We have done so many activities this season and it has been so much fun. Living in the triangle, there are a hundred things you could do that are Christmas/holiday themed so we had to pick and choose. I think we picked some good ones though!
First up, we did cookies and the train at The Carolina Inn. His first year, we did Breakfast with Santa and it was fine but this was even better. There were cookies and ornaments to decorate, a reading of the Polar Express and two chances to ride the train. Best of all — his best friend was by his side for the whole thing!
The next weekend we had an early Christmas celebration with Landon’s family. Which included our 2nd annual trip to 1870 farm to see Santa and go for a hayride.
Before telling Santa what he wanted, L asked him where he parked his sleigh 😂
We made salt dough ornaments and L got very creative when decorating them by adding extra eyes and mixing all his paint colors together.
We were supposed to go to Wilmington to see the lights at Airlie Gardens but it was a rainy mess so we canceled. Landon got a stomach virus over the weekend so it was probably for the best we didn’t go. He still wasn’t feeling well on Sunday so granddad took his ticket and accompanied us to see Rudolph in Raleigh.
It was L’s first show and he did so well. He sat quietly the whole time (other than to tell me he didn’t like the snow monster). He loved dancing to the music and clapping for the cast.
We ended our evening with got chocolate and marshmallow snowmen. Once again, the kid liked the idea of hot chocolate more than the drink but the marshmallows were a big hit.
We’re looking forward to seeing so much more family over the next few weeks and L is very much looking forward to his fire truck from Santa.
