Christmas 2011 (Part 1)

Since Sweet Husband works in retail, Christmas Eve is on-the-clock for him.  The first few years it was a little hard for me, but I've actually come to enjoy it.  The jewelry store he works at closes early, and they have a little party to celebrate the end of the busy season before everyone goes off to be with family.Christmas morning1Christmas morning-1The Kiddo loves the store.  Mostly because, well, they kinda love him too.  But it's also a nice wide-open place (with mirrors!) for him to practice his locomotion.

And this year Santa himself came to the party!  It was so cool!  The Kid got his very own, one-on-one meet and greet with the big guy.  (And the little handshake...*melt*.)

Then, we took a quick loop around Mass Street.  Everything was mostly closed, of course, but the lights were still much enjoyed.
