Monday Morning Flowers and Weekend Wrap-Up

Happy Monday!

Are you keeping busy these days?

I am!

Let's all stop and smell our computer screens/Monday Morning Flowers.

Ah...that was good.  Now please back away from your screens (and wipe them down if necessary.)

This weekend was our town's annual Christmas parade!  

The day was warm but windy.

I love this parade and Brian (CVNM) came up to watch it with me, making it even better!

Gotta love a California Christmas parade!  

I ALWAYS cheer for the marching bands, but especially all the band parents who help out!

The theme this year was "The Four Paws of Christmas" and centered around animal care/adoption.
Clifford was the Grand Marshall!

As always, Santa was the Grand Finale!  

After the parade was over, everyone gathered at the park for music and food.  

 I love traditions like this.  Don't you?

I was always one of those marching band geeks, so thanks for cheering!
Glad you two got to enjoy the parade.

What a lovely way to spend the weekend. I missed our Christmas parade. Since the lovelies have grown up, I tend to avoid them. All those years of having to walk it when they were in it kind of did me in. LOL

we don't have Christmas parades here. Probably because the floats can't make it through the

Too cold for parades where I'm at. Oh, they do them...I just won't stand outside for them. Most times you can catch them on the tube instead.

Hooray for the band parents!! ;)

That looks like a fun parade and I love the theme they chose. Your flowers brought a smile to my face.

Hi Betty - tradition is good - and the Christmas Parade looks to be great fun and a good way for the town to support each other ...

Cheers Hilary

Thanks for the flowers! I've never really liked parades overall. I do like the marching bands though.
