Baking Santa's cookies

 This year for Santa's treat we baked Aunt Jo's chocolate chip cookies.  They were so good.  The best part was, I baked plenty for Christmas and then froze the rest of the cookie dough for later!  I am not sure if that will be consumed pre or post baking!

Those are hefty sized cookies, aren't they?!  We do not mess around when it comes to Santa's cookies!  After this, we put reindeer food in the yard.  Can't forget about them!

Lights of the Ozarks

These pictures were from our nearly annual trip to the Lights of the Ozarks in Fayetteville. The boys oohed and aahed over all of the lights. It was a joy to hear them.

The boys were wearing helmets, cutely camouflaged as Santa hats, to ride the camel.
Riding the camel!

Botanical Gardens Kids Fun Run

We made a spur of the moment decision a few weeks ago to visit a special day at the Botanical Garden of the Ozarks. They have the cutest children's garden there that the boys loved!

They have a cool model train exhibit set up. Since Aidan wants to be a train conductor when he grows up, this was right up his alley!
They even had a free fun run for the kids around the gardens! They asked us if we thought they should run one or two laps around...we told them two! The kids were excited to run in a race with a number on their shirt like Mom and Dad do.

What a fun way to spend a Saturday morning!

Zachary's Christmas program

Zachary had a precious 3 year old Christmas program this month. Look how sweet they are! This picture is with Zachary walking in with his sweet frient, Ava.
They performed in front of the church. Please, ask him to recite his part next time you see him. He would love to give you a performance.
Afterwards, they had a Birthday Party for Jesus!
