December is here and for those who haven’t already been in the holiday spirit since October, you can officially start celebrating! As always, there is so much to do in North Texas this time of year and we wanted to show you what we consider to be the top 20 options for your family. We especially want to invite you to our own holiday event! Santa’s Open House will be this Sunday. Your kiddos will get a free professional photo with Santa & Mrs. Claus.
