Monticello's Christmas Parade

As you know, I LOVE this town I live it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Where else can you leave Lunch with Santa on the Train and be in walking distance of the cutest downtown square in IL, dozens of shops and cute restaurants and get ready for an amazing small town parade....and free hot cocoa!
 This picture is so precious...but its a bit odd that its 60 degrees!  That's ok, she's darling!
 Marching band
 Boy scouts
 banks and other local businesses....and....what we had been waiting for.....
 THE KARATE KIDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 Alaric's Dojo walked in the parade...that's Bubba and a couple of his besties being pulled in the Rickshaw by their Sensai!
 Huge deal to be IN the parade and throw candy!
 Look at the sweet face of that boy as he waved to us!
 So many friends were on floats with the groups they support!
 Horses too!
 And of course, SANTA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 Mara was pretty happy with her loot!
