Christmas Fun!

So here is a long blog with lots of photos......kinda like all my other blogs- lol

We first went to Dickens of a Christmas.....twice. First without Daddy, then again with Daddy.  It's the Christmas festival that downtown Mckinney holds every year. The girls had fun with the petting zoo, and each made an ornament (twice), and loved the hot chocolate and funnel cake and corndogs.  Madelynn heard 'ho, ho, ho' over the loudspeaker and kept asking "Mommy, who is doing all that ho-ing?  We have to find who is ho-ing!"

Then, we went to our HOA Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony.  They had alot of crafts there as well. The girls ran around another petting zoo, ate hot chocolate and cookies, played in a bell concert and took pictures with Mrs. Claus (fyi, much shorter line than with Mr. Claus.)  In the end we went on a fun carriage ride.  It was warm that night, but the Madelynn and Annie loved wearing their hats. Such fashionistas- lol!

I woke up this week to screams of snow and "icing."  Evidently, we had gotten a small dusting of snow and the girls couldn't wait to get out and try eating it- lol!

We also made some Christmas bells for our neighbors this year. The girls were so excited to be using permanent markers.....I had to watch like a hawk, but most things ended up unscathed.  *sniff*  My girls are growing up!

Well, we still have more Christmas activities planned. I really love doing all these fun things with the kids.  Hope you all are having fun with your own Christmas plans!
