Michael and I joined his parents for breakfast at the Walnut Room. Michael and his family have been doing this tradition for many years! After breakfast we did a little shopping, and of course stopped in the FAO Schwarz area. We purchased Finly a floor activity set and a new bunny (Michael and I both had bunnies as a child that were our "favorites"). Finly's grandparents purchased him a Teddy Bear that will still be bigger than him/her at 5!
We celebrated another tradition with the Janzen family today. We went to the Goodman Theater to see A Christmas Carol, and then headed to Lawry's for dinner. We had a wonderful time (as always). We played a little trivia on the way down, did a Christmas Mad Lib, and a word search. I really made the drive to the city go pretty quick. It was pretty cold and started to snow while we there, but made it feel more like Christmas.
