'Tis the Season

We've been up to all the things the season brings:

Christmas tree shopping in the COLD.

This is not our tree, but it was time for me to take Caroline back to the car to warm up and our tree was way down on the other side of the lot.

Cookies with Santa.  (Or in his vicinity - Ellie would not go close to him, and clung like a koala when he entered the building.)  The girls in matching dresses in front of the tree are pretty cute if you ask me.

North Pole Party in matching jammies.

(The littlest elf stayed home, but was still dressed to coordinate.)

Still to come:
-Ellie's first school Holiday Program.  can.not.wait.  We might even bring our real (and never used) video camera.
-Southern Lights.  The big draw here is the petting zoo featuring actual reindeer and camels.  You can ride the camels.  I might be more excited about this than Ellie.  Who doesn't love reindeer?!?!
-Making a plate for Santa's cookies.  Not sure if we'll actually get around to this one.  The store probably isn't firing plates in time for Christmas anymore, but we might try.

I love everything about this post. It makes me feel all cozy and Christmas-y. I can't wait to see those little elves very soon!
