Who would have known that a community not far from us could put together such an amazing event every year?
Christmas Car parade, bounce house, dance performances by young and old, food, Santa, Orchestras, ice skating rink, a beautifully decorated Christmas tree and church, high school marching bands, a jazz bands and more…
This was and will be the number one Christmas event we will go to every year from now on.
Lexi has been fascinated with classical and jazz musical instruments since about 13-14 months so I try to take her to any available orchestra concert that performs early on in the day, so she got SUCH a kick out of watching the marching band, the jazz band and the orchestra. You can see the wonder in her eyes in every single photos.
At the end I will post some videos, taken with the iPhone showing her excitement.
One word about Santa, we hyped him up enough that she was treating him about the same way she does Disney characters: excited and trying to show him around. So when she walked up to Santa, she proceeded to show him the tree and ornaments. We are still not sure about how to approach the whole Santa/presents issue. But I’ll describe what we did this year before she understands TOO much about the logistics of how presents make it under the tree in another post.
