I’m taking a little vacation during the Thanksgiving holiday, so I decided we are going to start celebrating Christmas early!
It was quite the rainy weekend for us, so it was a perfect time to stay inside, listen to Christmas carols and decorate our Christmas tree.
One of the traditions I started when Cooper was old enough to help decorate, was to give my kids a new ornament each year the day we decorate the tree. They also get one in their stocking on Christmas morning. The new ornaments always reflect something they have been really into that past year. Cooper got Spiderman and Riley got Minnie Mouse.
I let the kids put most of the ornaments on themselves.
Think they’ll notice when I rearrange the ornaments?
Another Christmas tradition is visiting Disneyland. This was the first weekend of Christmas at the parks, so it was pretty crowded.
We watched the parade.
We posed in front of the giant Christmas tree in goofy hats.
And of course a Christmas visit would not be complete without a visit to Santa.
When Santa asked them what they wanted for Christmas this is what they said:
Riley: Minnie Mouse!
Cooper: An Ipad!
Go big or go home, right?
Black Friday Thanksgiving everyone! See you next week!!
