Grandma J's granddaughter, along with her dance team, marched in the local Christmas parade last Saturday. The parade was starting at 5ish in the evening. It was a cold and blustery day...like in the low 30s....but hey, that's what it's supposed to be like in the middle of December. Cold weather sets the mood....Santa will be all bundled up and the reindeer won't be breaking a sweat.
Grandma J and company set up camp towards the end of the parade so they can meet up with her granddaughter for a fast escape afterwards. Now, it wasn't like we were at the very end....just a couple of blocks from the end. Don't you just love the front row seats? Oh, and yes, it never gets any crowder...um, crowdier. Oh heck I don't know the right word, except this is pretty much as crowded as it gets.
Grandma J's daughter and JJ are really into this whole parade, but for different reasons. Daughter can't wait for her little girl to pass by, and JJ....well, he likes horses and of course wants to see Santa and his reindeer....mostly the reindeer.
JJ gets focused...and starts doing his little anxiety shiver.......
Yeah, like this is what JJ was expecting? This was the only Santa we saw in the parade!
By the time Grandma J's granddaughter came, it was pitch dark out...with no lighting what so ever. So, here is a picture of her granddaughter in the car after the parade.
Yes, she's in her pajamas.....and yes, can you believe a dance team wore their pajamas to march in the parade?
