We have a couple of traditions around here at Christmas time (and that list is growing each season). For example, the last few years we've always gone to the Gaylord Texan to walk around and experience all the Christmas magic! The year I was pregnant with Finley we went to the ICE exhibit with Kyle's parents and it was fun, but kind of pricey...and you know, kind of cold! The Gaylord is a fantastic hotel that is just so much more. It's so neat! The whole inside is designed to look like parts of Texas. There is even a Riverwalk! They have several restaurants, shops, a spa, and so much more. Every year at Christmas they have all kind of festivities. We just went and walked around and looked at everything...and we were there for almost two hours! We did get a smoothie and gingerbread cookie from one of the cafes. The girlies really enjoyed looking at all the lights and decorations. When we drove up and saw all of the lights Finley said, "Baby Jesus!" She's starting to associate all this Christmas madness with Jesus, so that's good!
We also enjoy going to the galleria to watch the ice skaters and look at the big tree! We took the girls one Tuesday afternoon, and although it was crowded like crazy, we had a lot of fun!
We also had our playgroup Christmas Cookie Decorating Party a couple of weeks ago. The cookies were a big hit with my girlies!
