Christmas Road Trip to Pennsylvania

On the Saturday after Thanksgiving, we had scheduled to have breakfast with Santa at Boyd's Bear Country in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. We had pancakes, eggs, fruit, and sausage as we waited for the Big Guy to come around. Then we all cheered as Santa made his entrance along with Santa Bear and Mrs. Santa Bear. We took some pictures. William was thrilled. I thought he'd be afraid because he's at that age, but he was all smiles and happy shrieks. We all got a plush bear to take home and then we were free to shop the store. It was a little too warm for me and I was more than ready to leave when it was time.

Then Peter and Dad went home with the babies and it was an all girl adventure to Hershey, PA. It was so fun. We went to Chocolate World and took the tour to see how chocolate is made. Got a free sweet treat, and got set loose in the largest candy store I'd ever been in. I felt like I was in Willy Wonka's factory. Every Hershey candy ever made was out for sale. We bought some treats and headed off to the theme park. We rode rides and watched shows and froze our tails off. It was great fun! They had Christmas lights on everything. The whole park was a winter wonderland. Hot chocolate had never tasted so good or felt so comforting. But at 8pm, it was too cold to have any more fun. We went to dinner and headed home.

I am so jealous that you got to spend Thanksgiving with your family!!! :) It looks like you had so much fun. I'm glad that little William didn't have to go to the hospital...I can't imagine how scary that must have been! Can't wait for Christmas when I can see your cute baby in person instead of in pictures!!! :)
