Christmas Parade x Dos

What a fun weekend we had! Saturday morning, Addison got to walk in a local parade with her drama class. She had such a good time & was quite adorable!

Drew had such a good time waiting for sister to come down the parade. He waved at the bands & fought other little kids for candy. Just kidding - no fights. They all shared quite nicely!

The APS truck was blowing "snow"! 

Baxter from the Diamondbacks was there! Drew loved getting to see him!

After the parade finished, we walked over to the resort my little brother works at.  We all loaded up & he took us for a tour around the property. It is such a gorgeous resort - we will definitely
 be doing a staycation there next summer!

They have the resort decorated for the holidays so we took some fun pictures!

We headed home to rest because later that night, we had another parade to participate in!

Our home team decided to enter a float in the local light parade, "Glow on Monroe". Isn't that a darling name? The light parade route goes through downtown Buckeye which is on Monroe - cute, right?

We worked on the float Thursday & Friday nights & it was so much fun! We have a carpenter in our home team & he is so talented. He built the whole thing from scratch. 

Hood Home Team!

We went with a Gingerbread Church theme & I loved all the little touches we added.  

My adorable hubby & me before we walked the parade route! Yes, he is wearing Shrek ears & no, I do not know why.

The parade was such a fun experience - it is such a blessing to be able to have a group of people to do life with. I am very thankful God has blessed us with these people!

Last night was a great ending to a fun & festive weekend - we went down to my folks house & helped them decorate their tree. The kiddos were in heaven!
