We are ahead of the game this year! We went to "The Village" in Allen to TRY to get a good group pic of the kids for a Christmas card. Incase you are wondering, it didn't work. :) But there wasn't a line to see Santa, so we got to see him! The big kids had no problem sitting in his lap & smiling. Hannah was ok with it, as long as she was on Kate's lap. We tried moving her to Santa's lap, but that just ended with her big time crying! This was the final picture. As you can guess, after they were done with us, there was a nice long line behind us. Oops! Everyone was happy since it includes suckers! Mason said he didn't know what he wanted, Caroline wants a rainbow loom, Kate wants an Easy Bake Oven & iPod touch (hahaha) & Hannah wanted to GET OUT OF THERE!!
We went to the Shrine Circus a few weeks ago and had so much fun! It was our first circus! The kids loved it and so did I! We got to see tigers, elephants, camels, a dog show, ladies climbing robes & swinging. These guys jumping rope, I know sounds normal, but it was so much more. Another group doing more gymnastics moves. Guys motor crossing , (loud but good), AND the man was shot out of the cannon! It was worth it! Go to the Circus!
Tips I learned: 1. The "free" ticket they all received from school was not really "free". That's ok, we still had fun, but they told us that section was full, so their tickets were 1/2 off. When we got in there that section was NOT full. Just an FYI.
2. During intermission they opened up the floor to kids & parents to ride elephants, camels, have your picture taken with a big snake, pony rides. etc. This is NOT the end of it! Don't leave!
3. Go ahead and buy the light up toys. We didn't, but I think the kids would have had a great time playing with them through the event.
4. Might want to plan on going to an early show. We went at 7:30 and were not out until 11:00!!
We love Cotton Candy!
Ladies on Ropes & Swings
See the clowns lined up? You can't see the guy, but he JUMPED over all of them!
