    Nicole, the parade is from 10-12, which means we won't be to Debbie's until after 12. Last night, I think I told you the parade was over at 10. If it works out, I sure hope you two can still join us for the party!

    I'm working on alternate transportation. The Blazer is still available, but I love the idea of a truck for the kidlettes in the back.

    Just wanted to let you know the black garland just arrived today. It has silver stars interspersed in it. I hope that's ok. I think it might actually add a little to it. I'll see Sheila this weekend so I'll give it to her so Mike can bring it with him.

    Do we have the skirt for the tree? If not, I can get one a little later, if you want.

    I've got a silver one that would go with the silver stars in the garland, if you guys think that would look okay.

    Red tree, black ornaments, black garland with silver stars, green float skirt, silver tree skirt...[face_thinking]

    I just talked to Mark and he confirmed that the Emperor and a Royal Guard will be in the parade!! YEA!!! They can't make it to the party, though.

    I'll be doing my reconnaissance mission later this afternoon and should find out where we're decorating and meeting and such.

    I was wondering if anybody was willing to carpool to the christmas parade/party. I'm in fontana/southridge, right next to the 10 and 15 freeway. I'm willing to chip in for gas. and I could either be picked up at my place or meet you somewhere.

    let me know!
    thanks,
    kevin

    But the party is in doubt.

    To make a long story short, my transportation plan (the bus) went out the window due to road closures and tight finances. The parade itself is close enough I can ride my bike without much trouble. (LOL imagine that- a Jedi on a bicycle!!![face_laugh] ) I don't know yet whether my Dad could take me or not. He sometimes works Saturdays.

    I'll do my best to make it. :) BTW, can the exchange gift be used if it's in good condition?

    Huh, I could have sworn that I posted something in here just yesterday. Weird.
    Anyway, I'll be at the party, but not the parade.

    I got the email. We've been officially accepted as parade participants. I'll get another email next week telling me what spot we're in. Nothing like waiting until the last minute!

    Chris,
    That is great to hear. We have been having fun planning our Merry "Sith"mas parade float and we are VERY happy that you will be our Vader!

    I got the fireplace in the mail yesterday...:)

    Oh, I changed my mind about getting the magnetic tape. The kind I could find at JoAnn's is really heavy duty, only 12' long and $10.99. Even with my coupon that will get really expensive really fast. I picked up some green duct tape instead. I figure we can use that instead.

    Hey Sonya, off topic here,
    Where did you get the colored duct tape? I need to get some and I don't know where to look. Also, price range please...
    Thanks:)

    I got it at Joann's. It was on a roll of 20 yards and I think it was about $4. They also had other colors like lime green, red, blue, dark purple. I think they usually have some up at the front registers.
