Daddy has off every Friday in December, granted two are because of the eves Christmas & New Years (& the actual holiday falling on a weekend). I am hoping we can do some fun things on each of these Fridays. This Friday, we went to downtown Minneapolis and met grandma & grandpa M there to go to the "Sleigh Ride" concert that the MN Orchestra was performing. It was a good production and I was so proud of the how well the children behaved. They were actually very well behaved for everything. I was very proud of them and there were so many opportunities and reasons they could have misbehaved or thrown tantrums.
Next we went to the Macy's 8th floor display of "A Day in the Life of an Elf". It was the same display as last year, but we had never seen it. And at the end the kids were able to meet Santa. Santa gave each of the kids pins that said they were there. Not sure why Macy's gave little kids sharp point objects. They should have just given out a sticker that said the same thing.
Lunch was at Potbelly's and we had some great sandwiches, chips & smoothie.
And they weren't in the car for more than 5 minutes before they both fell asleep and slept the entire ride home.
