Christmas Wrap Up!

The house is still a mess, toys still everywherre today we just took it easy and enjoyed our new toys. I have lost my husband to the xbox, the kids to their many games and toys, but that is okay it gives me time to play with my new camera, on the computer or playing with my new Kindle..FUN.


We had a white Christmas first one in our area since 1975 so Braden proclaimed it a Christmas miracle.

The Great Wolf Lodge, Grapevine

We made our first trip to The Great Wolf Lodge in Grapevine, Texas this weekend. It definetly won't be our last trip. It was so much fun. A grat family get away to just enjoy each other. We got there on Friday and we didn't leave till Sunday. It was so nice being in one place not having to drive. We were never bored. They had a game that was called Magiquest that went all thru eight floors of the hotel kids and Matt loved it. The waterpark was really good and had two family waterslides that we all went on together. The kids and I will never get on one of them again...even Braden who is my dare devil said it was super scary. Food was good, fun was wonderful, service was above and beyond, family time was beyond great!

Christmas Fun

Got together for a Christmas party today. I will be posting some fun Christmas foods soon. Had to share the pic of the kids in their hats. More pics in my flickr including some of the fun "santa suit game" which the kids all took turns being santa and getting their suit stuffed with balloons.

I can't even blame anyone else

When Braden was younger he hated loud noises, loud toys because of his sensory issues so we didn't get them often. He has gotten over that but for the most part we just don't have a lot of annoying toys, etc. Well this weekend while Britt and I were in Branson we found a penguin it plays Chistmas Carols, waddles and says Merry Christmas. Braden loves penguins (hence the pajamas he is wearing). We brought it home and oh is it annoying so so annoying and he loves loves loves it. No sensory issues showing here as we heard it again and again and again last night. Just when it is about on my last nerve and I am 2 seconds from telling him to quit playing it he smiles like he did in this picture and I just down my tylenol an let the fun continue. My husband has also pointed out that I am the one that bought it...several times.
