Our favorite time of the year is here. The holiday season makes me so happy. For one, my little princess will be turning 4 next week. Her birthday like mine is a holiday for us. Plus Thanksgiving and Christmas. This year I’ll be teaching Z about Kwanzaa and Hanukkah (her grandfather is of Jewish descent). So yes, the next few weeks will be filled with decorating, presents, Christmas carols and movies. I hope Z is ready for “A Christmas Story” because it’s my favorite holiday movie ever.
We kicked off this year’s holiday activities with a visit to the Stone Mountain Park Christmas celebration. We attempted the event last year but a fussy toddler, chilly temperatures, and a tired mama cut the night short. This year we actually made it to the end and got to see the Snow Angel Snowfall finale. The fireworks were a bit much for Zoe was Baby E was in awe (or shock) and made it through without one tear.
Santa and Mrs. Claus were a joy as always. We came home with a great pic of the kids with Santa. Baby E spent some time with Mrs. Claus too and gave her a big “Bye Bye” before we left. Cookie making was a big hit for Z.
Take a ride on the Singalong Train while listening to the story of the first Christmas and enjoying carols. The Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer in 4D show is fun and interactive for everyone. And don’t forget to take a pic with Rudolph and Bumble. You will also catch them dancing and greeting friends in the nightly Christmas parade too. Take in all the lights and don’t forget to grab a pic under the mistletoe.
This is us under the mistletoe. Where is it you ask? The pic above, lol. But why aren’t my kids looking???
The kids had a blast. Their last treat of the night were the smores cones. As you can see they sugar intake made for a funny pic.
And then it was time to go because Baby E was so tired. Can you tell?
This week school is out and lots of people have family in town. Make Stone Mountain Park Christmas a part of your Thanksgiving weekend. Get tickets and find out about Snow Mountain too. Snowtubing is Georgia is a real thing says this NYC girl.
