Christmas Parade


We had a wonderful time yesterday at a Christmas- Parade-watching party in Atlanta with Grandmother, Granddaddy & our cousin, Scott.
The children enjoyed doughnuts, cookies and ice cream as we watched the Christmas Parade.
After the parade we had lunch and walked a few blocks to Cenntennial Olympic Park for the children to run off some of their energy before we made the long drive home.

It was a true, beautiful Atlanta day...clear blue skies, temps in the 60s. Fun memories!

I think the last one should be framed.

I agree with Perri...the last picture should be framed! I LOVE IT! It looks like all of you are in the Holiday spirit! The parade looks like a lot of fun. It is too cold here in MN right now to be outside so I am very jealous.
Thanks for sharing.

These pictures are so sweet! I have a weakness when it comes to pictures...I take them everyhwere we go-I just can't get enough of them! Plus,we have a wonderful photographer in our town that does beautiful B&W photography(I noticed you have some beautiful ones,too)---we have pictures everywhere...I would rather spend alot on photos,than huge oil paintings. My husband recently purchased some really nice professional digital cameras for his dental practice...now,he takes more than I do!!!

Thanks for sharing these! It looks like you all had fun! You have a lovely family!

oh my goodness, are you kidding me? AWESOME pictures. The last one is so artistically well-done.... with the black coats, the boys' red pants, the three yellow balloons, and the girl in the middle. It's so balanced with all the bright colors! NICE. Y'all are such a beautiful family.

I'm leaving for Atlanta on Thursday to visit (of all things) a blogging friend! We are really like long-lost friends that God is finally reuniting, so we're excited to finally meet each other and spend the weekend with fun girl-bonding time. It will just solidify the strong friendship we've already formed. But I'll be thinking of the cute "triplet family" who I love in Georgia. :)

GREAT PHOTOS! They really captured the moment! I agree with above, frame the last one!

The last picture is my favorite--what a beautiful picture of your family! I wish we lived closer together; my three would be such a fun mix with yours! They'd be 1/2, 2 x 4 (!), and 5--now that would be a sight to see! (Addie would be the 1/2; that looks better than saying she's "zero")

i love the one with you and kate. great smiles. and i agree with the others...the last one is a classic. hey, i wanted to ask you if you've thought about making a photo book (since i know you are not a scrapbooker)...they have some great options at photoworks.com. its really easy to upload pictures....just fyi! i'm making some calendars for christmas from that site. anyway, its an idea for the future (since you lost so many photos recently!).

We have never met, or even blogged. So, I hope this doesn't freak you, out! But you have the most beautiful children. And such a sweet looking family. You are so blessed!

I first saw that last pic on your profile and loved it. The three balloons. Too sweet! Your family is precious. I wish more and more often that I could freeze time.
