Last weekend, Grammy and Gramps treated all of us to the North Pole Express in Grapevine! Thank you SO much! We had an absolute BLAST!!!
Uncle Dan & little Ben
Aunt Dani and her sassy Savi
Dani and Sav were having a love/hate relationship this day…as Sav was competing for Uncle Dan’s affections
Auntie Jess and her Drew
Uncle Ed, Ebud, and Joe
Grammy was feeling festive! LOVED her candy cane headband
Gramps and Ethan
Giving my little guy some sugah. (E)
Umm…okay, okay… time for a haircut, boys! I love this pic!
So awesome (yet very deflating) that we were able to sit on a patio in mid-December and enjoy a wonderful lunch! (I’m actually sitting on my patio right now, in shorts and a T-shirt, composing this blog post while the kids play in the backyard in flip flops. GRRRRR)
Can you tell how much these kids are loved? SO incredibly blessed with amazing families.
Andrew and his LOVE of penguins! Look how proud he is to stand in front of these dudes… presh.
Yah… this picture isn’t creepy at all! bwahahahaha. LOVE these 2 nerds, in front of the “sleeping Santa”.
Ben and Dan
So, the kids love taking pictures…these next few billion images, are kid-taken, mom-edited.
LOVE that the Grapevine North Pole Express added the tricycle arena so the kiddos could burn some anxious energy while waiting for their train ride.
Of course the dudes were all OVER the Thomas the train engines…
LOVE this pic of Aunt Dani and her quaddies (E, S, D, A, B)
The whole crew, waiting for the little pre-show to begin. (Here’s a nice tip: Sit on the farthest side, when looking at the stage, its on the left. That section loads first for the train and you can walk all the way to the front)
Savi and Grammy
Ed, Ethan, and Jess
Diddy and Benny
Daddy and Andrew
LOVE this pic of these guys walking through the Christmas tree maze and snow blowers!
Trusty ‘ole Conductor Bob punching tickets yet again
The old folks and Ben (the old soul---fits right in)
SOOOOO much excitement! Grammy, Andrew, Sav
Joe, Dids, Me, and Ethan (my Mama’s boy)
LOVE. Joe and his Dad. Smiling because we are sitting in the nice comfy seats of the first class car!
Oh, the magic… (Drew)
Sav stopped one of the carolers and asked her to sing with her. Savannah’s song request?~ “Jesus Loves Me.”
Melt. My. Heart.
The BIG man and the kids! (S, E, A, B)
SOOOOOOOO excited about their bells… (Mom and Dad… not so excited. Heh, heh)
Sav asking Mrs. Claus about her lipgloss……….. of course.
And I have no shame in confessing that as SOOOON as we stepped off the train, our group SPRINTED to the nearest sports bar, on Main Street, to watch the Heisman Trophy Ceremony.
What an incredible ending to a wonderful night!
We are SO proud of you, Johnny! Gig ‘EM.
Classy guy right there.
Cannot WAIT to attend the Cotton Bowl with my main squeeze!
