The first weekend in December is Christmas kick-off weekend in McCook. There are so many fun things to do to start the Christmas holiday...Santa flies into the airport and then is found at Santa's workshop all day, there are lots of craft shows, a free movie matinee, and the lighted parade downtown. Christian had to work Saturday, so the boys and I decided to take advantage of all the fun things going on. We started the day with making Carson his birthday breakfast...pancakes in the shape of gingerbread men and sausage (one of his favorites). After breakfast, we got ready and headed to see Santa at Wal-Mart. After that we ran to the free movie and saw Monster's in the Attic. After the movie, we ran to the craft shows (which are nothing like the ones in Powell and Cody), then came home for naps. After naps, it was time to head down town to watch the parade. We went down a little early so that we could go see Santa at his workshop. Carson is so into Christmas this year and it has already been lots of fun! Travis, on the other hand...is deathly afraid of Santa (as you will see in the pictures). It was a fun day and a good way to celebrate Carson's actual birthday!
Waiting for the parade to start
We got our tree decorated earlier this week. The boys both helped put the ornaments on. I thought for sure that Travis was going to be the one that would bother the ornaments, but it's Carson that I have to worry about. He rearranges them daily!! Both of my boys love it. Travis kept saying "wow" and Carson kept telling, and continues to tell me daily, that it's the most beautiful! He kept hugging the tree the first night it was up...too cute!!
