More fun from CNY…

Randy!!! (it’s his birthday so he gets top billing ~_^ )

…Dr. (or is it Chef?) Evil… one cool cat.

Tony has got to have the BEST smile I’ve ever seen. 100% pure Cheshire that grin… :D

when you really get down to it, these parades of ours are wonderful opportunities for us to reunite with members from years past.

Look at those beautiful smiles… our guard’s beautiful!

one tuckered out little minigade…

Mmmm… yummy dinner!!!

Olivia showing off her gymnastic prowess… hmm.. perhaps we should consider adding gymnysts to the show???

…more piccies soon! (just as soon as I figure out what the hecks up with my painfully coded tables. o.O )

Renegade for a Day…

I can’t begin to express what fun it was taking my eldest daughter with me to spend a day with the Renegades. For my little ones, spending time with the Renegades often means having to sacrifice time with them. It’s a huge sacrifice… I love spending time with the little tykes… so getting a rare opportunity to bring one of them along for a performance is a wonderful treat. My sweet girl did GREAT! She got to help carry the banner way up in the front of the corps, got scared by some fire crackers, and got to spend the evening at the post parade party with all the grownups. She said it was some of the most fun she’s had!

…and no…that’s not a giant blue bow (or anything else like it) on my head. LOL! ‘s a coat resting on a wagon in the background but with the darkness it certainly made me go ‘o.O’ LOL!

*scrapbooking Chinese New Year*

The best thing about parades, are the smiles. Along the route, the crowd’s smiling… then later, as we relax and enjoy an evening doing what we all love to do (performing), we share in the laughter and enjoyment of the magic we’ve created…

This is just one of the many many pictures taken by myself and another intreped Renegade. :D As time permits… I’ll post more of them so that one and all may share in the fun we all had at the Post Chinese New Year party. LOL… great times!
