Getting Into the Holiday Spirit

Since Thanksgiving, we have been getting into the holiday spirit around here by participating in different activities with the kids. It has been a welcome change to some of the other things we have been dealing with lately (like court) that have been very stressful. There is nothing like seeing the joy of Christmas through the eyes of the kids. We started with a visit to Sesame Place which has quickly become one of the kids' favorite places.

On Saturday after Thanksgiving, Colin's Karate school hosted Santa and they were so excited when he walked in the door. Cody is not a fan right now and as you will see in the family picture, basically had one eye on him the whole time to make sure he wasn't too close.

We decided that instead of waiting until Christmas Eve and Christmas, we would break out the Christmas pajamas and have reasons to wear them now. I LOVE the kids in holiday pjs!

This past weekend, we finished our holiday decorating with the Christmas tree. There's nothing like the glow of the Christmas tree!

Finally, on Sunday, we participated in the Special Olympics NJ Jingle All the Way, an event that raises money for Special Olympics.

It is always a fun event!

I can't wait for all that is still yet to come!
