Small town Christmas parades are the *best*.
Last year, I mentioned wanting to build a family float. I wasn’t sure at that time how elaborate I wanted to build, I just wanted everyone to work together. I wanted to meet new friends in our community. I wanted to build memories and have fun.
My family has all helped in one way or another. They’ve pitched in Santa hats. They cut, colored and painted. They have helped breathe life into a project I had in my head last year. (They may be just a little tired of paper machè).
