|because dax's pre-school class is called "the owls" he's got quite a few owl ornaments this year.|
after tree decorating was finally done we found some other weekend down time to head to a live walk through nativity one night and then also to watch the local Christmas parade. dax really got into all of the activities this year and especially loved the parade since it wasn't too cold outside and he got a lollipop.

|we were all particularly fond of this high school marching band from southeast raleigh high. this group of folks really got into it and stole the show!|
will held dax on his shoulders for the majority of the parade so he could see everything. after a while he got a little fidgety, so i took over the holding process. dax was liking this new perspective, and will was thankful for a break.
|here we are seeing the big man in red.|
we're all excited to celebrate the season of Jesus' birth and cannot wait to spend time with family over the Christmas holiday break.
