I usually only over-plan for Halloween (Pumpkin Patches | Fall Festival | Zoo Boo | ArBOOretum | Ren Fest). Thanksgiving and Christmas time are usually more low-key for us. We still have plenty of fun though.
Christmas Party at Daddy’s Work
Oh, THIS year? She is cool with it all.
These elves were around to talk with the kids while they were waiting in line.
Grace had a LOT to say.
We HAD to get her face painted (which she had a reaction to, though was fine) and a balloon animal.
Church Christmas Party
Our church hosted their annual holiday party. I provided four types of cookies (because who only bakes ONE?) and two of the kids’ craft projects, so we felt that we should attend.
Santa visit #2 (in the same weekend)
“Mommy, I’m holding his hand.”
“No, Mommy, I want to do it ALL by myself.” And she did.
Mrs. Claus Gingerbread Workshop
“Mommy, I will help you color yours.”
“Ho ho ho! I’m Santa Gracie!”
