Throwback Thursday: Christmas Through the Years

Christmas Travels

Over the years we have had the opportunity to experience Christmas at various locations, mostly as we visited family for Thanksgiving. We stopped traveling at Thanksgiving in recent years, so most of these photos are older. In 2007 we celebrated Thanksgiving at my sister’s in Southern California including a trip to Disneyland.

In 2009 we were at her new house in Denver where we visited Santa’s Workshop in North Pole, Colorado.

In 2010 and 2012, we attended the Hershey Park Christmas Candy Lane. We had plans to visit again this year, but the weather out east had other plans.

Santa Pictures

Santa Pictures have been somewhat hit or miss for us through the years. There were a number of years that she refused to greet Santa (and we’ve regressed to those this year at nearly 9).  But, there were a few years where I have good pictures (unfortunately, my favorite from age 1 isn’t on my computer, so it isn’t easy to share).
