Christmas Break

We have stayed busy this first week of our Christmas break!

Building closet forts...

Kemah for sweet Tracey and Robin's birthdays!

We also went to an event a local church holds called Christmas Train.

A miniature old fashioned train takes you through Christmas displays and over 175,00 lights telling you about the gift of Jesus. It was very cute, but with the wait of almost 3 hours (we didn't realize until after the tickets were purchased), I don't think it will be a tradition we keep.

Deacon was out by the time we boarded the train.

Yesterday we drove to my friend Stephanie's house for some cookie decorating!

With over 7 dozen cookies and a variety of icing, sprinkles, and marshmallows, the kids were in heaven!

Destiny had more fun painting Stephanie and her mouth than her cookies!

After the kids had their fill of munching and decorating, the grown-ups took a turn at the fun.

I now know where Steph gets her OCD from...her mom at one point said she wished she had tweezers to add the sprinkles onto her The apple doesn't fall far from the tree! hehe

I think the kids probably ate more than they decorated, but were all able to bag up their goodies with enough for Santa too.

...well Deacon and Landon may have to share with their siblings.
When we got home Brian had gotten a wild hair to do some baking, so he and Carson worked on peanut butter cookies, fudge, cookie bars, and attempted divinity (which I threw out this morning b/c it didn't quite work).

After all of these holiday sweets, I definitely know what my New Year's Resolution is going to be!
