December 4th is our Little Man's Namesday! We had a pretty regular morning and early afternoon but at about 4:00, we had some yummy peach crisp (thanks to the advent cleaning out of the fridge and freezer, we had summer peaches to use!) for our special dessert and presents. Our boy loved the barn and animals that he received (as did his sister!). After we played a bit, we headed out to a Christmas Parade in a nearby town. It was the first time the children had been to a parade and the first time Fr. John and I were to one at night! It was really nice! Our little girl was very taken with the "princesses" (beauty queens) riding on the backs of convertibles. She even practiced their special beauty queen wave... We are in trouble with this one!
