Parade!

We’ve just got home from the Winchester Christmas Parade. The girls had an absolute blast and loved riding the float and singing Christmas songs. As they were on one of the ‘better’ floats they came right at the end, just before the big red man – all very exciting.

It felt good to be seeing the parade for the second time – time to stop and think how far we’ve come since our first parade, when we’d only been here a few weeks and everything was still so new and so strange. To be honest I could probably just repost all the photos I took at last year’s parade – not much had changed! Except, of course, the addition of a couple of Kiwis!

Costumes on! The theme of the float was Charlie Brown and both girls were dressed as Woodstock!

And so that’s all done for another year. As soon as Olive and Edie got in the car they were already debating possible themes for next year’s float!

Until next time everyone…take care :)

    Well Girls what a thrill. Just like Mummy, Aunty Helen, AUnty Sarah when they used to climb aboard the James Smith’s parade truck alongside Granda who was playing his trumpet. Just think more Christmas lights to be seen in the Taradale streets.

    In a few days we are having our Christmas Show at Da Vinci. It makes me think of Olive playing my mum in the Summer Show ‘ The cuddliest cuddle in the world’.
    Miss you girls! Already sending you my warmest Christmas wishes as being really busy with the show and things, I wouldn’t want to forget. Have a lovely time. xxx
