25 days of Christmas begins!

I had soo much fun planning the 25 days of Christmas for Cayden, it is yet another tradition I have decided to start as well as a Christmas Scripture every night. I was searching and searching for one that I liked and came across one that was centered around Christ's life. It started with the birth and ended with him dying on the cross and in between, there were scriptures about all of the miracles and things he did. It was perfect and we loved reading them every night.Here is the beginning of the 25 days of Christmas.
Day 1: Met Santa at the public library (note to self, make sure I pull down Cayden's jeans =) )

Day 2: We hung up colored Christmas lights in Cayden's room which he loved. And ended up breaking before Christmas even came but it was fun while it lasted!
Day 3: Cayden wrote his first wish list to Santa! I like usual let him completely come up with what he wanted to ask for and we could not get enough of his wishes..

He asked for a Doll house, green exit sign, red exit sign, rocket ship, and a candy cane. He did also ask for an emergency exit but I explained to him that might be a little hard for Santa =)

We headed over to Macy's and dropped it off, they donate money for every letter so we thought that would be a good place to take it!

Day 4: Disneyland trip with Grammy! We had such a blast, the weather was great, and the park wasn't too crowded. We tried to get on every ride which we pretty much accomplished except for the fantasy land ones.

This was the best score I have ever gotten so I was proud of myself =), I will admitt the ride stopped for a little while but still!

Grammy got Cayden his own buzz light year gun which he played with the rest of the day.

Grammy went on Autopia with Cayden, this is a ride he LOVES but we never like to go on because when it is time to get off it is melt down time but thinking that Grammy was with him he would be fine, he wasn't happy to get off but it wasn't nearly as bad as previous trips.

We tried out toon town, which is yet another place to avoid with Cayden, I think it just gives him too much freedom since its better if they are out of the stroller. Not to mention we always seem to be there when it should be nap time..

By the end of the night we were exhausted but had such a great time!
Day 5: Read the spirit of Christmas, I love this book and cry almost every time.
More to come!
