Getting Ready for Christmas

Christmas has come and gone, but it is always nice to look back and share how we spent those days.
The Saturday before Christmas was action packed!

1. Rudolph
We transformed our car into a reindeer, and Toyota became known as Rudolph for the next 2 weeks.

2. The Tree
While mommy stayed at home getting the house ready for Christmas, we ventured off to the local 100 Foot Christmas Tree.

We managed to take a couple of nice shots. Even managed to visit the Nativity scene, climb past the ropes and greet the Baby Jesus.

We also saw the man in red...

Before venturing inside the tree...

The tree is over 100 feet tall

3. Lunch
Is there anywhere better for lunch in terms of value for lunch than Costco? $1.50 for a giant hot dog and soda with free refills!

4. Christmas Lights
We rounded off the day with a trip to see the Christmas lights from the car. 


The Irishman was given the task of blogging about the lead up to Christmas. He had most of the pictures for those events on his phone. I thought that would be 2 blog posts, but it is looking like it might be 4 or 5! The only thing I was going to add to this post was that my grandmother came with us to the lights. Sean was SO impressed that 'B' was in our car. He is still talking about it!

Wow, what fun! I was wondering where they found a 100' tree until i say you inside of it. That must have taken forever to put it together! Amazing. Love the pics of visiting baby Jesus at the nativity, that looks like something my kids would do. And the Christmas lights look beautiful. I love Christmas lights!
