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.
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.
