This was the best weekend I've had in such a long time! We had a change of plans...we still went to the ballet Friday night (Ella loved it!!), but Kaleb's family was going up to Natchitoches for the Christmas Festival on Saturday, and we decided to make the trip up, too. As far as I know, Ella had never been to the main festival before, just the fireworks, and we hadn't been in a couple years, so we got up Saturday morning and headed up to Nack-town in time for the parade. Katie (my sister) was hosting at her house, which is conveniently located on 2nd street, on the parade route and close enough to walk to any of the festivities. It was such a great time with family and friends, some that I hadn't seen in more than a year! The fireworks were beautiful, as always. Ella was bored about 5 minutes into the show, but it really was impressive! I have lots of pictures on my facebook and myspaces, but I'll post a few here. The only bad thing about going was the LONGEST DRIVE HOME EVER. My amazing, sweet husband drove, for which I am so very thankful. I nodded off so much that I actually questioned whether or not I was driving and freaked out at one point thinking I'd fallen asleep behind the wheel. Other than that, it was wonderful, though!! And church today was awesome, the perfect end to a pretty perfect weekend.
I'll leave you with some pictures before I fall asleep at the computer. I hate Monday mornings, and tomorrow's will come way too soon!!
My husband takes great firework shots!!
