If the kids had their way... (which often they do)

Apparently it is now a tradition to go to the parade downtown at Christmas time each year. We didn't really mean for it to be. But according to Bethany, it is. Not according to Ben. He decided he didn't like freezing his back side off and stayed home. He's a big boy. He can pick and choose his traditions if he wants to.

Of course, it is also a tradition to ride the light rail, and to go to the Macy's display afterwards. Honestly. It's hard to argue with all of that cuteness.

Lovely pictures! As I look at them I want to say, "You'd better take off those heavy coats - you'll get hot and sweaty!" It's hard to imagine it's cold(er than I've ever experienced) where you are!!

That's funny that Bethany decided it was your family's tradition. Ben and I happened to be downtown when the Holidazzle started one night and we stopped to watch it for a little while. I enjoyed watching it (from a skyway) and all the kids around us enjoying themselves too. I felt guilty for not having the kids with us to see it.... Maybe we'll all go together next year.
