Its Beginning to Look a Lot Like Chirstmas!

As most of you know, I love Christmas. One great thing about living in Kansas is that its so cold it helps get me in the Christmas mood. This weekend was very Christmasy for us. On Friday night we went to the Manhattan Christmas Parade. It was soooo cold, but great fun. Somehow, the men found better things to do - big surprise.

Kinley got tuckered out with all the excitement of the parade, so she had to nap to get her second wind.

We thought this truck with antlers was really cool!

The big fire truck!

Little cold during the parade, but lots of fun.
Santa waving at Kinley! She always says - That's my friend!
Saturday night we had a gingerbread house building party. We got together and here are the results. Not to shabby for amateur.
Kinley and Tom worked hard on their house. Ok, Tom worked hard and Kinley ate the candy and put a few on the house.
Tom & Kinley's finished house (it collapsed not 2 minutes after the picture)
My attempt at a cute little country house.
Couldn't leave this out...Tricia and John got Kinley a great new "dancing skirt". It came with a light-up feather boa, a feather crown, and the skirt plays the nutcracker music. I wish I could have got a picture of her face when she first realized what it was, but that's how it goes. This was Sunday after church. You can tell she thinks its the best ever!
