About a week ago we heard about the Tucson light parade in town and decided to go check it out. We packed up some hot chocolate and found a spot.
It was a little cold but the parade was awesome! Easton couldn't get enough of all of the trucks pulling the floats and especially liked the race cars that raced down the street. he got really excited over Mater!
The girls loved all the lights and there were some princess floats that they loved too. It was a lot of fun and it ended with an awesome Firetruck that has a driver in the front and back. Chad has always wanted one of these and I'll admit it was pretty cool.
I have lived here 11 years and had no clue this awesome parade happens every year!
On Christmas Eve we went over to Grandma and Grandpa Miller's house and had our traditional dinner on our fancy china. We played a game and heard "Santa's" bells outside and then looked to find surprises on the front porch.
Chad and I got an awesome large enamel teapot for camping! Santa knows us so well! Chad put together an awesome nativity video for us to watch. He did a great job.
We let the kids open their jammies from Grandma and Grandpa Clayton.
They were excited to wear them for Christmas morning and quickly went to bed. They were excited to wake up to new sleeping bags and hiking backpacks from Santa!
They loved passing out the presents and digging in.
After we met my family for fishing. The kids had to bring their favorite toys with them.
Lydia and Chad were hanging out with their pole in the water when.....she caught the only fish of the day! A rainbow trout.
Uncle Craig helped her release the fish back into the water.
Brianna brought her kayak and gave the girls rides around the lake. They loved it.
