Christmas Countdown

I really do love this time of year. There is something about the Christmas season that is so magical. Charlotte is old enough now to be excited about Christmas, and that makes it even more special. Over the past few weeks, we have been doing a few holiday-related activities- going to Christmas parties, visiting with family, baking, making gingerbread houses, and going to the Nutcracker. Here are some highlights:

We are so lucky to have such wonderful family and friends with whom to enjoy this holiday season. It is shaping up to be the best Christmas yet! And there are still more memories to be made- we are visiting the Christmas Market in the Distillery District today to see Santa. Christmastime with little kids- it doesn’t get much better than this.
