We are recovering from a busy weekend celebrating my birthday! Friday night marked the beginning of Christmas Break and we attended "The Grinch" musical and ate a yummy birthday dinner at The Melting Pot. It is SO SO good and a wonderful treat! Saturday morning, Marissa and I did some Christmas cookie baking. Then we headed to St. Augustine for dinner, the best coffee at the Crucial Coffee Cafe and a trolley ride to see all the beautiful lights. On Sunday, we had a Drive In Movie night with our neighborhood to see the classic Home Alone. It was a busy weekend but so fun! Here is a few pics from the weekend!
Brody had a Christmas program at his school this morning. He was chosen to be Joseph. Boy, is he the cutest Joseph ever! I'm going to post some pictures and videos below! The director of the school came up to us after the program and said that Brody was chosen because he is the best listener! We are proud parents! Enjoy!

Here are the videos. Tip: hit the button to make it full screen on your computer so you can see Joseph nice and clear! (hint: he's the one standing in front of the manger, ha!)
We've been keeping busy trying to get all the festive activities in. We are in the midst of Christmas programs, parties and concerts! The Christmas season is truly the most fun time of year. It's been so fun decorating our new home and enjoying all the new events in our neighborhood. Last weekend after Tony got back from New York, we went to a local church who was sponsering a Live Nativity and the City of Bethlehem. We all really enjoyed it and there was lots of interactive activities and animals to pet. After that, we stopped by our neighborhood local park where they have a synchronized music with the lights. That was amazing! Our local neighborhood we have renamed the Christmas Village. Our neighbors have really given Chevy Chase's Christmas a run for his money. It's amazing! This week we've had so much going on at the kids schools but it sure makes it fun!
We had a wonderful weekend celebrating Marissa's 9th birthday. Before we moved to Florida, we talked about taking Marissa to Disney World on her birthday and we were able to make it happen! It sure is so much easier when you can drive there and it's only 2 short hours away! The lines weren't bad and we were able to get through everything we wanted. It sure was a memorable day and I'm so glad we were able to go!
We also had such a fun week with Grandpa and Grandma Holgrimson. They came to visit over Thanksgiving. We had a good time of showing them around our new city. Can't wait until our next visit!
