Cambria Christmas Market
Christmas is my absolute favorite time of year. I come by it honestly, because my mom is practically an elf. A human, raised by elves. ;)
We kicked off the holiday season by heading to the Cambria Christmas Market. I haven't heard so much as a whisper about this, and I have to say, it is SUCH A SHAME I have gone this many years of my life missing out on this amazing holiday display!
The lights, the decorations, and the Santa who was so cute and jolly I could have sworn he was the real deal! This stuff is right up my ally!
It was in the high 50's so we were able to bust out our "cold weather" clothes, and I was finally able to wear the beautiful fur hat Cameron brought me (OK, he didn't know it was going to be for me, but for his wife...) from Russia. Penny's outfit was a cheetah print fuzzy onesie (hand-me-down from cousin Sadie!) and was charmin the pants off of all of the old people. (we went mid-week, so it was mostly couples and old people, but it wasn't crowded so that was awesome). Cameron is sporting his awesome hat from his brother, Ausin's trip to the Netherlands, and Nathan just looks plain amazing in his beanie. Win all around for the Jensen family.
We were so glad that my mom could come enjoy the festiveness with us!
Penny met Santa! And no tears were shed! Nathan wasn't interested in sitting on Santa's lap, so Cameron hopped in the picture with them. Penny was her normal friendly self and just looked around at all of the lights, and tried to grab Santa's beard.
Funny Nathan story:
So there were two old men playing Christmas sons on their trumpets so we stopped to listen. Two ladies (I am guessing they were the men's wives) and one other couple were listening so we were a small intimate group. When we sat down the ladies ogled the kids, of course. About 3 minutes into the music Nathan stands up, turns towards the audience (he was in the front row with my mom) and goes, "I'm done," and starts walking away. Everyone started cracking up, thank goodness. I think the wives of the musicians thought it was the funniest. Oh, Nathan.
Penny was an absolute champ...didn't whine or cry one bit even though it was past her bedtime, and Nathan loved running around looking at all of the lights. I love this season and I love my little munchkins that make everything so much more magical.
