These were taken Saturday at the Holiday parade and State Capitol lighting ceremony. The kids had fun watching the parade. They also did a few crafts and had free cookies and hot chocolate. It was really cold, and they were both starting to get a little cranky and impatient for the lighting ceremony. After the lights were turned on on the Capitol building there was a fireworks show. This was the first time the boys have seen a live fireworks show. They were in awe! They both said all the waiting and freezing was worth it to see the fireworks. I wish I'd been able to get some better pictures of them in and around the Capitol, but they don't like to stand still too long for me :D!
What are you and your families doing for the holidays? We usually get up to see what Santa brought the boys. We'll play for a little while then get cleaned up and go to my parents' house for brunch and more presents for the boys. Hopefully it will be a pretty laid back day.

That looks so fun! But why are you guys sticking candy canes up mice butts? That's not very Christmasy of you.

I'm going to Boston so I can go out for Chinese food and see a movie with my parents.
