Light the Night

Tonight, we went to a fun parade and tree lighting at a local shopping area. It’s not even Thanksgiving yet but I didn’t want the kids to miss it! The kids got to blow bubbles  into the air “magically” lighting the huge Christmas tree! They had complimentary holiday themed refreshments, horse drawn carriages, free trolley rides and Marines accepting Toys for Tots donations. The kids loved that Santa was finally “here”. Hannah has a pretty good idea of what she wants to write on her list for him.
This year, Christmas will be even more fun since the kids are bigger and can really enjoy what Christmas is all about! Even Noah is walking around talking about baby Jesus. He saw a manger scene in Hobby Lobby and immediately pointed out baby Jesus and Mary all by himself! I was completely amazed!

We are excited for Thanksgiving and can’t wait to start putting up Christmas decorations in just a few days!
