The coolest parade

When we go to Thanksgiving in Austin, we usually go to the 'Blue Santa Parade' downtown. It is so much fun--just because they have REAL floats! The kids get to give a gift for kids that won't be getting much for Christmas, so it's a great learning experience with giving, too. Love it! Here are just a few fun pics:

What fun! We saw some pretty neat floats, had some fun with all of our cousins (Dustin had to stay home with Mimi and Pawpaw--he was sick!), and then went to eat pizza!!! Check out how BIG this pizza is:

So much fun! Heading back to Austin this weekend...looking forward to it!

Take this!

When we went to get pictures with Santa, we were all there, waiting in line, and I snapped this picture of Rudy sticking his tongue out at Abby (my aunt's dog). Thought it was way too funny not to share!

Santa 09

We got the kids' picture with Santa tonight at the mall...ALL of our 'kids'!!! They had dog/cat night tonight, and my aunt talked me into it! It was SO funny walking through the mall with our dogs, and my aunt with her dog--we got some funny comments and looks! Mostly nice....some not so nice. I couldn't quit laughing!

The kids loved seeing Santa and telling him their one 'want' for Christmas. Thankfully, it was all things I had heard over the past month or so. Santa will do a good job this year!

Here's the pic...couldn't have done any better!
