NCMA's Holiday Family Fun Friday

Two blogs in two days, I feel like I should get an award!  I'm trying to go in order of everything I meant to post about before Christmas, so we're backtracking again to another Christmas-related activity.

On the Friday before my birthday, the Baums along with our besties decided to check out the North Carolina Museum of Art's Holiday Family Fun Friday.  This event is one that I found online when I was looking for fun Christmas activities.  It was a free event, so my expectations weren't super high, but it looked like it would be cute.  It was a pajama party for the kids, and there were arts & crafts, music, movies, and even an indoor "campfire" with story time.

The first thing we checked out was the campfire area, which was super cute.  They had all of these little tents set up and there was a band playing Christmas songs.  Note: Lilly's Christmas PJ's had not yet arrived, which is why she is in a Christmas outfit instead.






At this point, I still hadn't ordered Christmas cards because Dan and I could not agree on a family photo, so we took the opportunity to pose in front of a Christmas tree and Steph was nice enough to snap a few photos with my camera in hopes that we could get a picture we both liked.




Does anyone who received a Baum Christmas card this year recognize this photo?  Thanks, Steph!




Sadly, I stopped taking pictures at this point in the evening, but we really didn't do much else.  We all grabbed dinner together and then attempted to sit by the "fire" for story time with Hadley and Lilly, but at the time we sat down the book was kind of boring and the girls weren't super interested.  Also, Santa was there, but the line was long and he was sitting in a canoe instead of a sleigh so we didn't bother with another visit.

I think that this event will be fun for the girls when they are a little older.  The set up was really cute, and there were a lot of activities, but not a ton for the 2 and under age range.  Either way, Lilly and Hadley both seemed to have a great time checking everything out, and it was a fun outing with the besties!  

Stay tuned for more posts, I still have to get to L's 11-month post as well as her first Christmas.  Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend!
