I love Christmas. All the lights and packages make me giddy as can be. The city we live in decorates the main street with beautiful lights, and Santa’s Workshop.
Last Thursday, a friend and I took the kids downtown for the Jingle Mingle event. HJ and I arrived a little early and snuck into a few shops. The sidewalks were decorated with lanterns, and each of the shops had treats and adult beverages to enjoy.
We were 3rd in line to see the big man, and thank goodness, because the line quickly became out of control.
I always think the little workshop looks like something out of a Dr. Seuss book…
When the kids were done talking to Santa, they had to climb a ladder and do down a twisty slide to leave the workshop. HJ did not want to partake in it until he went outside and saw what the fuss was about.
The next night, HJ’s Elf on a Shelf surprised him with a note.
I love seeing how excited HJ is for Christmas this year. How he talks about Santa (and asked a man at Wal-Mart if he was Santa…), and randomly bursts into Jingle Bells.
How have you been enjoying the holiday season?
