Christmas time @ The Grand America Hotel

This is our 3rd year in a row we have enjoyed the Christmas festivities at the Grand America in downtown Salt Lake. It is such a beautiful hotel and it is even more beautiful during the holiday season. They decorate windows throughout the main floor of the hotel, each window this year, was a part of a story. So, we went through the hotel reading the story, finding clues in each window also~ to fill out for the game card~ that we redeemed in the hotel's bake shop for treat. There was also a life size gingerbread house on display~ pretty amazing! We took my parents, Laura and Cait and Jared with us this year~ loved it!!

We had a fun Family night last Monday the bitter cold, at a Christmas Celebration in Bountiful. "The Square" @ 2600 South put on a fabulous family event, which included horse-drawn carriage rides, pictures w/ Santa that they printed on the spot and gave to us, fire-pits to keep us warm, hot chocolate, cookies, popcorn, frozen yogurt, music, and a visit w/ Mrs. Claus too. (oh, and it was all FREE!) It was a great night...we will be back next year for sure!


Every year, the kids get to go see Santa at Daddy's work~ what a treat! ...thes best part is, they have had the same Santa for years. Surprisingly, Wyatt did not want to sit in his lap,...but he was willing to share his cheetos with him :)
