Fun at Crown Center

We spent the afternoon at Crown Center. We saw Rudolph the musical. It was FANTASTIC!! Just like the classic TV show.  Afterwards we went to Gingerbread Station to visit Santa. This visit she told Santa she wants "a doll."  Then on the way out we saw the Mayors Christmas Tree and played at the park.  That evening Avalyn watch Rudolph like 5 times in a row, lol!

Christmas Fairy Princess

We went to the Fairy Princess Breakfast again this year and loved it just the same as last year. So much fun and Avalyn loves seeing the princess. This year they had dancing instead of the puppet show. Avalyn really adored the dancers.  The dancers also gave the girls a little dance lesson.  At the end Avalyn got a Teddy Bear from the Fairy Princess.

Let the Holiday Fun Begin

We flew to the North Pole again this year and Ava enjoyed it even more than last year! She laughed the entire sleigh ride. I think she was a little star struck because when Santa asked her what she wanted she said "a candy cane"  What??  Lol!!  After that we rode the carousel, checked out the Disney store and American Doll store, went to Build A Bear, and had dinner at Panera.

Oh Christmas Tree

We put our tree up and when I plugged it in only 2/3 of the lights worked. So we ended up getting a new one. This one isn't as tall so we can put it in our living room. Love it!
