You’d think by the time I celebrate my 27th Christmas, I might have done it all.
Fortunately, I haven’t.
This year especially, I’ve been blessed to experience the Christmas season in so many new ways. As Christmas winds down to its finale, I’d like to share some of my life’s December highlights with you-
For the first time, Matt and I attended the Downtown Neenah Christmas event. There were live mannequins in every store window, holiday music pumping outdoors, carolers, and tons of hustle bustle. A special date indeed.
Turns out Maple is quite the Christmas crafter. She works mostly in glue and glitter and takes her art very seriously.
The introduction of the Advent Calendar tradition has added exciting surprises (and father/daughter accessories) to each day this month.
Riding a horse pulled sleigh through Green Bay’s botanical garden’s Festival of Lights was pretty magical for Maple, Reetz, and I. It would have been more magical under a blanket of snow, but hey…
I attended my first elementary school Christmas concert since I graduated the sixth grade. It was much cuter than I remember. Good job Isabel and Dominick!
With each passing year, I appreciate my family even more. Christmas weekend in the northwoods was wonderful.
We didn’t only get to visit with Santa this year- We met the Grinch too!
The only thing that would have made Christmas Lights Night more amazing would have been snow.
We Reetzs attended our first Ugly Christmas Sweater party. It was a fun time for all, thanks to our dear friends, The Becks!
My Oh My! Of all the fabulous Christmas firsts of 2011, my favorite is, of course, this little guy.
