Christmas at Disneyland...the Parade!

A Christmas Tradition...
Every other year our children desert our nest at Thanksgiving to fly to the in-laws.  We worked it that way so we could all be together when it is our year.  On the off-year George and I have made it our tradition to take a trip to Disneyland.  I love Disneyland at Christmas!  I bring my shopping list for the Granddaughters along.  There are no Black Friday sales but my annual pass nets me 20% off all my purchases...which to me is as good as a sale.

The weather was perfect...warm and sunny.  Since we missed the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade...here are some pics from the "Christmas Fantasy" parade.




The Parade...
A parade needs a marching band. 

We snagged a pretty good spot for photos this time.

Mrs. Claus reads the Children's letters to Santa

Tigger and Pooh!

This Tigger is for McKenzie...who loves him.

Dancing Snowflakes

Gingerbread Men always make me happy!

Building a Gingerbread House

Still Striving for Attention

Isn't she pretty?

I only count six dwarves...who's missing?

Who else...Dopey!

Building the Toys!

Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen....Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen
Oops!  Didn't get them all in the shot.

This shot should be Santa.  Just as we went to take his picture...the camera said "Memory Card Full."
I know...a Christmas Parade without Santa is like Thanksgiving dinner without pumpkin pie...
Merry Christmas anyway!

I hope your holiday was filled with love and laughter,
.

Oh I'm glad it's YOU in the sleigh! How fun! And those gingerbread men were so cute! They make me happy, too. I keep 2 of them up all year round in my kitchen!

Thanks for telling me you're a faithful reader! That made my morning. ♥

LOL - As you read I am not a fan..but it sure looks like you had a blast! (This might be part of my problem..I did not fight the crowd, just got to enjoy the pictures!!) Looks like you and the mister had so much fun.
