Holiday Fun | Toddler Style

I have loved seeing all the different Christmas traditions my fellow bloggers and friends take part in.
A couple of them really struck a cord with me and I have been waiting impatiently to do them as well :)
This is the first year that X seems to really be into Christmas.
The lights, Santa, the presents, etc.
I can't wait until Christmas morning!
Thankfully (and YIKES!) it is only a few days away!

Friday evening I picked up X like normal and rushed him home for an early shower.
We then changed into our comfy clothes, gathered some drinks & such, picked up a pizza, and headed out on the town to look at Christmas lights!
I loved doing this as a kid, and have waited for the day to do this with X!
We needed to eat dinner, so I figured let's add pizza to the mix to make it extra fun!

That little face!
X loved looking out the window at the flashing light display. One of the local radio stations sets the lights to music :)

Saturday morning I had plans to finally made a gingerbread house with X while Mic had some office work to do.
Of course, once we woke up plans changed.
Instead, we got ready for the day and headed out to do some last minute Christmas shopping together. Two places was enough for X, so we grabbed some chicken nuggets and called it a morning.
I then headed back out to brave the crowds to finish the rest of the shopping and assist my FIL with his.
Fingers crossed my MIL likes the items I he picked out for her ;)
X declared this the spot to eat his lunch = middle of the hallway ?

Saturday evening I made some homemade goodies to share as gifts, I finally watched a little bit of The Grinch (my favorite Christmas movie), and we called it a night.

Sunday was normal for the most part.
Grocery shopping, watch the Browns, and do some chores around the house. 
Nothing too exciting.
Since the Browns game wasn't that fun to watch I took the opportunity to wrap some presents while the guys napped.
I still have half of them left, but at least it was a start!

I finished up the daycare gifts, watched a little bit of the Sound of Music Sing-along and headed to bed :)
sugar scrub, mason jar gifts

I am still hoping to make that gingerbread house with X!
Maybe Christmas Eve morning :)

I can't believe Christmas is only a few days away!!!
Are you ready?
Do you have any special traditions you do on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?
I would love to hear about them!
