Leavenworth 2011

We enjoyed yet another wondeful year in Leavenworth for their beautiful town lighting celebration. We stayed at a hotel in town next to the hotel we stayed in the first year we visited for the lighting festival. Being close is always a treat and makes it very easy with young kids to move back and forth to the hotel as needed!

The weekend was filled with sledding on the town hill, some snow play, good company, yummy food and brew, beautiful holiday lights, Santa, a living nativity, a little lantern parade and holiday shopping. Something for everyone!

Ice Skating Fun

A fun seasonal treat for Holly was trying out Ice Skating this year. Our town hosted a small, kid friendly 'ice' rink that was actually waxed matts - perfect for a child who has never done this before. We let her watch a bit to decide, she was all for it so Bryan took her out and taught her what to do. After a few laps around with Daddy she went on her own and just took off! Holly loved doing this! We might take her to a neighboring town soon to try out a real ice rink!

While Holly skated Hudson & I enjoyed some park time just outside!

Camp Fire Club

Yesterday Holly's Camp Fire Club was in the local Santa Parade, her second year! They all had a great, chilly time on the little float waving to everyone. It was a fun activity that really adds to some holiday joy!

Oh Christmas Tree!

This past weekend we got the house all decorated for Christmas - this was Hudson's first year helping. He adores the pretty tree and shares with me daily he thinks it is sweet!!! Holly also had a great time helping, she did a lot this year!  The house is feeling cozy and bright right now, such a nice feeling!
