Christmas Events

We have been enjoying all the Christmas Events. Here are a few of the things we are doing. In case you live in San Antonio or gives you ideas for where you live. We went to a Stone Oak Festival where they had 40,000 lbs of snow. It was kind of cool. The closest we have ever seen to snow. There they had rides and a horse drawn carriage ride that of course Addisyn loved and when it was over we had to leave cause she just wanted to do that over and over. We also went to a Nutcracker play at the Magik Children's Theater. It was a hit. I was a bit nervous but all the kids loved it. Even an 18 month old. We were in the 2nd row and so close to all the action. It was not your normal nutcracker. It was very funny.
We also went to Bass Pro Shop where they have a very organized free photo with Santa. You think free and you think Crazy but wow, they were so organized and gave you number cards so you were not waiting in line forever. They also had different activites on the weekend. We went and they had decorating cookies. They also had a remote control car you could drive, shooting range and of course that store is just cool to walk around in the 1st place. It was a great time. We did not get a picture of Addisyn on Santa this year. She is not a fan of him this year. She does know he is going to bring her Rainbow Dash.
We also went Caroling at a nursing home and that was so much fun. They were so sweet and loved to see our girls. Addisyn loves to sing, "We wish you a Merry Christmas". I hope to do it again next year.
I had MOPS and that is more for me but it makes me really want to make sure my girls know the real meaning of Christmas. With all the presents involved I really want them to know it is to celebrate Jesus's birthday 1st and far most. I think Addisyn grasps that concept. We have been on a tight budget this year with Brady being in the construstion field but we made sure to make it a point to give to some families we adopted cause although it has been tight, it is so more important to give then to receive and we are blessed with what we have.
We also went downtown to this wonderful new hotel they build and had storytime with Santa. Addisyn was scared of Santa there too but Cambry took a picture on his lap.
We are going to hit up Sea World on Wedsnday and then we have Brady's sister in town so we are always busy then. I am just so blessed to stay at home and do these fun activites with my girls.
