Holiday Fun

WOW!! What a weekend! We went to HollyDazzle Friday night and it was so much fun! They had a cool train you could ride in..the lines were so long Hunter didn't ride but he just liked looking at it! They had a room full where you could make your own chocolate dipped pretzels with lots of other toppings...yum! In the same building they had this hand bell choir. Outside there was a steel drum band playing Christmas music. They was our favorite..We all gathered around and danced. It was so much fun. They were supposed to have fireworks and a pyrotechnic show but it was late because of wind. We went home and got Hunter to bed since we had a big day Saturday. He went and saw Santa Saturday at the mall and also had breakfast with him. (I'll post more of those pics tomorrow) Saturday night, I had a Christmas dinner for my family. We always exchange presents with my aunt since she's out of town for Christmas. Hunter got a Dora the Explorer Christmas DVD and he was mesmerized!! He watched it the entire rest of the night!!

Mike took a picture of his "skinny wife"...I'm enjoying fitting into clothes I haven't for SOME time:) My dad loves to hold Hunter while he's enjoying a movie...Aren't they cute:)
We had nursery at church on Sunday. Mike read Hunter and Christina a story and they loved it. She is so precious! We were supposed to go to Grand Illuminations but went to see my grandmother and Mike's grandparents after church so let Hunter sleep late into the afternoon. We did go but watched the fireworks from the car and that was perfect!! No lines, no rush to leave. We stopped by the park to drive through the lights before going home. They were really pretty and Hunter had fun naming everything. While we were in the car, Hunter counted to 5 all by himself!! We've been working on his alphabet and he knows that now. We say the numbers with him but while looking at the lights, he just counted to 5 on his own!! He did it at home too by himself...I probably scared him to death. Mike and I were laughing histerically we were so proud!! Anyway, the only picures I didn't post were Saturday at the mall and with Santa so I'll post those tomorrow. We had a great time this weekend...but sure next weekend will be even better!!

We fly out this Saturday to Disney for a week....HOORAY!!

Okay, I had to comment one more time because I popped on here and heard the Christmas Canon by SSO. Oh my goodness!! Canon D was our wedding march and I love any version of it. This one is just absolutely gorgeous!! I'm going to have to use it on my blog one day as Christmas gets closer.
