Here we are waiting in the cold for the Christmas parade downtown. Back home in Florida, the Christmas parade was always a fun, family event. Ironically, their parade was tonight as well. A part of me was sad that we weren’t going to be with my family celebrating together. We ended up joining Whitney, Tracie, Crystal & their families to the parade here though, and everyone loved it. We froze our tushies off and then went out for dinner afterward. I may not be in Florida with my family, but fun times like these with my military family come pretty close.
