We had a great Christmasy morning, and our house is starting to look more festive by the day. The kids wake up every morning eager to check in on all their advent calendars, and we talk about all the festive activities we have coming up on the calendar. Orelia is just about bursting with excitement this month, and Bennett is really joining in on the fun this year. When he saw Orelia's flannel Santa pillowcase, he asked for his own. When he saw Orelia's small Christmas tree (that she had from last year), he asked for his own. So when I put twinkle lights in Orelia's room today, I knew to grab a second set for Bennett's room straight away. We are a Christmas-obsessed family and I'm loving every second!

There was a huge balloon installation that felt like you were on another planet.
The Color Factory had some cameras throughout where you could take photos and scan your ticket to have them emailed automatically to you. This was our best attempt.
Bennett loved finding the smashed balls and removing them to the nearby trash can. Ha! He's nothing if not consistent.
The Color Factory isn't really a kids place, but it's made for all ages. I wasn't sure if the kids would get much out of it, but Bennett especially has talked about it every day since we went (two weeks ago). He is begging to go back, and wants to take everyone he loves. Sadly, the Color Factory is closing in San Francisco soon; it was only open for a few months. I am so, so glad we got a chance to visit and make the most of this unique city we are lucky to live near.
