Christmastime Is Here Again!

We hung our outdoor Christmas lights over the weekend.  Saturday was our last day in the 40s.  Our highs this week are in the 20s, dropping to the teens overnight.  The cold weather is definitely helping to put us in the Christmas spirit!IMG_9633



Tonight, Mall of America hosted Santa’s Arrival Ceremony.  It was spectacular!IMG_2929

There were elves passing out Christmas tree glasses with green-tinted lenses and jingle bell bracelets – both red and green.IMG_2910

Cale was particularly smitten with this lovely elf.IMG_2906.2
