25 Days of Christmas: Part 3

This week has totally gotten away from me! Sorry I didn’t get this posted sooner! Here’s the last activities of our 25 days of Christmas. I’ve got a ton of Christmas Eve and Day and Christmas in Lafayette to get uploaded to the computer, hopefully I’ll have those posted soon!

Day 17: Travel

Addy and I packed our bags and headed north to start our next adventures. She was a great flyer! At home, she enjoyed Nana’s Christmas tree, Grumpy’s outdoor decorations and dinner at El Taco Real.

Day 18: McCord’s Candy Canes

On Friday, Addy, Uncle Dave and I headed out of town for the weekend to visit family in Indy. We stopped in Lafayette for lunch with Taylor’s parents and made a stop at McCord’s Candies for homemade Candy Canes. They were delish!Christmas-25Days-1

Day 19: Indiana State Museum

Aunt Katie and Uncle Andrew planned an exciting afternoon. We visited the Indiana State Museum which had 50 holiday trees on display. We really enjoyed our visit. The trees were awesome and the rest of the museums exhibits were pretty neat too. I totally recommend a visit!

Our family loves this movie and this greeted us at the door!Christmas-25Days-3I don’t know who was more excited!

After the museum we headed to a German Christmas market. Addy thought it was hilarious that we had her all bundled up. It was actually pretty chilly,but she was handling it pretty well! The market was a tad bit of a bust, but I’m glad we tried it out. Christmas-25Days-17 Christmas-25Days-18 Christmas-25Days-19 Christmas-25Days-20 Christmas-25Days-21

Day 20: Indianapolis Children’s Museum

On Sunday, we headed to the Children’s museum in Indianapolis after a delicious breakfast. We met with some other cousin and had an amazing time! It was decorated for the winter holidays and had some special holiday activities.
