christmas - take 1

we've already celebrated christmas part 1 with the grimes' side of the family and we had SO much fun!!! last sunday, we got up early, headed to mimi & pops in our pjs, and played ALL day!! we celebrated christmas with riding the train, wearing rudolf noses, playing with our new toys, watching movies, having a picnic, working on "construction projects", decorating cookies, and of course, more playing!!!

 there's nothing better than having a choo-choo train just your size to ride at mimi & pops!!!! can you say - spoiled?!?!!?
 talking to cuzins' on the walkie talkies

 our own little rudolf
 building race car tracks!
 being goofy!
 watching veggie tales on uncle jon's phone
 mimi & pops with all the grandbabies
 construction worker cade with his daddy's cowboy vest from when he was little
 aunt missy and tay with her new baby doll
 construction workers beckham & court

 hard at work and then it was picnic time!

 YUM!!! sugar cookie time!

what a FUN day celebrating christmas and family!! after naps, we headed to bass pro to partake in all of their fun christmas activities like making ornaments, riding the merry go round, and running ALL over that place!! we had such a fun day! thanks for hosting mimi & pops!!! love, love, love our family time together with everyone!!
today (Tuesday), i had the grand idea to head over to the fw childrens' museum to watch polar express in our jammies. well, let's just say that was an epic failure. i failed to remember (since it's been YEARS since i'd been to the movie there) that they play an intro to their 100's of speakers behind the screen, scare all the kids with how LOUD they can be, and then show the helicopter movie that just about scares everybody!! and this was all BEFORE polar express even started!! court was done, cade and tay were done, and beckham could have cared less because he was chowing down on lunch. walker and bo and lindsey met us there, and poor things - they were the only ones that stayed to enjoy the movie. so - note to self - we will need to be MUCH older to enjoy that theater ever again. mel and i decided next year we will host our own polar express day at a house where we are all safe and there are no loud noises. but, we did enjoy playing all over the fun muesum - it's always a fun time!! :)

 playing with the life-size lite bright
