Christmas Parade

So we have lived in Phoenixville for what, 6 years now?  And we have never taken advantage of this little gem of a parade.  Well, there's a first time for everything.  I keep saying, it is getting easier and easier to do stuff like this as the kids are getting older.  They can stay out later and no baby is needing to get to bed early.
All the kids lined up and waiting for the parade to start.
Chloe and I staying warm together.
Audrey and friends (and the ever-present American Girl dolls)
The main feature of this parade seemed to be lit-up fire trucks
(and a lot of dressed up characters .... Elmo, Mickey Mouse, etc .... only they were really scary-looking costumes....)
Chloe taking it all in
and the big finale .... Santa Claus is coming through town!

It lasted maybe 10-15 minutes and it was over.  Which was fine because guess what?  
Baby, it's cold outside.
We came home and had hot chocolate and everyone even went to bed on time! 
Thanks Phoenixville for a fun little evening out!
