Santa Parade



It was a lovely day in Southern Ontario this weekend. Saturday was our annual Smithville Santa Claus parade. This was the first one I have been to and it was also Paisley's first one ever.
I didn't hold out to much hope for her, I figured she wouldn't understand or even be interested, but boy was I wrong. The weather was perfect it had snowed all morning but by the time the parade started at 2pm it had stopped and was quite mild. What a pretty scene. It was quite a parade for a small town and Paisley enjoyed the whole thing. Her favorite was the marching bands and after they passed she kept asking for more drums. It was so cute watching her waving to Santa, I really didn't think she would understand, when she saw him I heard her say HOHOHO. The only sad part was I forgot my camera!!!

So as you can see after a long day of HOHOHO it was time for bed!

Now for knitting! I found this pattern on Knitty.com for fingerless gloves with a mitten flap made with sock yarn. Seeing as I have a stash of sock yarn I thought I would give them a try and voila! They only took me a week to finish (inbetween working and doing a little Christmas shopping) and didn't even use the whole 100g ball. Now my hands will look just as good as my feet. You can find the pattern at:

Tonight I have to start a new kitty cat hat for Paisley because she has already grown out of last years and another one for 5 year old Jennifer, our new niece who joined our family this summer. It has been a family tradition that all the girls must have one.

Those Broadstreet mitts are very nice! I was thinking I might try to make them for myself eventually. :) They'd be perfect for keeping warmish and still being able to fiddle with little kid stuff. :) Pee is so cute. I'm glad she had fun at the parade. We were going to take the kids to the parade here, but instead ended up with dinner company -- the parade here is an evening parade with a billion lights on each float. It started at 6pm I think.

Ooooooh, now I REALLY want the hat. Look at that little cutie!
