Santa Claus is coming to town

This weekend was such a whirlwind.  We had a lot on the agenda.  I am loving time with my little family right now.  Both Landry and Hayden are at great ages.  I look forward to our weekends together so much.

On Friday, we found Choo-Choo sitting on the couch with the remote waiting on family movie night.  We made homemade pizza and watched Rudolph.  

Saturday morning we were up bright and early to headed to Bass Pro for our picture with Santa.  Tim had this great idea to get there when it opened and be first in line and be done.  Well, it seems everyone else in Grapevine had that same idea.  When we got there they were passing out time cards to come back at a certain time, so we walked around Bass Pro and waited on our time slot.  Not actually a bad place to be stuck for an hour.  We got a snack, watched the fish tank and sat in recliners to pass the time.  Hayden ended up falling asleep sitting in his stroller, so when we were waiting in line, I got a little nervous about waking him up.  He is usually my easy going child and doesn’t mind strangers, so I figured passing him off to Santa would be no big deal.  Boy was I wrong!  He screamed the minute I handed him over!  But, we got a funny picture and one I laugh at every time I see it.

After we went home and rested we went over to Tim’s parents’house and ventured out to Prairie Lights.  I was so excited to do this!  I haven’t been in a few years and I just remember loving all the lights.  Well, this idea would have been great except that everyone else in the metroplex had the same idea! We waited in our car for over three hours!  Luckily we had a fun car full of people and Hayden slept, so it wasn’t too bad.  We just know next time to go when it opens.  

Sunday, Landry went outside and played on her scooter.  She won this in her fundraiser and loves it!  She had to sale so many items to win it, and she worked hard to do it.  I’m not going to lie, it is really fun!  We live on a street with a hill going down towards the end, so we went up and down that hill multiple times.    

Sunday night, we went and celebrated our favorite red head.  My friend Hilary bought all the little girls these shirts to match the mommies and Landry loves it!

My mom hosted the family over to her house to celebrate my Grammy.  My Grammy is one wonderful woman.  She is the epitome of the matriarch of our family.  She is a Godly woman, she knows how to shoot a gun and she’s in the Women’s Bowling Hall of Fame!  Love celebrating her and the life she has lead thus far.  

Such a fabulous weekend.  I’m so excited for this week.  After this week I’m off work for the rest of the year!  I have some fun stuff planned with my kiddos and hubby!
