Grafton Christmas Parade

Now that Turkey Day is over, it is time to get ready for our favorite holiday of the year, Christmas. We decided that the best way to get in the spirit was to take in a local Christmas parade. We weren't too keen on sitting outside in the 20 degree weather, but when Mom mentioned that there would be candy and we could bring hot chocolate, we were in! We lasted a whole hour and rushed to pick up every piece of candy we could find. Lily even dodged a few parade cars and marching bands to get every last piece. I think we succeeded...Mom mentioned her bag was a few pounds heavier upon leaving the parade. We didn't make it long enough to see Santa, but by the time we left we couldn't feel our fingers or toes so we were ready to head home. Despite the cold weather we loved every minute of the parade, and now it is time to eat some candy here in our world!
