5 Holiday To-Do's

Tis the Season to get out and soak up the holiday festivities!
Here are a list of 5 fabulous things to go check out or do this December around the Puget Sound:

1. Gingerbread Houses at the Sheraton Hotel, Seattle
  This year is the 20th Anniversary of the Gingerbread Houses and this year's theme is awesome. I won't ruin the fun, but it is definitely worth waiting in line for. Its a free event but if you donate money, all proceeds go to the JDRF foundation that researches the cure for type 1 diabetes. 

2. Christmas Tree's and Teddy Bear Suite at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel, Seattle
   The Christmas tree's inside the fairmont are absolutely gorgeous. On the 3rd floor you can check out their Teddy Bear suite, it's a suite elaborately decorated for Christmas that houses tons of teddy's of all sizes.
3. Ice Skating, Bellevue Downtown Park
  Frozen on top of the Bellevue pond, this ice rink gets packed as Christmas time gets nearer. My advice, go before dinner at around 4 or 5 and bring a skating buddy with you!

4. Snowflake Lane, Downtown Bellevue
 A newer tradition on the Eastside, and happening every night at 7pm. This is a great little show that includes fun Christmas songs, drummer girls & drummer boys, and a flurry of fake snow. It lasts only about 10 to 12 minutes, but it's a ton of fun for everyone.

5. Sledding / Skiing/ Snowboarding, The Summit at Snoqualmie Pass
  Grab your ski's or your sled and get yourself up to the mountain! The best part of living on the Eastside? Snoqualmie Pass is only 40 minutes away! Since the Tubbing Park and Sledding Park was closed, B & I hiked a trail and built our own sled track. 

What are your favorite things to do during the holiday's? Let me know!
