Holiday Cheer

It's a great day for a balloon parade!
Today we took Parker to the Festival of Tree's parade in Davenport.  He loved the balloons!  It was 40 degrees out, we had great seats, great company and a GREAT time!

We met up with the Nelson's at the parade.  Carter and Parker are great buddies!

As usual, Parker loved the bands....they weren't as good as the Marching Streaks though...
Whoa, that's a big balloon!

The boys even did their first Y.M.C.A. dance.
The big man...Santa Claus even made an appearance.  Parker is still trying to figure out how to get Santa to come to his house.
Think, think, think....
We had a great time and hope to make this a yearly tradition.

Tonight was also the Lighting of John Deere Commons.  Parker was a trooper and held out until the celebration started this evening.  

This was just the kind of day to get the Stecher's into the holiday spirit! 
Gotta run, we're going to start to put up some lights and decorations around here!

Budding Artist

Parker has taken up the art of drawing.
He wants to be a cartoonist like his dad!
Travis drew the sheep in Parker's room and is EXCELLENT at drawing Disney characters.

Parker's first Masterpiece.
You can bet this is going on the refrigerator! :)

Parker's One Year Photos

Thanks Jodie!  You did an amazing job as always.  No one will ever be able to tell that it was 33 degrees out when we did this ;)
