Holiday Spirit

We’ve had such a fun couple of days celebrating the first weekend of December with some fun Christmasy activities! It really started on Wednesday when Ryan swung by Walmart on his way home and picked up a Christmas tree for us (klassy, I know). We hauled out the Christmas bins and I did some decorating. Emmett handed each ornament to me to put on the tree and was remarkably gentle! 

On Thursday night we went to our little Town of James Island tree lighting and let up with our friends Kristen and David and their little boy River.

Emmett tried (and loved) his first marshmallows…

And Miles was wide-eyed the whole time looking at all of the lights.

On Friday night I introduced Emmett to the pure Christmas joy of baking sugar cookies! I mistakingly also introduced him to the deliciousness of eating cookie dough which resulted in a meltdown when I told him he couldn’t eat anymore of it…

He recovered though and had a great time decorating the cookies with sprinkles/eating handfuls of sprinkles! Haha!

On Saturday morning Auntie Becca came with us to Breakfast with Santa where we got these epic pictures…

And then last but it least, yesterday we went downtown to the Charleston Christmas Parade! It’s pretty much my favorite parade I’ve ever been to. It’s about 2 hours long and is filled with a lot of local kids, cute dogs and marching bands. It took Emmett a little while to warm up to the parade but before we knew it, he was pointing and yelling with excitement and flirting with a news anchor on one of the floats!

Such a fun start to the holiday season!
