Another week has flown by. I can feel December quickly slipping through my fingers, just like it does every single year.
This link-up has been so much fun. I wanted to take a second to highlight a few of my favorite posts so far.
Desiree and Elizabeth were able to meet up and go see the LA Zoo lights

This week started out with attending Joplin’s annual Christmas parade. We are fortunate that our church is located right in the heart of down-town off of Main Street. Every year the parade goes right in front of the building so we sit on the sidewalk in front of the church leaving us close to warmth, hot chocolate and a bathroom if we need one.
It was easily the coldest Christmas parade that I remember. Unfortuantely it was also the longest. The parade had several dead spaces where we waited for several minutes between floats and the kids were bound and determined to see Santa at the end. We almost froze, the crowd was pretty much completely gone, but we endured and saw Santa!
Speaking of Santa we sent him a couple letters this week. Blogger fail, I forgot to take a picture of the list before we dropped them off. But just in case your wondering Marissa asked for a Panda bear and Emily asked for Minnie Mouse stuff.
Anyone surprised? I didn’t think so.
The letters were dropped of at a special mail box in the parks and rec office. The girls should soon be receiving a special letter in the mail soon.
I joined Stephanie from Wife Mommy Me for her Instagram Christmas photo challenge.
Here is a collage from my first week.
