Polar Express

This weekend we rode the Polar Express in Palestine, TX and it was a BLAST! A COLD BLAST! It got down to around 28 degrees and VERY windy! But the train ride was a little warmer and the girls loved it. We sang Christmas carols, had hot chocolate & rice crispy treats, read the Polar Express, Santa and his elves got on and passed out bells to all the kids and took pics, the girls got to wear their PJ's and we even learned a lot about a steam train in the process. It was a lot of fun and here are a few pictures from the weekend.

Last Game & Tammy's Wedding

Where do I start? Today was a wild and crazy day. I started the day by running to the store to get 2 pair of tights, then home to get ready for soccer, we had the last soccer game of the season at noon, over to the pizza party for the team to get our trophy's, then Skyler and I left daddy and Madison to go get Skyler's hair done for Tammy's wedding. Which might I add turned out very cute. Then home to get mommy and the girls dressed and ready in about 30 minutes. That was the fastest I have ever shaved my legs in my life! :o) Then the four of us headed for the chapel for pictures before the wedding, had the wedding, then more pictures, then the reception and now we are finally home. It is 11:30pm and everyone is in bed and my feet are KILLING ME. But we had a wonderful time. Both of the girls walked down the aisle, even though they were not together and Madison had her binky in her mouth they still looked so cute. The reception was a lot of fun and the girls LOVED the dance floor. There was no getting either one of them off of it and when we finally left they were so worn out they didn't even move or make a sound on the way home. Her are pics of the day, sorry there are so many.

My sister, her husband and children are in town for the wedding in my nephew Zachary came to the soccer game to watch Skyler play. notice my grandmaw sitting behind them, doesn't she look wonderful for 85 years old? It is not all just looks either she could run circles around me. I just hope I am as active and healthy as she is when I am 85.
