Holiday Craziness Begins…

Reprinted in the blog with permission by the author (me) from an email that was distributed today:

Hello!

If you haven’t received an email like this from me before, I like to put together a list of fun holiday events for kids every year. It may seem too early to think about the holidays already but there are a lot of fun opportunities that I thought everyone would like to know about in advance. Events are listed chronologically and I have noted which events we will be attending if you want to join us. Please feel free to forward this on and let me know if there is something you recommend that’s not on this list!
Happy (almost) Holidays…!
