A Colorado Christmas Pt 1

Merry Christmas! This year we headed to Colorado to hang out with my family!
The kids didn't forget about the pilots and stewardesses on our flight, handing out nice chocolate bars with bows on them. They were very appreciative.

"Grand" Gingerbread House at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel - All 25 Hidden Mickeys

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas!
Just a few months ago for Halloween, this lobby was dominated by a giant pumpkin made out of cake! They had 13 Hidden Mickeys then.
Now it's time for the annual Gingerbread house in the Grand Californian Lobby and this year they're stepping up with the Hidden Mickeys. There's 25 to find! Whew! Better get started!

Sleepy Hollow Christmas Lights and Santa comes to visit

In what has become an annual Christmas tradition, this season we had to find time to go see the lights at Sleepy Hollow in Torrance CA. Just like last year, my brother was able to make it down for it, along with Jacob and Ryan.

Making Figgy Pudding for Christmas

You've heard it sung about hundreds of times.
Now bring us some Figgy Pudding, Now bring us some Figgy Pudding, Now bring us some Figgy Pudding, and bring some right here.  
Have you ever had Figgy Pudding though? I never have.

Every year since 2014, I've challenged myself to make a Christmas treat that I've never made before. It started with Gingerbread Men (2014), Homemade Candy Canes (2015), Fudge (2016), and Peppermint Marshmallows (2017).
2018 will be the year of Figgy Pudding!

What's cuter than 2 Prep and Landing Christmas elves?
How about 4 Prep and Landing Christmas elves?
So it's not the cutest picture, but they were getting big smiles and comments all day.

Today is a special day at the Disneyland Resort. It's the first Saturday of December, which means it's the day of the Candlelight Processional. Since 1958, some form of this event has been going on at Disneyland.
