Christmas parades and marshmellows..

Holiday festivities make us smile.

And so does...
Horses galloping.

cuddling up to stay warm..

ginormous parade floats/balloons..

post parade food devouring

ok, we attend Tanglewood's Festival of Lights every, single, year.
Yes, its the same 2.2 million lights every single year.
Yes, its the same long line of cars waiting hours to get through.
But it's a Christmas Tradition...

My sister and her hubs joined us for a fun filled evening of dinner and lights..

baby, its cold outside.
And my coat makes me look like I'm stashing 4 kids inside it. hmmph. not cool.

now all we needed was snow.

but marshmellows, hot chocolate and apple cider will do..

my family roasted marshmellows...

and for the first time ever in my life...I roasted marshmellows...

I'm not a good "marshmellow roaster"...(these babies have not a hint of golden color)

but Mike is a marshmellow burner.....yowza!

how Christmas-y and fun..

May the spirit of Christmas bring you peace,

                                                  The gladness of Christmas give you hope,

                                                  The warmth of Christmas grant you love.
