The Queen of Christmas Merriment

I don’t know if you noticed, but I like to go places with my kid. Come rain, or come shine, or come the holiday season, we go places. In fact, I’m so good at going places, that I have cleverly made that our family tradition. This smart mami gets out of shopping, baking, and making wreaths by getting out of the house. I know, I know, they should make me queen.

Now the holiday season is well underway, and we are going places. Oh, we have plans to see twinkly lights, and dancing Nutcrackers in tights this December. We will head down to the city (San Francisco, to be exact) and stand in awe of the giant gingerbread palace in the fancy lobby of the Westin St. Francis Hotel, the doggies up for adoption in the Macy’s window display and the congregation of weird Santas in Union Square.

Every family does the whole holiday tradition differently, but this is our thing. Years from now, I hope my kid remembers that sometimes I made lame attempts at baking gingerbread men, and that sometimes I made more successful attempts at finding the darn best light display in town. Hopefully, he’ll forget the Santa with the dog collar and fishnet stockings.

I’m not the only one dreaming of Christmas this week, head on over to Mother of All Trips, the original Monday dreamer always has something good to share.

  1. I’m with you! Later this week I’ll have a post about the best ways to get out of the house with the kids at the holidays. I’m sure your kiddo will have many a fond memory of holiday jaunts.

  2. I’m with you on this one, although trying to find cool ways to celebrate the season in Los Angeles has been a bit challenging this year. I would SO love to take my 6 yo to see the Nutcracker. Have fun!

  3. So fun that you go places! We do all the baking, decorating, shopping and singing of carols but I have been trying to go places this year too. We are doing all the church functions, hymn sings, light displays and santa visits that we can! I would love for those things to be some of my girls favorite memories too.
