Before the year ended, Jeremiah & I went to the Museum of Ice Cream with his family as a gift to his parents from us.
We thought it was going to be exactly like our first visit, but it was very different.
To enter, you go through the gift shop instead of walking down the stairs to the ice cream vault.
Christmas in the Park
This was the only holiday tradition we almost weren’t able to do this year because we had so many other things going on. However, we were able to pull it off last minute! It was open until Christmas day, so right after my family Christmas party, Jeremiah & I headed downtown to get the snowman hot chocolate.
I was worried that Jeremiah & I wouldn’t be able to do this tradition. I’ve mentioned it a couple of times that this is my favorite holiday tradition. We normally go to the one in San Jose, but they didn’t have as many time slots as they did last year, so we went to the one in SF.
I’m not sure if we plan to always go here from now on, but I did think it looked so much more fancy than the venue in San Jose.
Union Square during the Holidays
Every year, Jeremiah & I go to Union Square during the holidays to take a photo with the big tree. For the past 2 years, we always say we’re going to try ice skating there, but every time we went the tickets were sold out for the day. Fortunately, this was finally our year!

The first thing we did, of course, was take a photo with the tree 🎄
Global Winter Wonderland
Over Jeremiah’s birthday weekend, we went to Global Winter Wonderland with his family. They used to be in the South Bay, but they moved up north a couple of years ago. I’ve always wanted to check it out because I think the lit up displays look so pretty.
We went on a Saturday night, but it wasn’t too crowded.
This year I decided to pay tribute to my favorite horror movie by carving Michael Myers! I actually wanted to do it last year, but I was intimidated because I was worried about messing up. I carved Wolverine last year & I thought that was more difficult than this one. I also think my carving last year is still my best one yet.
