What a busy month it has been here in K House! We have done so many fun holiday activities. My heart is full. The season started off with our annual tradition of cutting down our Christmas tree. We always have so much fun doing this. The boys really get a kick out of going to the farm, picking the perfect tree, and chopping it down. The weather this year was perfect!
My mom bakes cookies and candy with all of the grand kids every year. This year she wanted to try something different. We decided to do a cookies and canvas class. It was so much fun. The kids and the adults had such a great a time. I really want to go back and do an adult class now.
We headed to Cincinnati for the Festival of Lights. It was so beautiful. The last time I had been was probably 12 years ago. It was snowing and it was magical. That night is probably my favorite memory this holiday season thus far. The Zoo really knows how to put on a great Christmas display!
On our way back from Cincinnati we made a stop in Connersville, IN where we caught a train to the North Pole. You may have heard of it…the Polar Express! It was so cute and such a fun ride. The boys each had their golden tickets punched by the conductor. We sipped hot chocolate (never ever let it cool!) and picked up Santa. He gave each of the kids a sleigh bell.
And of course our holiday season would not be complete without a trip to Sullivan’s. We absolutely love this little gem. We discovered it last year and it will be on our list for years to come. The real Santa is here! Need I say more?!
We also visited the Indiana Chinese Lantern Festival. Did I mention I am now writing for Indy’s Child Magazine online?! It was my first assignment. The festival deserves a post of it’s own. So stay tuned. But I will leave you with a teaser picture!
