I mentioned a while ago that I was entering a float in our yearly santa/christmas parade. Well I did and it was a success. The theme was -x-mas around the world- We did a float showing a brazillian x mas. It was a great time. We even had brazillian x mas music pumping. (i will post pictures later) Best of all, we won a 500 dollar prize to our local grocery store we had to split it, and I got 200 dollars out of it) We won the category-"Best new Float"-meaning it was our first year entering and compared to all the other new entries... ours was the BEST. As I was just writing this, I got a phone call from the offical judges, and I was supposed to recieve a plaque and I must go pick it up. What an exciting day.
