Hi friends!! I hope your week is off to a good start! We are plugging away on work over here so we can enjoy next week relaxing. I am really looking forward to it.
I have plans for a big day of cookie baking this weekend, which I am excited about. This year has been a long and hard year for us all and I am trying to keep some semblance of normalcy during the holidays that will inevitably be so different this year.
Along with both our families, we decided we would be staying put for Thanksgiving and Christmas this year due to covid. Although a hard decision, I know it is the right one considering the huge increase in covid cases following Thanksgiving. It is tough not to be surrounded by family during the holidays, but the risk is just too great. I am really looking forward to the holidays next year, but in the meantime, we will do what we can to make this year special. 🙂
Obviously holiday parties are out of the question this year so we decided to go to see some Christmas lights last week.
Our town has this drive through experience with Christmas lights and music to go along with it.
Yes, we took the dogs. Are you surprised? 😉
They were pretty mesmerized which was funny.
The lights weren’t the best I’ve ever seen, but a change of scenery was really nice!
So now you tell me, what are you doing to keep the holidays special this year? Any fun traditions?
