William's Christmas Extravaganza

On Friday night we had a Family Christmas Extravaganza in downtown Minneapolis. We first went to see the Nutcracker display on the 8th floor of Macy's. William enjoyed all the lights and the animated characters. If any of you live in the Twin Cities I highly recommend wandering up there with your kids. The best part is that it's free!

Following the display, Macy's of course gives your children the opportunity to sit with Santa. Even though this is technically William's second Christmas, it was his first time meeting Santa since he was just a newborn last year. We expected tears and cries when he saw the man in the big red coat but instead we got smiles and giggles! It was really funny.

After that everyone bundled up for the 5-degree chill and scoped out a spot on Nicollet Mall to watch the Holidazzle Parade. Although it was nearly impossible for William to move underneath 17 layers of clothing he was still able to get his legs moving to the beat of the music that was playing on the floats. I confess we did cut out a bit early due to the cold and escaped to Ike's for some hot drinks and appetizers. It was a great night and William was fantastic especially given the fact that we pushed his bedtime back two hours.
