This past weekend, Zach had a school function on Saturday that required him to be gone ALL day Saturday. Instead of sitting around the house by ourselves, the kids and I headed to Oklahoma City with my mom to visit my dad for the weekend.
The kids traveled well on Friday and they slept really well that night, which is always a toss up while traveling, especially with Reed getting over his ear infections. We woke up Saturday morning with plans to have some Christmas fun.
We went downtown to the Devon Building where the company hosts a Christmas extravaganza every Saturday! It was SO FUN! They had crafts and projects like decorating stockings and writing letters to Santa, as well as meeting Santa and Mrs. Claus. The building had really gorgeous decorations as well!!!
As we were waiting to meet Santa, Ava started getting whiny and nervous. I wasn’t sure what she would do, but she sat with him and I got the sweetest picture! i LOVED that we were able to go and take our own photos here free of charge. SUCH a neat thing!
This was seriously such a neat thing for the kids to do. I hope we can go back and visit every year! If you’re in that area, you should definitely check it out!!!!
We had some lunch after this and Reed kept shrieking at me with unhappiness. I couldn’t figure out what he wanted. I finally realized instead of me dipping some chips in cheese dip for him, he wanted to do it himself. He ended up feeding himself cheese with a spoon. Whatever makes them happy sometimes!
The kids were WORN out by the time we got home. Reed woke up that night around 1 and was WIDE awake. SInce we were in the same room, I took him out b/c I didn’t want him to keep waking Ava up and he just walked around and played. I was less than impressed with him at 2 am.
We had such a fun weekend and accomplished the task of meeting Santa! I love weekends filled with making memories with my babies!!!
