It’s Christmas Eve Eve Eve Eve Eve!
We’re wrapping up everything fun and festive left to do this season right now. Here are a few pics to prove it…
We were down on our square and stopped for a pic in the sleigh. I love McKinney, TX year around, but she sure shines in December! Our light parade was rained out a few weeks ago, but they’ve rescheduled it for TONIGHT! If you’re local, come on!! The parade starts at 7:00!
Smiles for dayssssss 🙂
Our 3rd Annual Framily Carriage Ride started off with Mexican food. This is one of my VERY favorite traditions!!
Twelve happy people about to board their carriage in beautiful Highland Park!
Before our carriage pulled up, we visited the horses on this carriage.
Erika and I love any sort of Christmas tradition 🙂 .
Love this guy so much!!
Everyone wanted to pet the horses!
Madeley loves YaYa!
When you’re trying to take a pic with your girl and your boy jumps in the way…
…ahhhhh! There she is!! I love that she loves her Boston hat 🙂 .
Sweet Ebby Lee!
All aboard! It’s so hard to get 8 kids to smile at the same time 😉 .
The lights never disappoint in Highland Park!
On Tuesday night after dinner, we loaded up and went to Walmart so that the kids could all buy each other a gift. One parent stayed in the car with three kids (and watched A Christmas Story) while the other parent took the other kiddo into the store where they could spend $20 on gifts for their siblings (all three under $20). Then, we switched. The kids had so much fun doing this!! I was so surprised by what they picked for each other and can’t wait until Christmas Day when they get to exchange their goodies…
…I took Madeley and Kensington in one at a time (and Andrew took in Ashby and Smith). Madeley knew from the get go that she wanted to buy three stuffed animals for her three big siblings. She was so excited to pick them out!
About to go inside with K for her shopping!
So, that’s what’s been going on around here lately. We’ve been having a wonderful holiday season, but please know that I understand many of you have not. I have a prayer journal, and it is filled with people who are having a really hard time right now (including any of you who have asked for prayers). For those of you who are hurting right now, please know that I am praying for you. I am so sorry for whatever has transpired in your life this season, and my earnest prayer this morning is that it passes. From the bottom of my heart, God bless each and every one of you. xo
