Welcome Christmas!

I love the Christmas Season:  the colors, sounds, smells... Everything!  Well, I take that back, there are some things that irritate me: the hustle and bustle, the stress of gifts for the kids... But outside of these few items, Christmas really is magical.  This year Scott and I are really focusing on teaching the boys that Christmas is about more than gifts so we were really excited to start the season with the boys and starting a few new traditions.

Saturday was Small Business Saturday and we are pretty lucky to be surrounded by some cute, downtown areas to peruse and enjoy.  Since the weather cooperated, we spent Saturday morning in St. Peter, checking out holiday displays and various antique shops.  So fun to see the shops "decked out" and hearing the Christmas music.  We even ran into Santa who seemed to be doing the same thing!

After some sunshine and fresh air, we headed home  for lunch and naps so we could rest up for evening festivities!

We closed the night at the Kiwanis Light Display!  This was our first time there, but not our last!!! This will definitely be a Holiday tradition in years to come!  Beautifully done and all volunteers were so nice.

All bundled up and ready to go!
