Christmas week in our house!

We have had a busy and fun week.

Gary is on vacation, so we have been hanging out as a family of four all week long.  It has been awesome.  I am posting a day by day journal of our week for our memories.


Monday we went to see a movie.  The kids both LOVE Alvin & the Chipmunks, so we went to see ChipWrecked.  It was a super cute movie, but I was ready for the squeaking to be over.  The kids had a great time and they sat still the entire time.  And when we got home guess what movie they wanted to watch??  Thank goodness we have multiple TV's in our house.


Tuesday the kids had dentist appointments.  
I love this picture I took of the kids in the waiting room of the dentist office.
The kids both got great reports at the dentist. I am so happy all the brushing is paying off!

We did a bit of last minute shopping on Tuesday also.  It is wild out there.


Wednesday we baked cookies.  Holy mess.  I don't know why, but for some reason the cookie baking didn't go so well.  I guess I didn't let the dough get cold enough.  Whatever...I can't even begin to tell you the issues we had with our baking session.  The kids had a super fun time, and that is all that matters!

See what I mean....the kisses fell though.  I'm a ding bat. They really didn't need to cool on a wire rack.  Dooooh. Anyway. You live and you learn. haha!

Wednesday Night

Wednesday night we went to the Texas Motor Speedway's parade of lights.  It was about a mile long Christmas light display.  The kids were Oooohhing and Ahhhhing like crazy.  It was so fun!


Thursday we decorated the cookies we baked.

The kids had a really fun time!  I pretty much decorated 2 cookies and they did the rest.  I gave them full decorating privileges.   They ate and decorated....

Hayden pretty much ate sprinkles right off the plate.

Layla is a great little cookie decorator.  She had the most fun of all!!

Of course the best part was eating the cookies.

We saved a few cookies for Santa Clause.  

Last night the kids were crazy little heathens.  Gary and I decided to put them to bed early -- 7:00 pm early and they BOTH slept until 7:00 am.  All this Christmas fun caught up to them.

Today is Friday.  

Christmas Eve Eve.  I'm not sure what today holds, but I know for sure Layla and I are giving each other pedicures.  We both need fresh new festive polish on our fingers and toes. 

I hope you have a great day!!
