Walking in a Winter Wonderland

After much anticipation we received about 4 inches of snow today. It is definitely the most snow I have seen since moving here. Ellie's Christmas Program at preschool was canceled today. Upon hearing that Ellie ran to her room, leaped onto her bed with a huge frown on her face and then put her covers over her head. She was pretty upset about that.
But I think playing out in the snow today made up for it :)

The Next Sasha Cohen...

Ok maybe not. But we had fun :) We went half way around the small rink and Ellie said, "Ok I'm done." But by the time we finished that lap she was just getting warmed up. I had to beg her to be done after an hour of skating.

Garden d'Lights

We checked out the Garden d'lights display this weekend. They seem to outdo themselves every year. It is pretty unbelievable what they come up with. So beautiful!

Gingerbread House

We decorated the Gingerbread House this weekend. Always a fun tradition. Somehow a lot of the candy is already missing... hmm I wonder who could be eating it?

Day after Thanksgiving Traditions....

First stop.... Macy's Day Holiday Parade. I have never seen a little girl so excited to see gingerbread and snowmen! It was adorable to see Ellie's excitement this year for the parade. Of course she loved the candy canes that they threw out to the crowd as well :)
Our next stop was the Gingerbread Village display at the Sheraton. This year's theme was super heroes. This was the one we voted for.
Next up was the Festival of Trees. This was Ellie's favorite.
Our final stop, before heading to Pike's Place for lunch, was the Teddy Bear Suite. A suite full of Teddy Bears and Christmas decorations. Ellie found a comfy place to rest for a little while after a busy morning.
