You all need to tell me if this is a regional thing or not. We attend about three local parades a year and at all of them, the parade participants throw candy out to the parade viewers. And I'm not talking about a few pieces here and there. Kids bring bags and collect a fair amount of sugar.
Thankfully, the girls really aren't that interested in eating candy. They only seem to like M&Ms and chocolate. For this holiday parade, the girls liked collecting candy. They didn't really eat any.
Growing up, I don't remember massive amounts of candy being thrown around. Do all parades do this now?
Before heading up to the parade, the girls posed for some pictures in front of the door. The usual spot. I wanted to snap off some picture because they looked so cute in their hats.
We have a cabinet in the front hall (attached to the wall for safety, I would like to add) with a glass door. The girls frequently use this as their mirror. After Allie put her hat on, she looked at herself in the the mirror. Anna did the same. Em was in the other room and did not. That is why Anna is crying. Because Em did not look in the mirror.
It was a bit chilly. If you can't tell.
Em styling with pink fuzzy boots.
Emily and Anna. Poor Anna. Her hat kept sliding down over her eyes.
When's Santa coming?
I used my 85mm lens (Nikon 85mm f/1.8) for all of the parade pictures. I wanted some updated portraits of the girls and because they were in a bit of a state of shock combined with complete interest in the parade, I took the opportunity to fire off a ton of portraits. I'll post those soon.
