December/ Christmas Parade

December was such a busy month for me, It flew by after all was said and done but while it was going on I thought it might never end. I still had my Christmas spirit and was excited about gift giving and watching the girls on Christmas morning. More about that later.

The busiest part was getting ready for the Christmas Parade. We have a float each year in the parade for our Camp Fire kids. The parade has a different theme each year and floats are judged in different categories according to that theme. The theme for this year was "The Magic of Christmas" We decided to the kids that meant, Santa's gifts. Our float turned out so cute this year! LynEd and Stephanie made the doll bodies for our Elves and I created the clothes and faces. Each group dressed as a specific kind of toy & We were very proud how everything turned out and as it turns out our adorable float won first place in our category!

Here are some shots of our winning float!

As I mentioned before, Each Camp Fire group picked a toy idea and dressed accordingly, our group was Jack n the boxes, it turned out to be a bit trickier than we had originally thought to keep the boxes up on the girls, but all worked out and the boxes barely made it to the end of he parade.. hehe! Here is a shot of Me, Cathy and our group.

Our youngest group was Rag dolls...
