Moscow Neighborhood Parade
Anne and Duane's friends, Britt and Erik, invited friends to their neighborhood for the first annual holiday parade around their neighborhood. Anne and Duane reigned as King and Queen and got to ride on their own float.
Lots of friends came in costume, with wagons, pets, and bicycles.
There was a committee for the food, for the Elf Exchange, and for wrapping the gifts.
Some clever fathers made a gingerbread house out of cardboard!
Colin found great treasures for his parents and grandma at the Elf Exchange. He bought a Verisign treasure for Duane and a 1776 - 1976 commemorative plate for me because he's noticed my pretty plates in the kitchen. I appreciated the gift, although it's too small to fit in the plate holder, it will fit on my kitchen counter. The creativity and energy of these young families amazes me and I'm always delighted to be included in the fun.
