A Trolley Square Christmas
This past weekend (December 1st to be exact) I had the pleasure of taking my 2 little sweethearts to the historic Trolley Square Mall to start the 'holiday tradition' ball rolling, so to speak. The holiday spirit was in the air - literally - even before we awakened that morning.... when we arose we were delighted to find a beautiful blanket of freshly fallen snow on the ground (and more coming throughout the day.) The kids enjoyed the morning frolicking in the snow while I volunteered at the Festival of Trees. Then, after lunch and naps, the REAL festivities kicked off with a visit with Santa and Mrs. Clause (more on that later), followed by milk and donuts (yum!). As we were walking through the mall Makea spotted Pottery Barn Kids so of course we had to stop for an hour to play (after all, what would Christmas be without a visit to the toystore?!). Then we headed outside for wassail and roasted chestnuts, and finished the evening off with a horse-drawn carriage ride. It was the perfect way to start this wonderful holiday season! MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!! I love this time of year!
