Christmas Inflatable Parade Comes to Town!


SmugMug Daily Link

Donnie worked very hard yesterday to make sure my (and the boys) Christmas will be merry.  I have a big set of inflatables that usually gets added to each year in the after Christmas sale.  We're up to quite a few now (also at Halloween). Usually I put them up.  They aren't too hard. But this year I can't bend down and twist like that, so Donnie agreed to do them for me.  What a guy!  Not only did he put all of them up, he posed without a fuss after each one too adding some humor to the shots.  Usually I get the kids to pose by each one.  Don't worry, I'll get pics of them sometime over the holiday season too.  I can't wait to see their faces light up this afternoon when they come home and see that they've been put up while they were away.

Here's my version of watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade.  Donnie had the inflatable up in the air to position it just right, and I thought of my friend Betsy's parade shots.

Donnie is definitely not a Grinch!  Look at that arm-in-arm pose:-)

Mr. Conductor was busy today on the rails overseeing Thomas the Tank Engine.  Sir Topham Hat would have been proud!

What a sense of humor!

Blaze (Blazie) got all hot to trot to go outside one of the times I came in the house for something, so I leashed her up to come sit by us outside.  She's such a house dog spending her time in a few favorite spots in the house most of the day including on the couch.  She sits on the floor beside wherever I'm at my computer and sleeps on a small rug in the boys room each night.  She begs us and visitors for biscuits whenever we're near her jar in the kitchen and likes 3 shorts walks a day.  At 12, she's slowing down a bit, but she still has most of her spunk.  She's a hard pooch to take pictures of because of her dark fur and apparent fear of my camera, so I was excited to get this shot yesterday of my sweet girl:

She kept walking toward me as I tried to shoot.  In most of the shots her head was turned away.  Here she's not smiling because she sees the camera.  Still, her fur is lit up nice, no flash eyes, and she's looking at me so I'm pretty happy.  The shot shows all the lovely variations and beauty in her auburn colored fur.
