’t tell the boys because if something happened and she couldn’t make it, then Peanut would have been heartbroken. Finally, as we were driving to the location we told them, and they were both overjoyed.

JudiB is a girl that we met during the meet-the-teacher night at their school. We all went out to give the playground a once over and let the boys expend some energy. I think that she was the first person that Peanut spoke with, and by “spoke with” I mean it went something like “HiMynameisPeanutandIlovetrains.” Her response was “me too!” It’s been true love ever since.

The three kiddos had a good time, and we really enjoyed getting to know Jud’s mom better.

Of course, Papa and Nana were there to get in on the action.

Gotta love it when Santa and the Mrs. show up on the fire engine. Preceding them is the local high school marching band and some local businesses who throw out candy for the kids. It lasts about 15 minutes, tops, but how do you put a price or time requirement on these happy faces?
