Isn't December the BEST month?! So many fun traditions. And so fun to share them with Andy and Max. Here are some things we did:
We went to see the Festival of Trees with Andy's Joy School group. Andy loved it! This was the tree he picked to be pictured with. I thought he'd pick the Frozen Tree or something, but what do I know.
I had the best mommy date with Andy! I got to take him to the symphony for the first time. They had a cute children's Christmas concert on a Saturday afternoon. Even Santa made an appearance! Andy mostly cared about them playing Frosty the Snowman, his favorite Christmas tune. Thankfully, they didn't disappoint. We had great box seats so Andy could see all the instruments really well. He LOVED it! I went to the Utah Symphony all the time growing up, so it was fun to share the magic with Andy. And we got ice cream after, just to make sure he liked it.
Christine and Sam came into town for Christmas, so we got to play with them quite a bit! We went to Discovery Gateway and made sugar cookies with my mom.

We had a super fun Texas party when some Texas friends came in town! Check out all these cute kiddos. Hard to believe there are this many now.
|Love, love, love these ladies.|
We decorated a gingerbread house. As you can see, Andy loved it. I'm not sure which he loved more: decorating the house or eating half the frosting. ;)
We went to go see Zoo Lights with Cameron's parents. It was our first time going! So fun. And we went to The Pie after--Greg and Kathy's first time. Why is that place sooooo good?!
We went to see the lights downtown. We always went for a family night in December growing up. I remember getting super bundled up and thinking it was the most magical, beautiful thing ever. I feel like it's the first year Andy really LOVED it. Despite his decision to absolutely NOT wear a coat the first 30 minutes, even though it was freezing cold. Eventually he gave in. :)
We had the funnest morning with Cam's family a couple days before Christmas. We went to breakfast at Market Street Grill then went to see all the decorated windows at Grand America. The windows were a first for us, and we loved it! We'll definitely come back next year.
