Happy Holidays

If you are like me, you are still in shock knowing that it is already December and Christmas is rapidly approaching and this year is coming to an end.

We all do things to bring on the holiday spirit. We decorate our homes, we make our favorite traditional treats, we go overboard shopping on Black Friday.

This year, we started a new tradition to welcome the holidays, one that hopefully we will be able to enjoy year after year.

Ever been to Stone Mountain Christmas? It is quite the festive treat. I have been wanting to go year after year since we have lived here, and we finally made the time to go, and we are so glad we did. It was so delightful and the kids actually enjoyed themselves and we spent the whole day together being happy. It was an early Christmas miracle!

The whole park was covered in Christmas lights,

Madilyn and Colin helped Santa's elves sing and dance as they tracked his progress around the world on Christmas Eve

And Philip's favorite part was when the flying angel came and made it snow.

The weather was perfect. Cold enough that it felt like Christmas-time, but not so cold that we couldn't stand to be out there.

And just to prove that I was there . . .

Thanks Stone Mountain, for a great holiday treat!
