I love Christmas.
I actually love the entire fall/winter season. The period between Halloween and New Years Day is my absolute favorite time of the year.
But it always goes by too quickly!
And if I’m not careful, I let holiday preparations (sending out Christmas cards, shopping for gifts, meal planning and food preparation, etc.) take over and I miss out on the actual joy of the holiday season itself.
Which is why we always try to do something special together as a family each December. Ideally, we try to get away from home because of all the “stuff” that always seems to need to be done. I step away from my Christmas lists and trying to figure out the perfect gift for everyone. I leave the stack of cards to be addressed on the dining room table and we go out to spend time together as a family.
This year we are going to the beautiful Westin La Cantera Hill Country Resort for their annual “Hill Country Holidays,” event – a unique holiday winter wonderland program that runs from November 22, 2012 through January 6, 2013. We can’t wait to see the resort come to life with Christmas lights and decorations and participate in a variety of activities right on the property like ice skating, arts and crafts, cookie decorating, carolers and (of course) a visit with Santa!
In addition to Frost; their synthetic outdoor skating rink, they will also have live shows by the Magik Theatre of San Antonio and The North Pole complete with an elves playland and magical snow fall!
We can’t wait!
