I LOVE the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade.  Having the parade on TV, the smell of turkey pouring out of the oven, putting the green been casserole together, and trying to keep the kids out of the black olives until the guests arrive...that's one of the best moments of the year for me.

Have you seen the parade lineup?  It's looking good.

I wonder how cold it will be in New York City Thursday morning?  The web says Partly Sunny and 41 in NYC.  Does that mean Nick Jonas will have to keep his shirt on? Please, someone get that boy a space heater so he can show us the washboard abs! He is dessert.  Who needs pumpkin pie.

So Nik Jonas will be part of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.  Also Meghan Trainor, Cirque du Soleil, Hilary Duff, Becky G, Lucy Hale, Sandra Lee from Food Network, and probably singing that Frozen theme song, Idina Menzel.  The girls and I will be belting out "Let it Gooooooo, Let it Goooo......." while making a total mess with the potato peels and chasing down wayward cranberries that are rolling across the kitchen floor.  Let the mess go Mama.

The theme for the parade is "teamwork," and the Little League champs get to kick it off. Philadelphia's Taney Dragons are an amazing team, and they had the first female pitcher to throw a shutout this year.  Mo'ne Davis and the boys will be lead the parade through the streets of NYC.

It will be on at 9am Thursday on NBC.  Can't wait!
