LIFE LATELY

Christmas traditions are especially good at sparking nostalgia and the “magic” of the holidays. With a growing family comes growing traditions, and Christmas at Tiny’s No. 5 is where the Almanza family hangs out with Santa. Ever since Sebastian was a little floating squid-potato, we’ve visited Santa at Tiny’s. They roll out a freshly decorated tree, holiday movies, donuts, cider and wine for the adults. Naturally, with two small children, one of which being true chaos in size 7s, we aim to get in early, line up, get our shot with the Big Guy and be out of the parking lot before the big crowds settle in. Years from now, the babies will enjoy the movies and donuts and be a bit more self-sufficient. For now, this works for us. We hope your holiday traditions go as smoothly as this year’s Santa visit. Sebastian and Gigi were absolutely mesmerized by the jolly ‘ole elf. And we came away with cookies and donuts to boot. Happy Holidays, from the Almanza’s.  

Sharing a few photos from earlier this week. December is flying by!
