Christmas Parade 2010

Today was a first for me. I rode in my first Christmas parade. Normally I'm a spectator but decided to take the plunge this year and ride on my dad's new wagon. It was great! I had a blast!

Of course when I whip out my camera to take a few pictures my battery is stone.cold.dead. I was able to snap a few pictures with my iPhone and better yet.... I was able to take a couple of short videos.

This is Willie or Waylon, one of the outlaw mules, before the parade. I can't tell them apart.

This is Mr. & Mrs. Claus aka Daddy and Mama. Don't they look cute in their Christmas red?

I hate I did not get a close up of the bedazzled bling on the front of Daddy's shirt. I found that shirt for him last year at Cracker Barrel. It is from the Alan Jackson collection and has been henceforth and forevermore declared the Christmas parade shirt. I lifted this picture from some nice person's eBay auction:

This is player #1 (aka Josh) and player #2 in training (Jacob) getting the wagon all decked out before the parade.

Jacob striking a pose. I think he liked it because he's already tried to Facebook it.

This is Jacob after he said something he shouldn't have said. He did that a lot today. Just kidding. Sort of.

Finally, this is a picture of the Nativity vignette I have on top of my piano.

I bought the Nativity set years ago and it is one of my favorite Christmas decorations. Last weekend Jacob helped me put up 5 trees, one large one and four table tops. The painting in the back was a birthday gift from my friend. I love it! It's on canvas and is definitely a keeper.

So given my blogging track record, I may or may not be back before Christmas. If not, I wish you a very merry Christmas!
