Christmas Festivities

We've had a bustling December so far - but between getting ready for baby, we're really filling up our days and weekends with fun Christmas activities.  

We started the month off celebrating my mom's birthday. We had a great dinner with my parents before they jetted off to Mexico with my sisters to really celebrate the best mom and Coco there literally ever was. 


Leo's school calendar for December is packed with fun activities - gingerbread house making, present making activities, etc. - but they kicked off the month with a birthday party for Jesus (catholic school perks ;) 

This past weekend our sweet friends had a perfect Christmas party for the adults and the kids. It was at 4pm, a dinner full of appitizers and desserts, and all of the kids picked each other's names for a gift exchange.


What could be better?

Then, on Monday afternoon, our local library had a special story time with Mrs. Claus. A bunch of my girlfriends and I got tickets weeks ago, and so all of the little guys were amped up for the big event! 


The library did a great job of having a few songs, a few stories that high school students acted out, and then some arts and crafts while we waited in line for our turn with Mrs. Claus.


Tonight we have our neighbors coming over to decorate gingerbread houses and then this Sunday we have brunch with Santa. I sort've felt like I wanted to get a good amount of the major Santa/Christmas activities in as early as possible in case baby decided to surprise us - and I'm so glad we've gotten a chance to really celebrate with just Leo.
