Fiesta Of Lights Parade Phoenix

Dec 4 2011

Last night we got our winter coats, hat and mittens out to drive 40 miles in the rain to see a Christmas parade.  In MN it would have been snow, so guess we are thankful it wasn’t 20 below zero.

It’s not all sunshine and sunsets down here in the desert.  Not sure what the total rain fall was but sure it was over an inch.  This was not one of those nice light warm rains, I know I saw some flurries mixed in with the rain.

Up until the last few days we have had perfect weather in the 70s low 80s and lots of sunshine.

We had a nice thanksgiving with friends here in the park, with a turkey and all the trimmings.

Floats were made from cars to semis with many tractors.

We may have been popsicles when we got home, but it sure was fun.  Love a parade.

What's Christmas without the snow? Better Snow than rain in my book! Where's the photo of your Christmas tree?
