A Pink Christmas Parade

This Saturday Waxahachie held its annual Christmas parade. This year the parade was dubbed A Pink Christmas in honor of breast cancer survivors. Everything was mostly pink.

Normally, I skip the Christmas parade affair probably because it just takes an enormous amount of energy to get double digit family members down to the parade, especially when many of them are disabled.

But, this year Taylor was in the parade representing his school. So, while I went to see Taylor, the experience presented itself with a wonderful opporturnity to showcase a Christmas parade in "small town" America.

Handsome Taylor is the young man on the far right.

I took so many pictures. Here are some of my favorites:

I'm not sure why, but I teared up when the high school marching band went by. They were playing "Oh Come All Ye Faithful".

Veterans of Foreign Wars

                            The Waxahachie Community Theatre Group

               These employees from a local restaurant could really "sang".

This gentleman from the Senior Citizen's Center was one of my favorites! He could pluck those banjo strings!!

These are descendants of men who served the Confederacy in the Civil War.

                  Waxahachie is famous for its old houses.......and old cars!!

A Texas parade means lots and lots and lots of horses!!

These ladies were having such a hard time managing these miniature horses. The horses were so stubborn and uncooperative. I think these ladies in pink got their exercise today!!
Support Our Troops!!

Yes!!! If you think that's a pink horse.....It is a pink horse!!! I'm wavering between being amazed and horrified!!
