Holiday Season Begins

We headed to Sharon, PA with friends (and next door neighbors) Candice and Todd for a fun-filled day at Kraynek's, Quaker Steak & Lube, The Winner, Daffin's and Reyer's.

Kraynek's was amazing! The Christmas trees and accompanying displays are magical. Isabella just loved it (so we'll definitely have to make a trip to Akron's Holiday Tree Festival). The toy store there had everything and we got a lot of shopping done!

The Daffin's Chocolate Village was appetizing so we, of course, bought tons of candy to kept us filled up during our day.

We finally found Isabella's Christmas dress at The Winner. I would go into details because I want to share pics later on. All I'll say is that it converts to a summer dress very easily.

The guys were disappointed with Reyer's being the big "shoe guys" they are but lunch satisfied their cravings!

What a great day! Enjoy the first Christmas video of the season. They will be many to follow.

We love shopping in Sharon and have done it for years; usual an annual November thing!! Our favorite is Kraynaks. We can just spend hours in there! Daffin's chocolates are just delicious.
Have you guys ever traveled a bit further down the main road into Hermitage? We go to the Shenango Valley Mall there. It's a lot of fun too! Glad you guys had such a good time.

What a great start to the Holiday Season! Looks like you all had tons of fun! I'd be afraid to go broke in a place like that, but what better place to start your celebrations. Izzy definitely looked like she had a blast.
