Shaun decided that we ought to leave a little bit later and catch the parade at the end, that way we'd already be at the end of the parade to watch the finale (a final band song and the lighting of the glorious town Christmas tree).
I like this girl. There's just something about her that I can really relate to.
Oh, and here's the man of the hour. Santa Claus. Or, "Sam". Amelle told me that his name is actually "Sam", she overheard someone say, "Hey Sam, it's time to light the tree". Everyone knows that Santa's helpers do the local events.
Here's Wendy pouring hot cocoa for the kids. She is very generous with the marshmallows, isn't she? I love that about her.
And no small town Christmas event would be complete without one of these: a man dressed up in a slipcover. He may've been a wise man on the nativity float (he sort of emanates wisdom), or perhaps he was an ambassador from another planet who came down to wish the earthlings of the seacoast region "good tidings. I can't be sure.
And here's a gratuitous cute baby shot. Hi Beckett, you little cutie pie. I'm sure this kid will never recognize me when he's older because he's never seen my face without a camera plastered up to it. He probably thinks that I'm some sort of cyclops robot lady.
