Christmas Parade

The Saturday after Thanksgiving we spent the morning at a birthday party for one of Stella's classmates and then traveled to New Roads with the cousins for a Christmas parade.  This will be sweet Claire's first Christmas and she was ready to enjoy all the sights and sounds of the season... 

I love this picture of my girls.  Every once in a while they stop fussing long enough to be sweet to one another...

I also love this series of pictures of Cille with Mawmaw.  As a grandma's girl myself, I love how these pictures capture the special relationship that they share...


In a small town, it helps to have friends in high places.  In spite of the fact that we were pretty late as usual, when Lacie rolled down her window and flashed her credentials they literally moved the barricade so we could get to our primo parking spots and waltz up to the perfect viewing spot a couple of minutes before the parade rolled...
Another one of Mawmaw's girls...

Watts has reached the time of life in which he is no longer always a willing participant in family photos...



The kids were like throw magnets.  They got more beads and stuffed animals than you could shake a stick at...


Claire was a little skeptical...







Watts is so happy to have Claire.  The twins and Tripp all had the audacity to be born a year before him, but now that Claire's here he has someone his own size to play with...
He loves her...

The girls and their loot...
This sweet man stood beside us during the parade and helped the girls get the best throws.  Apparently, he knows everyone who rides in the parade and was able to talk them all into throwing their goodies our way.  Hopefully we can find him again next year!
The mommies and the babies post parade...
Let's try that again...
This little girl is a ham!

Love her!
