Every year, I watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. I know it's cheesy and I really could do without Matt Lauer and the rest of the Today show crew hosting it, but for some reason, cheesiness rules on Thanksgiving morning. I cannot think of a better way to lead up to a day of eating a bunch of food with friends and family. My mom and sisters call to inform each other about which next broadway show tune will next be performed, or to make sure we don't miss a really good balloon sighting.
This year, I found out there will be a Hello Kitty balloon, and I'm super excited! I love Hello Kitty. She's the best ever.
If you want to see a preview of the new balloons, check out this video. The Shrek balloon scares me. I don't know why, but I think that Shrek is really frightening. Maybe it's because I thought the movie was supposed to be funny and it just made me cry. But that Sesame Street character is super cute (and purple!).
Did I mention that I'm a dork?
