Christmas Season Begins Here

Last weekend we took in the Santa Parade. Wanting to get a good spot and park on the parade route we started with brunch at the Hilton. It was yummy and the girls found lots that they enjoyed.

The organizers of this year's parade did a great job! We enjoyed organic hot chocolate (in cups that are biodegradable) and cookies while waiting for the parade. CJ had her letter ready to hand over to the Canada Post Letter carriers.

Then we waited for the big guy at the end. I think CD was waiting for more horses or dogs.

After the parade CJ got to go into the mall and pick up a prize for winning the Santa Claus Parade Coloring Contest!! I'll have to try to get it back or at least a picture of it! She did a great job, it was covered with glitter ~ I wonder if she's been reading Saucy's blog?

Ho Ho Ho ! Pictures with Santa ended the morning. I love seeing the wonder and magic in the eyes of my daughters!! This Christmas is going to be so much fun now that CD is a little older. I'm sure that Christmas morning will be hours of playing with empty boxes and gift wrap.

As you know, glitter makes everything better! Whoo-hoo about the colouring contest! That is so cool.

Loopy rarely would be photographed with Santa. I only have one or two pics of her with the man in the red suit. You are lucky! The girls look adorable.
