Better than a dog on your head!

Yesterday, while I was still sound asleep, Mom snuck out of the apartment at 5:50 am to go be a clown in the 83rd Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade! It was her 7th time marching in the parade and she said it was the best time ever!

She was a Lilypad with the Safari Clowns, right behind the Watering Can float with Mitchell Musso from Hannah Montana. If you look carefully, you could have seen her dancing around in the background while he sang! Then they had a closeup of Mom and her pals, but it was as they were going to commercial so there's a big logo over them.

Anyhow, here she is with a Frog on her head! Only appropriate that Kermit is in the background!

And here she is with her friend Susan, waiting for the parade to begin.

We're got loads of photos of "behind the scenes" Parade stuff that we'll post over the weekend. In the meantime, enjoy these Thanksgiving leftover!

We have heard about Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade - now we know someone who has been in the 83rd!
We thought your mom looked very cool as a lily pad with a frog on her head.
Not everyone could carry that off!

Mom looked and looked for your mom. She never saw her, now we know why! We hope your Thanksgiving was a good one. Mom says the 1st of each holidays are the hardest. So she says to give your mom a huge hug for her. We had mac and cheese. Not bad!

Norwood will just love those lilypad hoppers. Your Mom and her friend look great. We always watch the parade. Jake and Fergi are correct - this year's was just wonderful. And we bet your Mom being there had a lot to do with it.

Hi Petey
What an interesting looking parade. But are you not a little concerned that you Mom has taken to clowning around with a FROG on her head! And apparently enjoying herself very much. I mean, what sort of a message does that give out???
Just a little worried, here in Aberdeen.
Cheers, H.
The only frog round here is the one in my throat, from all the barking I did at those kennels last week...

Eric said...

Mom looks all smiley and happy, clowning around. But what's that on Mom's head, a froggie?? Now I'm confused. I always thought it was the Cat on the Hat??? Can't wait to see the outake photo's.

Wiry loves and kissies Eric xxx

Linda said...

Oh my dawgness, your Mama looks so adorable!! How cool to be in the parade. Is she wearing one of the bullfrogs from our ponds??? hehehehe!

Sophie Brador said...

How cool is that?!!! I wish I had known. I would have watched that parade on the tv set and barked at your mom. I think you should have gone too, Petey. You would have made a great frog and you could have sat on your mom's head all day.
