Holidazzle 2012

Yesterday was Juliette’s first trip to see the Holidazzle parade.  We ate downtown with Harald’s parents and his sister, then she and Juliette and I went outside to await the parade.  She was so excited to see the different floats and characters that went by, but especially enamored of Santa.  She said she also really liked the Hansel & Gretel house, too.  It was snowing lightly through the whole parade, so it was as close to perfect as it gets (they were a little late starting).

Here are some pictures from last night for those unfamiliar with the Holidazzle parade.  They aren’t very clear – my gloves and my camera were not getting along last night – but you get the idea.

Welcome back, Winter!

(OK, I can’t take credit for the title, the StarTribune did it already in today’s paper)


For those of you not from around here and who enjoy seeing pictures of the snow, here is a little of what we got this weekend – it continues to snow several more inches after these pictures were taken.  We’ll certainly have a white Christmas now!
