Christmas Light Parade '15

Last night was our little town's Christmas Miracles & Magic Light Parade.
Every year we go all out on a float and it's A LOT of work, time and money.  It seems that always the same few employees help with the event but this year our main guy {resident light expert, aka Clark Griswold} was going to be out prior to the parade for an extended period of time so we knew we had to keep things simple.  We decided to ask a fellow dealership if we could borrow their very cool converted John Deere Model B pedal tractor. 
It was a hit!  We didn't want to put lights on the machine {since it was borrowed} and opted to place more lights on our peddlers.  It's hard to see in pictures but they had battery operated lights wrapped around their shirts
My coworkers {and hubby} were great sports!
Here's Clark Griswold Santa himself.

The little cowboys elves rode with Angie, Keith and me in a Gator behind the tractor.  We were a safety vehicle in case our peddlers needed pulling because from what I hear, the bike is HARD to peddle :)
What a crew?!

Such a cute elf!
Needless to say, we had a blast!!
And best of all, we took home FIRST PLACE in commercial floats!!
I LOVE this picture.  Three of my favorites.
It's not everyday we get to dress up as a family of elves... I kind of loved it!!  Thank you Miracles and Magic Christmas Parade.


Not the best video... but you have to see the bike in pedal tractor in motion.
