I Love a (Christmas) parade

I Love a (Christmas) parade

Rode in our first parade as a family/church. The Midway Christmas parade has become the largest Christmas parade in the state of NC, and our church got to be a part of it! We started out kinda small – 3 bikes with 4 riders and the kids in our red wagon towed by Taya. Somehow our numbers swelled to about a dozen bikes before the parade started. Pretty cool. Was fun wishing the the throngs Merry Christmas and throwing candy at them. I think that’s about the only time that people are happy to have things thrown at them . Even though 3 of the bikes (including mine – no biggie, just overheated) broke down before the end of the parade, we still managed to represent our church and have a good time. We’ve always watched this parade, and can remember when it was still just a handful of firetrucks, farm tractors, and tow trucks. It’s really grown, and it was really cool to get to be a part of it. Can’t wait ’til next year!

Until next time…..

Wow, after holding on to his teeth for 6 years, Ian is letting go of 2 of them in 2 days. The tooth fairy was quite generous – he got $1.50 for that first tooth, I expect he’ll get the same for the second one. He was terrified to lose the first one, but once it was out, the next one was no big deal.
They’re growing up so fast. Yikes!

Until next time…..

8 down, 88 or more to go!!

November 6, 2006 Leave a comment

Can’t beleive it’s been 8 years already! We got married 8 years ago today, SOOOO much has happened since then. Mostly good, some not so good. We’ve got 4 GREAT kids, a place we love, and lots of friends around us. Wouldn’t trade it for the world. I can still remember standing in front of the Judge, Taya’s hands were shaking so bad when she tried to put my ring on, I had to hold her hand too. So many memories, it’s hard to beleive we’ve fit that much into only 8 years. It’s strange, it seems like we’ve known each other forever, but in another way, it seems like we’ve haven’t been together very long at all. Hard to explain, but someone may know what I mean. Anyway.

Until next time…..
