Getting back from the Bay Area, we had the perfect transition from Thanksgiving into the Christmas timeframe with SNOW! The day after getting home we got a slight dusting of snow, but it was enough for the boys to put on their ski clothes, make snowballs, and make a teeny tiny snowman.
To continue with the holiday spirit, we took the boys to see Santa. I can't believe they're now too big to sit on his lap. I almost don't believe it!
This year instead of Nutcracker (which I haven't actually seen in probably 25 years) we took the boys to see The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, which was awesome. The play was at the Paramount in Seattle and was a fancy event - the whole theater was dressed up which was fun. The boys didn't totally understand the entire play (i.e. "mommy, why was his head not screwed on just right?") but all in it was a great event.
