Finally Friday!

I am so excited to get started on the weekend, I feel like a little kid!  We have big plans for this weekend and we are packed and about ready to head out.  Just a little matter of work and school for some of us, but then we will be on our way.  Where are we going?  Well, I thought  you would never ask!  We are heading to the sweetest place on earth! 
Hershey, Pa. for Christmas!
Not really for Christmas, but close enough.  It is a great way to really get the holiday season kicked off into high gear.  The park is all decorated for Christmas with more than 1,000,000. lights, decorations, Christmas characters, live reindeer, rides and of course the whole experience is accompanied by the sweet smell of  chocolate.  Mmmm!  How sweet it is.  We have taken our kids since they were little and now we are lucky enough to take Bella.  Life is good!
Although we are expecting a COLD weekend, we have packed gloves, scarves and lots of layers to keep warm.  Hopefully it will work.  There have been times when we have been there when it has been truly freezing and bitter cold, but when it gets to be too much we go inside to see a show or to go through Chocolate World.  Sometimes just a steaming cup of Hershey's hot chocolate is enough to warm us.  Diet be darned!?  Maybe all the walking that we will be doing will balance things out a bit.  Ha!  Likely story!
Anyway, that's what we will be doing.  I'll check back in on Monday.
'Till then, Candy Cane Wishes and Sugar Plum Dreams!


  1. Oh, that is going to be SO fun!!! I can totally see why you are so excited! Have a wonderful time!

  2. I want to come too. This sounds like so much fun. I aunt went there years ago in the summer and she was telling me about it, and I wanted to go then.
    Please take lots of pictures, so I can live vicariously through you :)

  3. Oh, how fun! Enjoy your trip. I used to live in Orlando where I could take a day off and head to a theme park just for the heck of it. I really miss that! Diet be darned. If you are going to a place with "Hershey" in it, diet is not allowed to exist! :)
