So, normally I would be posting today about our latest holiday outing. My plan was for us to get our Christmas tree this weekend and to give you an inside scoop on where we went. Unfortunately, sickness got in the way. Little Sparkles got a nasty cold and was down for the count the whole weekend. So, no Christmas tree for us and no post for the blog!
I didn’t want to skip my post all together because there are so many great things happening this time of year. So, instead of me giving you the details on a holiday happening, I thought I would give you a brief tour of fun holiday events that some of our favorite Connecticut bloggers have been writing about.
Two local bloggers did posts on their family Christmas tree outings. Julie at A Year with Mom and Dad went to Konefal Farm in Middlefield, CT. Cut your own trees at this destination are a bargain at $25. (photo credit www.jonesfamilyfarms.com)
You can also check out the post from Carissa at Buy Locally CT on her family’s visit to Jones Tree Farm in Shelton, CT. Their trees are a bit more pricey at $63, but they do come with a cute little ornament.
Curious about the new Holiday Lights event at Lake Compounce? Well, a bunch of bloggers visited this seasonal destination on Friday and wrote about their outing. Below are links to their posts:
- Adventures with My Boys
- A Year with Mom and Dad
- The Budge Bunch
- Connecticut Bloggers
- The Weights Over
Also, don’t forget to check out even more family fun by visiting our 2012 Holiday Activities page. Coming up this week are lots of great events including the Holiday Stroll in Blue Back Square, Hartt School’s Nutcracker around Town, and The Wadsworth Atheneum’s Family Day. So much to check out!
