It is taking me a long time to write this post, my apologies.

One of the most anticipated parts of our weekend for me was a trip to Magnolia Market. It was a special day called Christmas at the Silos. We were not the only ones who were there. It was packed. This was our second trip. You can see our first trip with lots of inside the shop photos and the outdoor space here.

We started our visit at the obligatory #MILESTOMAGNOLIA sign. Two sweet girls took our photo for us.

Inside the actual store there was a lot going on. It was just after opening but the lines to check out were already long. Here is a hint for busy days: look for an employee with an iPad if you have small items that don’t break and are paying with a debit card. They can check you out and there is virtually no line.

Right inside the front door of the store there is a seasonal display. Last time we went it was open books flying away. This time beautiful ornaments made of paper hanging.

They were beautiful.

Because of the Christmas at the Silos celebrations there were lots of kid friendly activities that were all free and perfect for the little ones. Sweet Lucy loved the train ride, twice. There was face painting, The Polar Express on the stage screen, Christmas books being read aloud, ornaments to decorate, and pictures with Santa.

Here is the best picture we got with Lucy and Santa. She needed Mom and Dad in order to endure the process.

There were lots of photo opportunities set up. I convinced Lucy to take her picture with me, sort of.

The gardens were great. It was fun seeing what is growing right now in central Texas.

While the kids were waiting for Santa, I stood in this line for the Silos Bakery.

A sweet girl gave me the order form when I was way back in line.

Little did I know that after being in line 25 minutes a cute young girl came and put this sign up. I thought I was almost in…

Inside the bakery it was just like I hoped. White subway tile, wood floor, rustic beams, the cupcakes…

I tried several and think my favorite was campfire, or maybe winter wonderland, or possibly strawberry. I did mention that I tried several.

It was a great trip even with the crowd. Everyone was so nice and there was plenty to keep everyone busy.

Thanks for following along on our visit.

I hope you have a wonderful holiday season filled with family and friends.

Blessings,

Karen
