It's that time of the year again here in "Arizona's Christmas City," where front yards are decorated, houses are lit up, and everything seems just a little more magical. This year's holiday season has flown by way too fast, so we've been trying to soak it up a little more in this last week leading up to Christmas. One of our favorite things to do is take a walk downtown right around dusk. The lights are just beginning to come on, and although it's absolutely freezing, it really does feel like a holiday wonderland!
When Happy Family contacted me about putting together a post for the holidays I immediately said "yes!" We have been enjoying their products for years- both Henry and Charlie love their stuff, so it was a no brainer to want to work with them. On any given day (or any given stroll!) there's a good chance you will find a pouch or some sort of Happy Family snack in one of the boys' hands.
And on this particular day we headed out about an hour or so before dinner, so I grabbed some yougurt bites and rice cakes and we were good to go. One of the biggest things I've found about being a mama of two is that I have to plan. And snacks are a must! If you were to take a peek in my bag right now you'd find a million different snack options...and sippy cups and board books and probably a rogue sock or two also. hah.
So I bundled my babies up, we snacked and strolled and took in all of the lights. The look on Charlie's face as we walked past some of the bright displays was the coolest- all wonder and awe and pure happiness. Even though this is technically his second Christmas it kind of feels like his first as I watch him discover everything as if it's new again. I feel lucky I get to experience all of this through my childrens' fresh perspective, and I feel extra grateful I have these two boys to remind me that sometimes the simplest things- a walk with the people you love and some yummy snacks- make up the best kind of nights.
