As I drove home from Waco on Thursday, I passed Santa's Wonderland. To my shock, Jonathan agreed to take us on Friday night. First mistake, we didn't leave until 7pm. Second mistake, we didn't factor in the one HOUR line we had to wait in. We didn't get home until after 11pm!
It was neat but, sadly, we were all too tired and grumpy to enjoy it.
I don't think I'll ever get Jonathan to agree to go back.
Saturday morning, the neighborhood next door had real snow! We piggybacked with Aubrey and Brynley to get in on the action. I couldn't get this photo to rotate. We kept laughing at Ace because he kept falling and sliding on the ice.
He was such a BULLY! Once we taught him how to throw a snowball, he was pelting everyone! Jonathan's jeans were soaked and he was throwing them at complete strangers (luckily, they thought it was funny). Yes, his face has mud all down the right side! The edges of the snow turned to mush and he dove into it a couple of times.
Saturday night, we headed to Granny's for our annual Christmas get-together with about 30 to 40 of our aunts, uncles, cousins and second cousins. Brookelyn started reading to Ace. They were soooo cute.
Waiting to open presents on Uncle Allen's lap.
All the fun made us ready for Christmas. Ace's presents are purchased and I've scheduled the delivery of his big boy bed next week! Now, if he will just kick this awful cold that has settled into his chest, everything will be Merry.

I was thinking of that Santa's Wonderland place just the other night. I remember driving past it all the time on my way between Waco & Houston. I was wishing I knew of a place like that here we could take the kids too.
Love those shots of Ace playing in the snow. You'll have to come visit us sometime in the winter and he can play in all of our snow!
