When I go for a few days without blogging, it feels like there is so much to catch up on. I begin to feel disconnected from all of you. I am going to try my very hardest to blog faithfully over the next couple of weeks although things are starting to get even busier as we prepare for the big return.
Let me back up to a week ago Sunday when we took the boys to Union Street for the Christmas lights switch on, a big Aberdeen family affair that also seemed to be a glow-in-the-dark light saber convention. Some brilliant guy got the idea to sell the fluorescent weaponry out of a cardboard box on the side of the road and must have made a killing.
Here is our little party setting out around 4:30. Addison requested to wear his Halloween fireman coat and hat. Can someone please explain the way a toddler's mind works?
Davis bundled up against the cold.
Mama and the boys waiting for the parade to start along Union Street. It was supposed to begin at 5, but we waited for another 40 minutes until the parade made it to us. As Santa, or Father Christmas as I prefer, passed underneath each set of lights, they were switched on accompanied by a shower of confetti.The lights before switch on.
And a little video of the show. It wouldn't be complete without bagpipers.
