Yo Gabba Gabba Live

So for Chrissy's birthday gift Jake and I got her tickets to see Yo Gabba Gabba Live!  She loves the tv show so we thought we would give it a shot!  Chrissy had a fantastic time over the weekend.  The show was in Rosemont, IL so we decided to say the weekend.  We drove up Friday after work and we stayed the night in the aLoft Hotel.  It was very interesting hotel!  That night was the first time Chrissy slept in a regular bed so it was a fun time for her!  She didn't go to bed until 12:30 our time.  Jake and I had to start off in the bed with her but eventually she kicked us out. 

Saturday was the show and our hotel was right accross the street from the theater so we just walked over.  It was a little cold but Chrissy was all bundled up and we headed over! 

We had fantastic seats!  Chrissy sat on my lap but couldn't sit still becuase she just wanted to dance because they we playing music before the show started!!!

The show was amazing!  We had a very happy girl on our hands!  She was dancing and singing and enjoying every bit of it!!  She just was in awe that they were in front of her and real!  It made me tear up that she was so happy!  To relive things through your child's eye is one of the most amazing things.

Chrissy was so exhausted when we got back to the hotel she crashed!  She slept for a few hours which was nice since she didn't sleep all the night before! 

Sunday was St Nicholas day!  We made sure even if we were at a hotel that Chrissy put her shoes by the door!  Sure enough St Nick brought Chrissy her gifts there!  Chrissy was so excited to see her gifts by the door!!!

All in all this weekend has been a blast!  We are definately looking forward to taking Chrissy to more shows because she loves them so much!

Oh Christmas Tree!!!

I love Christmas!  All the lights!  Chrissy is taking after me too because she just can't get enough of the lights either!  Everytime we pass a house all decked out she says "ohhhhh lights!"  Its so cute then she always says... "again"...  Haha!  I don't know what we are going to do after the holidays!  We might just have to do holiday lights for every holiday...  that would be interesting right!  Well, I just thought I would post some pictures of our tree because not many people get to see our tree!  I always "hate" it when we put it up but once all the ornaments and lights and angel get put up...  I fall in love all over again!!! 

Here is this years tree!  The new addition this year is the train around the bottom!  Jake had a good idea!  Chrissy loves it so much!  I do have to say that it doens't stay on the tracks too much because she likes to play with it so much!

Chrissy's Elmo ornament this year for her birthday!  Nana got this for her and it reflects her party this year!

Here are our inital ornaments! 

Here is our yearly picture ornaments for Chrissy!  I can't believe that this is her 3rd Christmas!  I can't wait to see her face when Santa comes this year!!!

Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas and a Blessed New Year!!!
