I'm a huge fan of holiday decorating. Halloween, Christmas, 4th of July and Valentine's Day rank right up there as a few of my favorites. But Mother's Day? The thought never occurred to me that this could be a holiday ripe for festive decor.

A house around the corner from us clearly has a vision for this holiday that many others, myself included, may never have considered. Alex snapped this photo yesterday when we were out for a walk. 

Yep, you're seeing it right. Two llamas (or alpacas?), dressed up as a husband and wife duo, with the female llama sporting a baby as her accessory for mother's day. And we would be remiss without mentioning that Mr. Lllama is rockin' an old-timey handlebar mustache, complete with a top hat. Hilarious, and yet slightly disturbing all wrapped into one.

These llamas are actually a permanent fixture in the front window of this home. They get dressed up for special occasions year-round, but this has to be one of the most interesting and "come to a screeching halt" llama displays yet.

Any memorable holiday decor that you're dying to share? What about obscure holidays that are "must celebrates" in your household? In the meantime, we can't wait to see what the llamas will be doing next.

We can't wait to post llama follow-ups. I'm a little apprehensive though about what they'll do for Labor Day. ;-)
