What a weekend! Busy yet so much fun!
Kenzie is in love with Christmas lights. She ohhh’s and ahhh’s as we pass houses with lights. She points out her window and giggles. As more and more people are putting their lights up,there’s even more to look at. Friday night after dinner, we decided to drive to the Herr’s Factory to look at the light display that they put up. It was a great night, filled with Christmas music on the radio, and pretty lights to see. Kenzie loved it! It was raining, so we didn’t get a chance to get out and walk around, but still so worth it. Here are some pictures that we captured!
Saturday, we spent the morning doing laundry and cleaning up the house. We were hoping to get the outside decorated, but ran out of time! We’re hoping to get it done some time this week so that McKenzie has time to enjoy them before the holidays are over. As an aside, I have never been a fan of lawn decorations at Christmas and I refuse to get a blow-up one, but a simple light up snow man or reindeer may be in our future. Kenzie would love it, since she’s obsessed with Frosty!
A-Ra, Jessica’s Aunt, spoiled her by buying her every Christmas movie possible. We’ve watched a few of them, but Frosty is her favorite! She marches around the house they way Frosty and his crew marches around town. Her stomping is hilarious…she only marches with one foot. It’s adorable!
Saturday evening, we went to dinner to celebrate my Mom’s birthday. It was a great evening had by all and we are lucky to have her in our life. After dinner, we stopped at a local creamery that makes homemade ice cream. Kenzie’s patience was starting to wear thin, so I downloaded the JibJab Elf Dance App. I quickly snapped pictures of everyone and created an elf dance sketch. She loved it! It kept her laughing for the rest of the evening! Oh technology! I highly recommend this distraction technique!
On Sunday, we took McKenzie to have breakfast with Santa and Mrs. Claus. From a distance, Kenzie thought Santa was the coolest. She would point to him, smile and wave. Up close, she didn’t care for him too much! She didn’t scream, but was really unsure. Look at her clenched little fists. I think Mrs. Claus was our saving grace! Very cute little breakfast put on by our local volunteer fire house.
It started snowing around 11 yesterday and didn’t stop until the evening. Then we had bouts of freezing rain and sleet overnight.
We spent the day making cookies with my Mother-in-law, Mom and sister. It was such a nice way to spend a cold, winter day. There is more baking in store, but we had to call it quits so that we could get home before the roads got too bad.
Kenzie is currently spending the day at home with Brian and loving life! I can’t even stand how cute these pictures are!
Hope everyone had a great week!
