'Tis the Season to be Jolly, and Jolly is definitely what we are. This year we have done more Christmassy things than ever before and I am loving it! I think a few of the things we have done this year should become new Christmas traditions for us. I do have to mention though, that this is the first Christmas for us where we haven't been taking finals, or horribly sick and pregnant, so I guess that makes Christmas that much more fun, and much easier to go out and do fun things.
^^A few weeks ago we went to the Christmas Tree Lighting at the Gateway. It was pretty chilly, but overall a fun way to get ready for Christmas, since it was the first Christmassy thing we did this year.^^
^^Reagan met Santa. She doesn't really have any stranger danger yet. She's happy with just about everyone, including the jolly old elf himself. She does kind of look a bit freaked out in this picture, but she didn't scream or cry at all.^^
^^And then later that day we went to the Festival of Trees. I actually got to go to the Festival of Trees twice this year. I had never been before this year, and I definitely enjoyed it.^^
^^We made Gingerbread houses with friends and had a great time! And I'm not sure if I've ever really made a gingerbread house before, so I'm really glad we did. It might have to be a new tradition.^^
^^And tonight we saw Farley Family Christmas. It was my third time, and Jordan's fifth. We laughed our heads off as usual.^^
