Last night we went to Gilroy Gardens to check out their holiday lights. It's no Butchart Gardens but it was very pretty. 

Aubrey went on a few rides before we watched a short lights presentation set to  music over the waterfalls. It was very hard to watch close up with the lights flashing so fast!

Next we watched a Charlie Brown live show on the meaning of Christmas and drank hot chocolate. 

Then we took the train around the park to see all the lights.

I forgot about posting these photos from Thanksgiving. It's mostly just food but it was a very good meal that Jared made.

Aubrey really wanted to visit Santa at the mall this year which is rare. Every year she has been terrified to go near him so when she said ok - we went. 
It was the friendliest Santa I've met. There was no one else in line as it was during the middle of a rain storm and she got to sit and talk to him about all sorts of things. 

Tonight we drove by a few houses to see some lights on the way home from picking up Jared from work and stopped at the best house - The North Pole Make-a-wish house which is close by. 
Santa and Mrs. Claus were there to visit and take photos with so we stopped. Aubrey was in her pj's but that was ok. 
They even gave her a my little pony. We made a donation and were so much happier than with the mall!
