Just testing to see if I can figure out how to do this. I will work on adding pics later!
For Thanksgiving we drove to Midland Monday to allow the girls to spend the week playing with their cousins. Tuesday we drove up to Lubbock to enjoy the Polar Express. Kali and Brynn along with their cousins Callen, Case, Blayke, Peyton and Parker all dressed in their PJs and boarded the train to the North Pole. The Lubbock train far exceeds the Grapevine experience we had last year. We were served amazing hot chocolate and sugar cookies on our way to the North Pole. At the North Pole, with lights and Santa's house we picked up Santa and the elves and headed back to the depot. Santa came around and spoke with each child, posing for pics and giving them each a bell. Brynn was terrified but loved the bell. She enjoys the idea of Santa and watching him from afar. Kali is finally to a point she is not afraid- yipee maybe I will get a picture this year.
Wednesday was cooking day and suppose to be Mimi's christmas picture day but the photographer called in sick. I got to get a massage and facial as early present from the padres.

Thursday- Turkey Day- Good times taking pictures that morning since the photographer was feeling better. Uncle JP and Callen complained the most! Lunch was delicious, the Aggie basketball team beat 13 Clemson and the Cowboys won. A win that night over t.u. is the only thing that would have made the day unbelievable. Brynn even stayed up until 11pm to see if the Ags were going to pull it out. That made for a long Friday!
Fun times were had by all!
Saturday- Mimi, Kali, Brynn, Peyton and I went to the Museum of the Southwest to look at the gingerbread houses, Christmas trees and trains. We played hard. We went to Mimi and Paco's to rest briefly before going to Peyton's 3rd b-day party at the jumping house. The girls played long and hard (brynn with no nap) before jumping in the car at 5 to head back to Dallas.


  1. Great post! I'm so proud of you for giving it a try! Let me know if you have any questions. I use blogger to post, and that can be a little painful at times with pictures. MS Writer is much better if you can get it to work. Sounds like a wonderful Thanskgiving!!
