Holiday Fun

Whew! Like many of you we had a busy, busy holiday season! We had a wonderful time with family and did lots of fun activities together!

One of the cool things we did was a family outing with Papaw and Ba-maw Carolyn to Moody Gardens . If you haven't been, it's definitely worth checking out and making a day of it!



Our neighbors told us about this great little place named Marios along the Seawall where the girls got a kick out of watching the chefs whirl Pizza dough into the air! Since coloring the kid menu is not always enough to hold them over before dinner, this was a great way to keep the girls entertained (especially since the service was a little slow).


Following dinner we enjoyed the Festival of Lights! Though we had a bit of a wait, we were thankful for the golf cart ride that took us through the miles and miles of themed holiday scenes; such as the town of Bethlehem below. This was another great tip from our neighbors!





Not only did the girls enjoy the cool display of Lights, but they enjoyed the 4D special effects movie clip from Polar Express. The special effects were complete with wind, snow, rumbling seats, etc… that made you feel like you were really on The Polar Express. The girls had a blast! Check them out in their stylish glasses! (As you can tell form the pics below, the girls weren't the only ones that enjoyed it!)
