Helena Christmas Parade

On Saturday, we went to the Helena Christmas parade. It was fun.. but FREEZING! We were all bundled up with our hot chocolate, and our toes were still numb. Our sweet friends, Colleen and Eric came over to our house and we drove to the back of our neighborhood where we have a trail to the elementary school and we walked down to the school. WOW! I really didn't realize how close my neighborhood is to the school and if I had me a golf cart.. I sure could walk/drive to school every day! ha! Now, wouldn't that be funny.. Santa.. did you hear that?? =)

But, we had a fun time.. didn't stay for the whole parade cause it was sooo long and cold. After an hour that was about all we could take but it was fun to see many of my former students dancing/walking/riding on the floats. Sad we didn't stay to see Santa at the end, but we did see Bo Bice! Of course, he helped make Helena famous.. ha! But, it put me in the christmas spirit and it was actually kind of nice that it was cold and not hot this year. I always love the Helena parade and look forward to it every year. Happy Holidays everyone!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas..

I can't believe Thanksgiving has come and gone.. and yes, I didn't take any pictures. Sad! Jamie and I hosted thanksgiving dinner at our house for the first time and we had lots of yummy food. I think the reason I didn't take any pics was beause it looked more like the first Christmas than Thanksgiving. I couldn't help it but I was all decorated for Christmas before Thanksgivng. ha! It is my favorite time of the year and I wanted our new house to be all decorate so everyone could see it! We had a fun time with the family and we have lots to be thankful for! I think about that each day.. we are so blessed!
So, I'll leave you with some pics of our house all decorated for Christmas and I love it! I am ready for it to be here.. ready to see my niece and nephews, ready for a break from work and ready to spend time with the fam! I can't believe it is almost here! I am almost done with my shopping and I am so excited! This is the first year that I have been done so early! I've wrapped a lot of the presents too.. these pics were taken before I wrapped..Can't wait to just enjoy them under the tree! Don't you just love this time of the year.. I sure do! Hope you all have a blessed holiday season!
