This past weekend, the Sock Monkeys, my sister, daughter and I attended the annual Adolphus Childrens Christmas Parade in Downtown Dallas.  It's an annual tradition that started for our family when my kids were young.  Now, we take the grandkids and nephews. Christmas Parade 2011

Each year, there are a few different floats and groups. Yes, that's Elmo holding his goldfish! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

But this year takes the cake!    

                                                              

There were Llamas marching in Christmas outfits!

How cute is THAT?!  I bet Liz Wallace doesn't have llamas in her neighborhood! 

 

Every 1st Saturday of December, you can create memories your family will never forget at the Dallas Christmas Parade.  It begins at the corner of Austin and Commerce, and goes East on Commerce.  Sometimes, the weather is better than others, but our kids continue to love it and talk about it through the years.  It's an event worth attending!

 

As always, if you need help with Real Estate needs in the Dallas area feel free to give me a call or send a note.  I'm happy to help!

Brrrrrr!...it looks like it was cold there...jackets and all. The llamas are unique; nice picture of them all dressed up for Christmas. The kids all looked warm and comfortable with their monkey hats! :)...Wayne

The only llama I  ever came in contact with was in the Bronx Zoo and it spit at me.  Must have thought I was going to put it in Christmas p.j.s.  A llama would get beat up in the Bronx if it wore Christmas garb. 

Your girls are stunning.

Fun! My wife reminded me that it was coming up, but I totally forgot. We attended only once. It was cold, but the kids had a lot of fun.

Tammy - the annual Adolphus Children's Christmas Parade looks like so much fun and that is one huge Elmo! I just read Liz's comment and can't stop laughing - so funny! Llamas are known for spitting!
