Holiday on the Square, Carmel 2011

We went to the lighting of the Christmas tree in Carmel tonight at the Holiday on the Square.

This is the 3rd time we have been and this is the first time the kids actually got to see Santa. The line has always been super long but we got there a bit early this year so we decided to wait to see Santa. The got their picture taken, told him what they wanted for Christmas and got a goodie bag full of stuff.

We stayed until the lights were switched on. The Mayor called all the kids to the tree and asked them to help him count down from 10 to turn the lights on. There were no reindeers this year but we saw an eagle and the K got to meet the mascot of Chick-fil-A(!) They were one of the sponsors of the event.

We had cookies, chips & dip, little pastry type things and hot chocolate and the kids each got a candy cane that they decorated to look like a reindeer! All free!

We then went to Red Robin as a reward for Z having a really great week at school. He was told he could choose a reward and he wanted to go to Red Robin!
