One Saturday we were watching our nieces and decided to try out a Christmas Light Scavenger Hunt I saw on a blog. It was so much fun! This is definitely a tradition we will be continuing! Luckily we had a reader in the car (Mia) so we gave them each a copy of the checklist, a clipboard and a pen, and we drove slowly up and down all the streets in our neighborhood with the interior lights on. They got so excited when they spotted something and Mia helped them identify which item they needed to check off. We found almost every item on the list just in our neighborhood.
We met Santa at Bass Pro, as we do every year. We had a few attempts because the lines were crazy this year, but we saw him at long last.

We had our annual cookie decorating party at the Mitchells' house this year. The kids loved it.
