The one with all the snowflakes

Snowflake lane to be exact. We have come to love and look forward to this fun tradition. Snowflake lane is a place by the mall that is all decked out for Christmas, with giant snowflakes projected onto the buildings, extra loud music playing to dance and sing to, real "Toy" soldiers beating their drums, beautiful snow princesses granting kids wishes, Frosty the Snowman and Rudolph posing for pictures, and other fun characters hand out candy-cane lollipops. All the dressed up characters are local teenagers and they always do such an excellent job! Oh, and did I mention it "snows?" They somehow turn soap to look just like snow-flakes falling. Very cool. Erik wasn't able to make it this year (thanks to the auditors lol). But the kids and I braved the crowd and had a great time!

Savannah was like, "Whaaa?!"

Troy giving the abominable dog? a hug. Not really sure what his character is lol

Three sweet princess...and Rudolph. Brooklyn asked me why Rudolph was walking with the princess. She decided it was probably his first time, so he didn't want to get lost. :)
Even though there was a prince, Troy did NOT want to be in this picture. Too girly for him!!

Savannah had a blast!!

With one of the REALLY tall "toy" soldiers

My sweet buddy, and Brooklyn photo-bombing :)

See the drummer on the pedestal behind us?
