Holiday Kick-Off

Check out the first snow! (Liana left)
We had a fabulous holiday season kick-off weekend around here! Friday, I spent the day bargain hunting with my Bjorn's sister and mom (starting at 8am, after a civilized night's sleep!) and we had so much fun! I've hardly ever spent the whole day away "playing" since the girls were born, and we had such a great time while snagging some good bargains AND getting virtually my whole Christmas shopping done in one weekend! While I was out, Bjorn spent the day ringing in the season at home with the girls. He took them to a really fun and kid-friendly tree farm, where they cut our tree, visited the petting zoo and went for a sleigh-ride! We had a fun family pizza dinner at home with Bjorn's sister's family and his parents that night, and after everybody left, the girls and I decorated the Christmas tree. We finished decorating the house after I taught a couple of classes on Saturday morning, and the girls helped me bake our first batch of Christmas cookies. That evening, I met a couple of girlfriends for dinner and the new "Bond" movie. I really couldn't think of a better way to spend a weekend :)! As you can see from the pictures, we had our first real snow fall on Thanksgiving Day, and the girls were absolutely delighted. They are convinced that Santa will literally come any moment now - which might make for a long 4 weeks leading up to Christmas, but it's hard not to get excited about Christmas yourself when you are around them :)



Light are up AND they found their stockings :)!
