Most of the pictures - still not all - are posted on my Facebook account and will be on my MySpace tonight as well.
Monday Dec 22 - Slept in!!! Then did a tad last minute shopping at Grapevine. Monday night we went to Medevil Times in Dallas. It is like a Dinner Theater where you eat while you watch the Knights fight. Our Knight was the Green Knight (he was the bad guy) so we had to cheer LOUD for him! The kids really enjoyed this. Wonderful experience!
It was really an awesome thing to see it all in motion! Highly recommend this if you ever have the chance.
Tuesday Dec 23 - More shopping, we ate at Rainforest Cafe, and then the guys and Hannah went to watch the Dallas Mavericks play Memphis. They really had a great time and the kids were all excited that the Mavs won!!! It was great to have the means and the time to let the kids experience some events that we normally wouldn't get to do.
Wednesday Dec 24 - was spent at my sister's house relaxing and playing games. That evening instead of a Christmas Eve service at church, we had a family concert and the kids acted out the Christmas Story. Tyler made a great Baby Jesus!
Friday Dec 26 - Shopping Day - kids all had money burning a hole in their pocket and the opportunity to shop at BIG malls was too irresistable! In the afternoon, we had family picture time. It was fun to coordinate clothes and take pictures at the park!
Saturday Dec 27 - Another long day of traveling back to Colorado. However, one advantage to having both my sister and Joel's sister live in Texas is that we often get to see both families when we travel there. So we met Joel's sister Jana and her family at McDonalds in Amarillo for lunch. We decided that everyone needs pictures taken at McDonalds - right?

This weekend has officially "kicked off" the Christmas spirit for our family! Yesterday - Malachi helped out at the hospital "Breakfast with Santa" by being an elf and I took the pictures! It was an incredibly fun time and of course Malachi was adorable!
This afternoon, Kestra got to make her first cake for her cake decorating project in 4-H. The reindeer is still needing his antlers but other than that he is finished!
Tyler had his Christmas program at school Friday night and he was a riot of course!!!
This morning, Hannah sang "Breath of Heaven" in church with one of my close friends from Bible Study Dani Vaughn. It is so hard for me to believe that my "baby" Hannah is now singing in church as a young lady but I am SO very proud of her.
