A Favorite Family Tradition

This week has been busy, busy, busy, but we did find some time to fit in one of my favorite holiday traditions.
Every year we head out to the Mission Inn, we eat dinner and then go to see the decorations.
I look forward to this every year and it's not just because one of my favorite shops is there ;)
Seriously though the decorations and lights never disappoint.

Even better this year they had fake snow blowing in a few areas.
I know these pictures are blurry but I had to share them.
Brooklyn was being so funny giggling and covering her face from the snow and of course Kayla was all smiles.

We stop and grab some dessert at Casey's Cupcakes every time and then head to check out the lights.
Oh and don't worry I always get a chance to take a peek around my favorite little shop ;)

I almost didn't want to leave we were having so much fun but bedtime was calling and hubby had to work in the morning so we headed back home all while listening to the girls serenade us with Christmas Carols.
I can't believe Christmas is here in just 2 days!
Does it really have to be over so soon?
