Even More Christmas Fun

It really is the most wonderful time of the year!!  I love all of the wonderful Christmas fun that there is to be had.  Fun traditions that make Christmas so special.  Friday night we continued a tradition of getting dressed up in our Christmas jammies and heading out to look at Christmas lights.  We all got hot chocolate and popcorn then loaded up in the van for the fun!
 Of course there had to be a selfie before we headed out.  We turned up the Christmas music and off we went!
 We drove all over South Huntsville and Hampton Cove.  There are some awesome light displays out there.  We voted this one our favorite.  It is set to music and has Christmas characters in a rock band.  Really cool!  We finished up going through the Chic fil a drive through for cookies.  This is one of my favorite Christmas traditions.  It puts me in such a festive mood.
 Saturday was packed!!  We went in several different directions.  I enjoyed a 5 course tea with my mom and some of our friends.  It was really great.  Such a relaxing time with friends.  It was wonderful to get caught up and just enjoy some down time in the busy season.
 Kate went off to Kaylee's 5th birthday party!!  It was a lunch with Santa at the botanical gardens.  She had so much fun.
 Ben and Matt did some shopping and went to the Lego club holiday open house.  Like I said we all went in different directions.  Saturday night was our life group Christmas party.  We dropped the kids off with a baby sitter and went out to dinner.  It was perfect!!  An adult only evening.

Sunday was church.  I managed to get a couple of cute pictures of the kids before church.

 Sunday afternoon was spent getting ready for a busy week but we did relax at night to watch Elf and drink hot chocolate by the tree.
I just love Christmastime!!!
