December Morning Walk Through Monona…

A Nice Seat in Any Weather…

  As the cold and snow of winter set in during December’s holiday rush take a few moments–it might be all one can take in sub-zero temps.–to enjoy a favorite seat.

Holiday Walk…

After the Big Meal on Thanksgiving there is nowhere better than Monona for family and friends to take a holiday walk. Enjoy the tradition.

Happy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving Parade Comes to Monona…

Every  Thanksgiving the Macy ‘Doll & Toy’ Parade comes through our home.  When our oldest son was very young this tradition was born.  All of his stuffed animals, trucks and trains–most important were the trains–paraded through our home.

     Over the years, as the rest of our clan were born, the parade grew in size.   Instead of trucks, trains and stuffed animals dolls began to appear for the yearly parade.

At times this was not always appreciated by everyone because it became a bit dangerous.  There was the year one of the elder guests tripped over the ‘parade’ on his way to get something from his coat.  His hand was cut, adding drama to the parade.  Another year a friend’s toddler almost swallowed a doll’s shoe.

       In the end everyone has a good memory of the parade as it appears each year because it welcomes the holiday season.  At the end of the parade comes the reward–the arrival of Santa.

Thanks…

As we enter the season for giving thanks: A big THANK YOU to Monona for having trucks out to collect brush and leaves so well and often this autumn.
