Holiday Presence :: Day Thirteen

Highlights of Saturday:

Beautiful weather for both the Holiday Parade and the Courthouse Lighting

A pushy woman and her 3 kids at the parade...the constant yelling and trying to get in front of me...resulting in a lot of weird heads and shoulders in the pictures I was trying to shoot.

The smell of an unwashed child's head steaming in the winter sun (courtesy of woman and her family above)

The tearing up of my eyes at the beginning of the parade coupled with the thought, "I'm so happy that I got to participate in all of the holiday celebrations in this town all these years...including performing in several parades and the Lighting"...then realizing by the end of the parade that I wanted to go back and open the shop because I was tired of watching the holiday festivities...(giggle...from nostalgia to boredom in 1.5 hours)

Watching the lighting with both Rozzilyn and Rich

A celebratory dinner out at a favorite restaurant with friends, in honour of Rich leaving his tie over job to jump into the gallery and the printing and the photography full time...

Having so much fun this weekend that I didn't even have time to turn on the computer on Sunday...making me miss one whole day of Holiday Presence...but then again, that's the fun of the holidays isn't it?

"I love a parade!"

She sure is strange! said...

We've missed our town's Christmas parade for the past few years, darn it. Usually someone is sick or we're just too worn out from life(meaning Mark had to work too late to get there in time).

Are you sure the tears weren't from the unwashed child's head??LOL Yuck.

I'm so glad you're sticking to this theme, its wonderful to come see what has gotten your attention presence-wise.
