First December Weekend

 Our first December weekend has been a fun one!  On Friday night, we went with some friends to a local "escape room" (and we escaped!!).  Yesterday, we spent the day at the Museum of Science & Industry.  I had never been at Christmas time, and it was so fun to see all of the beautiful trees and decorations!  And today, we got our first snow of the season.  And it is a big one...still coming down!

Christmas Traditions

 Tradition: A Costco tree...a bit different from our former tradition of going to William's Tree Farm, but getting our tree from Costco has become our new tradition!

Tradition: Decorating the tree and each kiddo choosing a new ornament for that year...they love opening their personal ornament bins every year and looking through the ones they picked for prior Christmases!




 Tradition: Decking the Halls


Wreath I bought from a local Boy Scout...reminds me of my mom, who always bought Christmas wreaths from boy scouts!
I tried to get crafty with the branches we cut from the bottom of the tree.
 Tradition: Hot chocolate & The Very First Noel

New Tradition: Sleepover in the living room...Norah ended up requesting her bed. ;)

Tradition: St. Charles Electric Parade

Sleigh Ride!

 Shenanigans while waiting for the parade to start...

Jennie McCarthy & Donnie Wahlberg...Grand Marshals!
