Holiday Fun With Our Bloggy Friends - Christmas & Winter 2015

Messy Messy Fail - Off to see our local Christmas Parade this past Friday night, and would you believe it took us a 1/2 hour to get out of the house.  I've been taking the kid(s) for about 3 years now and have never made it in time to see my high school's marching band - we can just never seem to make it on time (the band typically is near the front of the parade).  The UPKer is crying because we are missing the band and I cannot find a parking spot, the toddler is crying because his hat is covering his face, and I cannot get the double stroller out of the trunk of my champagne Camry that I call Cecilia (don't ask).  Let's just say I was sweating.

Tidy Victory - So what did I do?  I shifted into high gear, tore the heaviest stroller I have ever lifted out of the trunk, threw the kids in their seats and hauled you-know-what UPHILL to run ahead of the marching band.  My some miracle, I made it just a couple of blocks up - the band had stopped to play their whole song - and we FINALLY got to see them play.  The toddler was clapping, the UPKer was cheering, and I was trying to catch my breath.  All in all it was a good night - we stopped at a hotel room some friends had gotten for the evening to watch the parade below and Santa literally pointed and waved at the UPKer while we watched - priceless!
