So, we baked, dipped, wrapped and tagged until 1:00 am Saturday morning. Everything had to be fresh you know. We were at the school selling our wares from 8:30 until closing at 4:00. This is where things got a bit glitchy. We still had tear down but Erin and Audrey had to be on a float downtown by 4:30 bundled up and looking gorgeous as they would portray two of the 5 Victorian carolers on our fellowships 'Jesus ~ the same yesterday, today and forever' float in the cities Christmas light parade. Thankfully my sister happened to show up at a quarter to 4:00 so I sent the girls with her to get ready. Larry would be driving the float, so he could take over from there. That left Hillary and I loading 2 booths ourselves and then trying to get to our designated meeting spot across from the courthouse before 5:00. There we met up with family and friends.
I got these interesting, funky shutter speed shots of my niece on the dance float, some angel friends carrying the banner, and our crew waiting to see it all. What I didn't get because by this time it was absolutely too dark, was a discernible picture of my lovelies donning their muffs and singing alongside their friend on their glittering float. It was cold, and hectic, and magical... Have I mentioned that I love this time of year?
