This past weekend my family and I had the pleasure to attend and be in the Donelson-Hermitage Christmas Parade. The soccer league that my husband and I both volunteer coach built a unique float related to soccer and they nominated us to dress up as The Grinch and Cindy Lou Who. This was so much fun for us and there are plenty of parades coming up this weekend. I would highly suggest any of these Christmas parades in Nashville for families to attend and share the joy of Christmas with your wonderful children.
