Christmas Vacation

This week has been a fast paced, jam packed, week full of fun. Ronny has been on vacation all week and we spent the week getting ready for Christmas and spending time with the kids. We started the week off by taking the kids to the North Pole Express. Madison was so good. She sat in my lap the whole time and just looked around and watched all the kids. Mason's favorite part was getting his ticket punched. Every time someone walked by him he wanted them to punch his ticket. He enjoyed getting his bell from Santa and he rang it from the moment he got it until we got home. That is a long time people! :) It was too cold to wear their pajamas that day but Mason didn't even care.

We managed to squeeze in a lunch at Mason's favorite place, McDonald's.

My sister was also off this week. We got to spend some time together shopping and hanging out. The kids have really enjoyed playing with their Jen Jen!

One night, we got the kids bathed and into their pajamas early and took them to Prairie Lights to see all the lights.

Another night we let Mason make a ginger bread house. He decorated it all by himself with little help from us. For every piece of candy that went on his house two went into his mouth. This was our first ginger bread house to ever make, and it's obvious. But, he had fun!

We also took Mason the Ice exhibit at the Gaylord Texan. His favorite part of that was the ice slide and all the trains.

Ronny and I also managed to squeeze in a few date nights and a wrapping party after the kids went to bed. We have really enjoyed having daddy home and spending time together.
