Angela's Favorite Day!

Thanksgiving is one of Angela's favorite days. Yes, she loves to see all of her family in one place. Yes, she loves all the wonderful food. Yes, she loves getting to stay up later than usual.

But what she loves most of all is the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade! Thanksgiving morning (tomorrow) will find her sitting squarely in front of the big-screen TV, watching the festivities, and cheering as she sees each of the giant balloon characters she recognizes. (who am I kidding? She knows ALL of them! LOL) She will stand to dance when a float comes by and is being ridden by any celebrity entertainer, but if they are any of the Disney variety she will be beside herself and blow kisses to him or her! Nobody, and I mean nobody, is allowed to interfere with the parade watching.

The funny thing is, in real life Angela is NOT a fan of parades. She doesn't like all the people or the sirens from emergency vehicles. She's o.k. at small town parades, but big city parades are NOT her cup of tea! However, this year I'm going to try taking her to the Hollidazzle Parade. I've wanted to take her for years but the weather is never quite good enough for me her. This year it ends just two days after I get home with Axel. I hope we can squeeze it in!

And do you know what happens after Thanksgiving? The Walt Disney Christmas Parade, of course!
