Weekend Scenes

For the first weekend in December we seemed to do all the Christmas things.  We started Friday by going into the city to stroll through the Christmas Village, have lunch and then go see the lights show at Macy's which Tatum loved.

Afterwards we went upstairs and walked through the Dicken's Village Display which Tatum found a little bit scary and there was no line for Santa so we just went ahead with that which did not go well, ha!

That night the three of us went out to dinner and then met some friends for a local tree lighting.  The kids had a blast running through the park and around all the lights.

Saturday morning we were out early and headed to the santa parade - so far parades seem to be a big favorite for Tatum.  Afterwards we met Santa, got balloon animals and cookies.

We went to lunch with friends after then to Color Me Mine to paint - I picked a little Christmas truck for Tatum and he seemed to enjoy painting it - for about five minutes then he was done but it was fun!

After a relaxing afternoon, naps and a break, Derek and I headed into the city for one of my favorite date nights of the year.  We had dinner at Ocean Prime then it was off to see The Nutcracker.  We grabbed a new nutcracker to add to our collection and then grabbed a drink at The Palm before heading home to watch the Big Ten Championship.

Sunday morning we got some things done around the house and let Tatum play with this little Santa craft, which I thought came with markers until we opened it but he loved the paint so it was fine.

Late morning we went over to our country club for Brunch with Santa.  Tatum had a great time eating with his grandparents, playing with his friends and doing Christmasy things.

To finish the weekend we went to our town's little tree lighting and then recovered from all the busy.  Looking forward to more events next weekend...
