Being a mom has really built more excitement for me as I watch A grow and her anticipation and excitement for the holidays grows with every year that comes our way. We have been getting the “wows” and “ahh”s this year as we drive by lights or discover new traditions. We’ve been building traditions little by little every year. A couple weeks ago we headed over to Bass Pro Shops to visit the Santa Wonderland. Minus the Santa part because the passes to see him were gone 3 hours before we even got there. Instead we had a grand time making a gingerbread ornament, checking out the “elves”, riding the reindeer carousel and enjoying the toy train is is went around. That Santa was overrated anyways. Ha. Overall, we had a really great time and it started building out excitement for holiday traditions to seek out this year!
