Emily has some friends over tonight, and it really is a pajama party with all their coordinated pajamas! Earlier today Emily, her friends, and Oliver entered in the Deerfield Christmas parade. They dressed up as elves and bakers, handing out candy on a cookie tray. It was quite cute! After the parade, "Santa" visited the firehouse where we had hot chocolate and cookies. Parades have definitely become more exciting these days; The little children got as much, if not more candy at the parade than they did at Halloween! I don't know about you, but I don't remember getting candy at parades!!!!!
