Christmas Parade of Lights

Even though I have been in the mood for weeks...
Christmas for me officially starts with the Christmas Parade of Lights.  

 It is a family tradition to meet with our cousins and make an evening out of it.
 We usually have to bundle the kids up... 
but this year we had a lovely evening in the high 50s.
 We visit the downtown shops and visit with a few friends.
And lots of cookies and treats along the way....
 But it is the lovely floats and music I enjoy.
 The best one every year is done by local churches.
 So beautiful.... my pictures do not do it justice.
 Everything and anything is decorated for the parade.
 Even farm equipment and lawn mowers!
But it is so much fun for the kids... of all ages.
I know a bunch of towns do this for the holidays...
But does your have a giant watermelon every year?
Lol, this is actually the town we moved from Vincennes, Indiana.
And they are known as the Watermelon Capital.
They even drop this big thing for NEW YEARS from a crane.

We all three look forward to the parade every year. 
These are my two sweets and my cute as a button niece. 
Only a little spoiled.... 
but we will keep them.

Happy Holidays and God Bless!
