The Day After...


The day after Thanksgiving many refer to it as Black Friday. Never really understanding that name I prefer to call it the day after Thanksgiving. In our community we celebrate the start of the holidays on Thanksgiving. Our Christmas parade was late this afternoon and the weather was beautiful. Hardly Christmas weather, but no one was complaining. I thought I would share with you some scenes from today.There were puppies...
children...

babies...

an awaiting crowd standing in front of the best place to get Candles...JP's


Santa's house where they were serving hot chocolate. Santa was to be seen in the parade later...

my friend Jennifer putting on a show...



my friend Vanessa and her family and friends...

ice cream eaters...

the Grand Marshall...not sure which of the three, but he's in there somewhere...

James the emcee...who did a mighty fine job I might add...

Since that crazy elf was driving Santa a little too fast in that hot sports car, I literally got the tail end of them. This has to be one of the best pictures I've ever taken. I absolutely love it and will be doing much with this shot later.

a nutcracker...

another crazy elf at the wheel of a John Deere...never mind the kid he's run over...

Frosty...

kids...and finally...

the mistletoe masterers...

We didn't address the Day After Thanksgiving head on today. We waited before we forced our way onto the highways of 36&63. That in itself is worth a gold medal nowadays. I was able to get the hubby's gifts, a niece's and a bit for our grandson. Hubby got several gifts for himself. He's so thoughtful that way. Oh, I bought shampoo. I would love to keep my niece Emilee's gift. I begged my hubby to choose it, he has his eye on something else. If she doesn't love it, I'm gonna snatch it from her and call it my own. Emilee's name was written all over this gift. If I'm lucky someone else bought her one too so I can take this one back!! It's a monkey that ooo ooo ooo's and hugs. She did that same oooo oooo oooo thing this time last year and it was just too cute.
Tomorrow is another day. Hopefully there's not too many $$$ signs in tomorrow...Happy Holidays Everyone!!

Thanks for all the cool pictures of the parade. It looks like a lot of fun, and what a pretty day for it! I love the picture of the mistletoe masterers... As for the gift, I've been known to wrap up things for myself... Tyler taught me that... One year I had a whole sack of them to open through January... It was FUN!!!!
