Enjoying the Holidays

Continuing our Christmas adventures we went to see Santa!  They had a sleigh ride and lots of fun activities and food!

 The twins talked to him forever.  He was very sweet and patient with them while they nervously told him their Christmas wishes.

 This age is just the best!

 We went to see the live nativity at Billy Graham Library.

 Ellie and I went to a Teddy Bear tea with some friends.  This event was so easy and fun!  They had so much to do for the kids and bottomless coffee and mimosas for the moms!

We went on a few fun adventures with friends including lunch and climbing with Bobo's sweet friend Bennett.

 The elves had us doing all sorts of fun things too.  They brought all the stuff to decorate cookies and even made a few themselves for us.

 The kids love being in the kitchen and especially baking.
We were supposed to have friends over, but with all the nasty bugs going around they had to cancel.  We made the most of it and had a great family night!  We made Christmas guacamole, Chicken Poblano Soup and Peppermint brownies.

 Ryan and I have been trying to teach kids the value of serving others and joined our church one day in making over 600 sandwiches for the homeless.  They loved this and had lots of good questions regarding the cause.
 Overall I think we have had a great holiday season.  Really trying to do all the fun things, while also taking the time to slow down appreciate all that we have.
