Last year, I took Lainey to Tea at the fabulous Plaza Hotel in New York City. We established a tradition, then and there, that we'd take one night each year just for us to celebrate Christmas. No boys allowed!
This year, we spent the day visiting friends....to the the Hotel Del Coronado for a treat.....and then to the Young Actors' Theatre for a holiday show. We dressed up and had the best day. It was awesome!
First stop, for Lainey to meet my Godson, Behr. So sweet.
He's nearly 6 weeks old. We love him.
We picked up a gift for the kids at Melissa's house and then went to the beach near the Del for a walk.
Lainey's sporting some new faux fur leg warmers. Her favorite. And, also the cutest Stella and Dot pearls, which we were a gift from Kelly for her birthday.
We decided against ice skating. As cool as it would be to skate by the sea, the rink is SO tiny and the prices are SO ridiculous. We paid less to skate in NYC at Bryant Park!
Instead, we settled in by the fire on the Sunset Deck. Had a snack and lots of girl talk.
The decorations are beautiful.
And, as always, we love the shopping!
Finally, we headed to the theatre for Home for the Holidays. Lainey loves a good musical.
It was a special day!
We're now in the final week pre-Christmas break. We'll visit Disneyland once more for their holiday celebration and then prepare for Christmas!
