We have an annual tradition – to go downtown Seattle to enjoy the Christmas decorations, crowds and lights. We usually go earlier in the year but I wasn’t able to get away until this weekend.
We started by stopping by to see the decorated gingerbread houses at the Sheraton. This year’s theme was Christmas songs. There were several items that really made us laugh. We loved the Seattle skyline along with the cutaway for Bertha and the tunnel – they had money flowing out – yep definitely a money pit. The other one was the Little Town of Bethlehem – There was ‘no room’ at the Westin so Joseph and Mary had to go to the Sheraton.
Next we walked up to Pacific Place to do some window shopping. We really enjoyed the large nutcrackers on the different levels – especially the ‘Jimi Hendrix’ nutcracker. G noticed the attention to detail and he had the left-handed guitar.
Next we went to Matt’s in the Market – our favorite lunch spot. G had a St Jude’s tuna sandwich and I had the braised beef cheek sandwich. Oooh.. so tender. We followed it with a yummy Candy Bar square for dessert.
We took a stroll through the market which is always fun especially on the gray day with all the seasonal lights. It always gets us in the Christmas mood.
