Visit the Cousins From Texas

We really enjoyed out visit with the Drennan family. They live in Texas and come to visit a couple of times a year. Alyssa really loves to spend time with her girl cousins~ AnnaCarroll and Katie.

Christmas Eve

On Christmas Eve every year the kids go out before bedtime and feed Santa's Reindeer.

I told the kids to go to bed. When I went to check on them Alyssa had made her a pallet on the floor next the the vent. Poor thing was sweating so bad. I had to wake her up to move her.

Christmas Party with Alyssa

I had taken both yesterday and today off from work to attend the kids parties at school. What fun filled days we had.
Alyssa had a PJ Pizza party! They made crafts, ate pizza then watched the Polar Express!

Nanny and Papa were able to come too! They had a fun... I think.

Saturday I dressed the kids up and took them to see Santa. Alyssa was very excited and knew just what she wanted to ask for. Trent (who is on the fence with the whole Santa thing) was alittle forced to go. He is afraid not to believe, because if You Don't Believe.... You Don't Receive. Right?

After leaving Santa we went by my parent's house to see my grandmother before she went back home. Here are some great pictures of them putting candy canes on the tree and visiting with great-grandma.

Then we made a last minute decision to travel to Lake Lanier to see their light display. It was really cool. They had alot of neat lights. I took some pictures but they didn't turn out so great. At the end of the 7 miles of lights they had a huge bonfire to roast marshmallows.

Eventhough they charged $60 per car.......It was great to have that experience with the kids at least once.

Alyssa story.....

Sunday Brett, Alyssa and I went to the store and on the way back stopped at McDonalds's. We had originally stopped for ice cream for Alyssa but when we started to order she wanted some chicken nuggets instead. So Brett ordered her a kids meal with nuggets and him a quarter pounder meal. We got our food and I passed Alyssa's bag back to her. As we are driving down the road the opens her bag and yells, "OK.... who ordered the freaking hamburger." Stunned Brett and I looked at each other trying not to laugh. Apparently she saw the quarter pounder box that Brett's burger came in then saw her nugget box and thought it was too a hamburger. Brett quickly explained that that didn't sound very nice coming from a 6 year old.... But it was funny nonetheless.....

Also... while cleaning under Alyssa's bed last week I found a note from her teacher on why she had to "move her clip" that day..... Alyssa don't you know sweetgirl that momma always will find out.
