Bring On The CLOWNS

I work for a wonderful airline that was one of the
sponsors for our Oakland Holiday Parade last Saturday.
Myself and some of my family participated in this years parade.
and yes we were allllll CLOWNS...
My grandson Christian is being made up....

He made a great clown.....
he was wonderful shaking hands with all the
children along the 2 mile route....

my grand daughter Nevaeh...she is only 2
and took this make up thing very seriously...

she was a great little clown....
until nape time took over. Grandpa
pushed her in her stroller.....
My little clown slept the whole parade...
and of course Me.....
kinda strange make up for a clown...

and here we all are ready for the parade....
my daughter Kera on the far right is
Mommy to Christian and Nevaeh....

we had a before party in the VIP room....
that day everyone was a VIP....
here we are with the Oakland Warrior Cheerleaders.....
Hubby and I with Miss California....
she was just as sweet as she was pretty.....

and who can forget Bob McGrath of Sesame Street....
a very sweet man.....
all of my children grew up watching him on TV.....

our group clown picture....kinda dark...
but maybe that's a good thing.....

Our float...our cute little T J LUV.....
well as you can see we all made it the 2 miles of
walking, dancing, waving and lots of hugs and smiles
we were tired......
back at my home we tried to blend in
with the Christmas decorations.....
can you pick out the clowns?????
We made another day of memories.....
Happy Holidays!!

************************************
We are off to Disneyland for our Christmas visit..
flying out in the morning will return on Thursday...
Have a wonderful week....
Hugs,
Mo :-)

Have a blast celebrating my birthday at Disneyland tomorrow, while I am at work. Be sure to let me know what you did for my birthday. Oh and don't forget to take pictures. Well, you might not see this before you leave so I hope you remembered your camera.

Oh how fun! I'm sure you will have a blast! Wish I would have known I would have made plans to meet you there. I'm only a few minutes away from there.

Enjoy your trip! I'm sure you will.

Hi Mo, That's what it's all about--making memories, and all of you will remember this for the rest of your lives, --what fun and all the preparation and then to end it with Disney! WOW! That's great. My family (28 in all) are headed to DisneyWorld on Jan 15th. I can't wait! So much fun, I can hardly stand it! Have a great time. Oh, and the costumes were beautiful.

You certainly have a very good and happy life. It shows all over your face with or without paint!
