Saturday's sunny skies drew a great crowd for Mathews County's Christmas parade.
way too many, my ears are still ringing lots of loud sirens.
And several silent striders.
|It was warm enough to wear shorts! I'm guessing those guys in the heavy cloaks and fluffy, feathered hats were wishing they'd opted for another outfit. Bermuda shorts, polo shirt and a pith helmet, perhaps?|
|This look says it all: "Meeeeeeerry Christmas!! Is this over yet? It's 70 degrees out here, and that's in the shade, which I'd sure like to be sitting in right about now."|
There were some real cuties in this year's parade.
|How I resisted the urge to go cup this boy's cheeks in my hands and |
smother him in kisses is beyond me.
|Hello, neighbor! She and her husband--who attended the Waverly Lane Christmas party later that evening--sponsor the high school's robotic team.|
|The cast of characters was seemingly endless.|
|Be still my heart! Someone else in Mathews has a crab hat!!|
This is my favorite daytime parade yet, there were so many more unusual entries and lots and lots of horses, which I love. These are but a few of many photos I took; I'll post more later in the week.
In other news, I am still at home resting up from my surgery and return to work this Friday, just in time for Christmas and New Years. But I'm feeling stronger every day.
It feels good to feel good.
