We started it off with a trip to the Woodlands to celebrate Tutu's birthday and visit the Lighting of the Doves - a wintery wonderland right in the middle of Texas! Complete with real snow!
And then she was off to play in the real snow - she would not leave it for anything. I think the only reason we got her out is because she couldn't feel her fingers!
And the night ended with a visit from Santa and some awesome fireworks
Then on Tuesday we headed to Humble to spend the day with Mimi and Grandpa. They helped Olivia make a gingerbread Turkey to display on Thanksgiving.
On Wednesday, I took Olivia and Emma to see the Sugarplum Fairy light up the Christmas tree at the Wortham Center. I loved seeing how happy and sweet these two friends were with each other and how much they liked all the festivities.
And, my favorite thing this Christmas has to be Olivia's love of the ornaments. We have all my old ornaments from when I was little on the tree. And, she LOVES them. There are princesses, fairies, ballerinas - a girly galore of glitter. She organizes them everyday - ballerinas together, animals together, fairies together, etc. And yes, we have had a few break but some superglue is worth it for the hour of imaginative playtime!
