Christmas Events

We have had a busy December up to this point, we went to North Park Mall in Dallas yesterday to see the trains. The kids loved it! We made and painted homemade ornaments, which was another good craft that kept them busy for hours. Last Saturday we went to the Plano Area Mothers of Multiples Christmas party. My friend Amy and I were in charge of the entire event. I never realized how much work went into a party of that size! I think last year the total was around 300 for the event. I can't wait to see our numbers for this year. Mason, Kate and Caroline did get to see Santa. Mason ran up to him and let Santa hold him, so he got to tell him exactly what he wanted for Christmas. Kate was not so sure about him. I held her and she turned her head the opposite direction to tell Santa what she wanted. Maybe he got to hear a few of her requests. Caroline just stared at him. She did not cry, just a dead stare. The photographer hopefully got a few good shots! Check out the pictures below to see what our month has looked like - so far!

Caroline at the train exhibit.

I thought you might like to get a peek of what we got to see! Trains were everywhere!

Caroline and Kate were still for just a minute so we could take a picture together.

Mason, Pearson and Kate in the Mall. They had a great time together and were all on their best behavior.

Caroline painting her ornaments.

All of our ornaments we painted. Caroline painted the cross and the red tree on the bottom left corner all by herself. I thought that was pretty good for a 1 year old with a paint brush!

Kate painting her ornaments.

Before church on Sunday. They were doing their happy scream!

Kate the reindeer at the PAMOM party. We had a balloon artist and someone painting faces/hands.

It's a snowy day! They did not stay out in it very long. Maybe 10 minutes and they were ready to come inside.

Caroline loves suckers! They get a "treat" when we go somewhere and everyone stays together as we should. :)
