Gulf Breeze Christmas Parade

There were two parades going on today that we really wanted to go to. This morning we started off by going to the Gulf Breeze Parade. It is short and sweet. The have a few floats, our G.B. High School Band, some dance schools, horses... the Gulf Breeze sized parade. The kids love it because it isn't crowded, and they throw tons of candy... Halloween all over again! And I'm talkin the good stuff. Oh yeah and tons of beads too. I don't like beads though. They go straight into my trash can.

The kids enjoying the band.

After a while I noticed that Tristan wasn't hanging out by the road, smart kid. He was posted up in the back of the car eating an Airhead.

Cayden puting on some beads he just caught.

Tristan loved the Santa doll a guy threw to him. He ran and picked it up gave it a big hug. He loved the candy he was eating more though. He wouldn't stop eating to take the picture.
And... there he is. Why does Santa always ride on the Fire Truck?

We had a great time at the Gulf Breeze parade. We appreciate it more after going to Pensacola's. Good Ol' Gulf Breeze.

Pensacola Christmas Parade

Tonight we went to Pensacola's Christmas parade. It was okay. There was a lot more bands and floats, but the candy was no good. And you know that's all the kids cared about. Especially after Gulf Breeze's Parade. We were there for 2 hours and there was still more parade to come. Sadie was ready to leave after about an 1 1/2, I am suprised she made it 30 more minutes peacefully. :)
We tried to get a group picture, but that's like pulling teeth.

Where Tristan hung out all night.
Cayden's favorite part of the parade. I guess Pens. has a Star Wars Club or somethin. It's blurry and orange cause I hate using my flash.
All together, we had a pretty good day. Come on Christmas! We are ready!

Family Pictures

Yesterday and Sunday we went to take some family pictures for our Christmas cards. And I guess it is a three year old thing, but Tristan was not having it. But at least he agreed to be in the pictures. Right?
