My Christmas Weekend

Last weekend was a blur of Christmas festivities! Friday night we went to a Christmas party where we hung out with friends to the sounds of live music being sung by the fire (as opposed to songs being sung by a choir!); drinks around the bar (hot chocolate and champagne with pomegranate seeds splashed on top); lots of great foodie things like sushi boats, chicken and beef kabobs over rice served in martini glasses; decorated gingerbread cookies; and a brisk walk to see all the lights and decorations on Christmas Tree Lane. After this we headed up to River Park to see the Lego window display (located between Macy's and Edward's Theater) in the theme of Santa's Workshop. Really amazing! Saturday we attended a local artist's open house where we purchased some holiday treasures. Then in the early evening we went a-hunting for our Christmas tree. My husband and I always take a photo of us surrounded by the Christmas trees. Hiding amongst the trees is a favorite activity of my boys. Two lots and two cups of hot cocoa later we had ourselves a beautiful Noble strapped to the top of our PT Cruiser. Sunday we spent the day decorating our home and our tree. The whole house is fragrant with the scent of pine. I love it! By evening, we were all sitting on our cozy couches admiring our Christmas surroundings. Hmmm..........so nice!This picture of our tree looks a little 'wonky' here, but in the dark with all the twinkling lights it is beautiful!
