It seems like 2 weeks before Christmas is always the busiest holiday activity weekend around. We kicked it off Thursday with Disney on Ice followed by City Ballet's The Nutcracker on Saturday morning. I'm not ready to commit us to the full price Carolina Ballet production just yet. The girls' favorite part is always Mother Ginger and the kids that run out from underneath her skirt.
We got a live tree this year and decorated it Sunday morning. It's the biggest one ever, so we pretty much used almost everything in the box - even both Wonder Womans (but only one of the two Chewbaccas).
We finished up the holiday festivites Sunday by attending TMOTT's Cookies with Santa event. The girls both asked only for American Girl dolls and were very excited to have one of Santa's helpers make them a balloon animal.
