Christmas Parade

Since moving to Raleigh, we've been going to the annual Christmas parade. And every year while watching the parade, we dream of going to NYC to the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade. One day we will make it, but until then, here is Raleigh's parade.

Betty or Wilma? Betty has always been my favorite.

One of Raleigh's big floats. They had a hard time keeping him in the air.

After the first hour or so, the boys were complaining of the cold. We didn't make it to see Santa at the end. We didn't make it last year either.

Aww! I want to see a parade like that one!! If yall wanted to see Santa, all yall had to do was come to Abilene! You could see him at the end of the parade twice in 20 minutes!! Lol!! Blink and it's over, ya missed it!!

See him going down Pine and then walk over to N. 1st and see him going back to where he came from!! Haha! Cant beat that!
