The Week Ahead Events List for South Florida 12/19/14

6th Street in Pompano Beach

Sunflower & LadybugI know that a sunflower is a strange thing to post so near to Christmas, but this is what we have been up to this week.  No, I am not done shopping and no I still have not made cookies!  Instead we went to a few Christmas Parties and released Ladybugs in our garden!  Our garden plot is doing pretty well, (aside from the bugs eating our beans) we have about 5 sunflowers and this one is just about perfect!  We may have some carrots in a few weeks too if the ladybugs do their jobs!

Here are some of my favorite things for the Holidays!

Santa’s Enchanted Evening will be in Wilton Manors this weekend. The snow is great fun!  Get there early as it does get a bit crowded!  Also don’t be silly like we were last year and forget to bring gloves.  We saved the day by letting my daughter take off her socks and put them on her hands! If you are not wearing socks and don’t have gloves…..well….not sure what to tell you at that point! 😉

Next up are my favorite Holiday Web sites! Who does not need a free personalized video message from Santa for the kids? Not to mention Norad Tracks Santa on Christmas Eve! We track Santa every Christmas Eve, it is loads of fun and pretty educational too!

Santa LandBass Pro Shops is the only place to get a free picture with Santa! We went last weekend and this year they did not have a craft other than a coloring page.  However all the games are up and a free photo with Santa does not hurt!

Here is the best place to go and see Christmas lights in Pompano Beach, are you ready? Behind the Cemetery on 6th Street (if you drive over you can’t miss them!) the whole street usually lights up and celebrates! I have not been over there yet this year, but we can’t wait to go back!  Tradewinds Park also does a drive through lighting of the park. I have not been to it yet, so let us know if you like it!

Oh, and don’t forget that Santa will be on the Beach in Fort Lauderdale this weekend too!  Check out the video clips of the Pompano Boat Parade below if you missed it!

Snow Women

Happy Cyber Monday everyone!

Building a SnowGirlI just wanted to drop everyone a note hoping you all had as wonderful of a Thanksgiving as we did.  You may have noticed (or not) that there was no post last Thursday!

We decided to be crazy and drive to Ohio for Thanksgiving!  My family has always used Thanksgiving as an excuse to get to get together and it has been our major family day since I was a kid.  We get up in the morning, drive to Pittsburgh for the day and eat and spend time with our many many cousins and my Aunt Jean (Great Aunt actually).

Building a SnowGirl
The girls are adamant that this is a SnowWomen, not a Snow Man!

As it turned out my daughter got to see snow for the first time, build a” SnowWomen” and

go sledding with her cousin.  I got to see my newest nephew (1 year) for the first time and my newest little cousins too (6 months).  I am truly thankful this year for my family!
