25 Days of Christmas: Day 5

The Santa Clause movies are some of my favorite Christmas movies! The 2nd movie is my favorite, so it bums me out that really only the first and third in the series are showed on TV!

When I saw this book at 2nd and Charles a few months ago, I had to have it! Tonight's book: The Escape Clause: A Very Merry Frostmas.  And poor little Marshall is half asleep, drinking his bottle.

25 Days of Christmas: Days 1-4

I started getting bummed out that we missed Day 1, Day 2 and Day 3 of this, but you know what? Life happens. We've been so busy lately just had Marshall's first birthday, so that's where our priorities have been. But have no fear, we're back for another round of 25 Days of Christmas!

If you've missed my past editions of 25 Days of Christmas, here's what I've done in the past, and the links to the first post of each series if you wanted to read through:

2009--different Christmasy things done each day. You can start with the first post here.
2010--favorite Christmas songs. You can start with the first post here.
2011--favorite Christmas ornaments. You can start with the first post here.
2012--favorite Christmas movies. You can start with the first post here.
2013--different Christmas cookies/treats each day. You can start with the first post here.
2014--different Christmasy things done each day. You can start with the first post here.
2015--sorry, was preoccupied December 2015 ;)

So now, here’s what we’re doing for 2016’s 25 Days of Christmas: 25+ Christmas books!! I say 25+ because let's be honest, I just love Christmas too much and have tons of Christmas books myself and that I've bought for Marshall, haha. Tonight, we caught up on the past few days of missed reading, but we're back on track now! We read:

1. The Elf on the Shelf - A Christmas Tradition Marshall's elf is sitting out watching him every day :)
2. Winnie the Pooh - The Sweetest Christmas
3. Toy Story - Woody's White Christmas
4. Paw Patrol - The Pups Save Christmas Marshall received this for his birthday yesterday, so it was only appropriate to add it to our book line up!

Stony Point Christmas Tree Lighting

Anyone else feel like the month of November has just FLOWN by?! I can't believe Thanksgiving is next week!

I'm so ready to start putting up Christmas decorations, though!! Maybe some this weekend?? ;)

We started our Christmas festivities last weekend by heading out to Stony Point for the tree lighting.  We'd never been to this tree lighting before, so it was nice to go to something new!

Little munchkin all bundled up...even brought out his Christmas blanket ;) 

I loved seeing the tree lit up with just the white lights...

 ...and then with red added in!

So thrilled...haha. Just getting tired!

Can't wait for all the Christmas fun to come this year!!
