Decorations are up and the Christmas festivities have begun! We LOVE this time of year at our house! We got the house all decorated the day after Thanksgiving and this weekend was filled with lots of Christmas activities!!
On Friday, we started the day by going to Northpark and letting the kids each pick a kid off of the angel tree. We let them both pick out a needed item and a toy for the kids they picked. They were a little disappointed that we didn't get to give the gifts to the kids and just had to drop them off with the volunteers there. Friday evening, we went with Collin's family to the North Pole Express in Grapevine. This was such a cute and fun experience. The kids had a blast. We rode the train, got bells from Mrs. Clause, got Santa's special "frosty chocolaty snowball milk", wrote letters to Santa, and got to sit in Santa's lap and take a picture! I would def recommend this to anyone looking for a fun Christmas activity. However, you will have to wait until next year because it is completely sold out this year!
On Saturday morning the fun continued at church. We had our annual Breakfast with Santa event. It was so cute! We had a pancake breakfast, Christmas story time, built a toy in Santa's workshop, and took another picture with Santa and Mrs. Clause. Someone decided right we we got to the front of the line for Santa that she had to go potty too bad to take a quick picture so only Maddox and Brooklyn participated this time. This was a great event and I know one we will look forward to every year!
We have a few other Christmas things coming up but have already been having a blast celebrating!!
