We kicked-off our Christmas Eve festivities with a visit to Peacock Lane to see the Christmas Lights with Jessie & Zach (extra special hot chocolate made by Zach). After that, Larisa joined us at our house for clam chowder, presents and our annual viewing of Love Actually (my favorite Christmas movie). Alaire got a baby sushi teething toy from J & Z and aunt Larisa made her a snowman to start her a snowman collection. I couldn’t help but get really excited for next year, when Alaire starts to “get” Santa and is so excited she squeals with glee and dances around the house. I will probably squeal and dance along with her!
