It wasn't just in Norway (and indeed Ireland) that people were scurrying around, getting all their ducks in a row for the big day. In Hollywood too, all my favorite parent-celebs were spotted out and about with their little hopefuls, doing Christmas-related chores, whether it was making sure Santa got their updated wish-lists, stocking up on groceries or just making sure everyone had their caffeine levels up where they needed to be to handle the holidays!
Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale took sons Kingston, 4, and Zuma, 2, to visit Santa at a local mall in Sherman Oaks, California. Lil Kingston seemed rather jolly to sit on Santa's lap, while Zuma a little less than impressed with the encounter!
Mark Wahlberg took two of his four kids out for some last-minute Christmas shopping. The former rapper was spotted braving the rain with Ella, 7, and Brendan, 2, in Beverly Hills the other day. Marks wife Rhea Durham and the couples two other kids, Michael, 4, and 11-month-old daughter Grace, was not seen out with the threesome.
Jessica Alba and her little mini-me, Honor, was stocking up on some Christmas goodies in Trader Joe's...
... while Pete Wentz and Bronx, 2, were seen making a Christmas-Eve Starbucks run.
Adorable mother/daughter duo Courtney and Coco were snapped heading into a private holiday party on Christmas eve. How big did little Coco seem to have gotten all of a sudden?!
