A Christmas Weekend

I've missed many posts about our fun weekends from the past few weeks. Somehow we have been go-go-going without much down time. On top of our busy schedules we had a sinus infection and stomach bug hit our house. I'm hoping to find the time to write all of the past posts about some fun getaway weekends with our friends. While I have a few minutes tonight I thought I'd post about this past weekend.

We drove into Louisville to spend the day with Jonathan's mom. They have a really cool indoor light display made out of Chinese lanterns. I saw it online and thought Adalyn would love it. The day we were going there just so happened to be Breakfast with Santa so we started our morning off with lots of sugary breakfast foods and a wait in line to get a picture with Santa.

Ready to go see Santa!
 Waiting in line after breakfast.

 Don't adjust your computer. Yes, this Santa was a really good Santa and after we waited in line Adalyn and Cayden both sat on his lap so nicely but somehow our camera had the focus off and all of the pictures turned out like this. So sad!! Guess we'll be visiting Santa again for another picture.

After we visited Santa, we went to go see the luminaries. They were really cool! Adalyn liked them but we were starting to get close to nap time so she was a bit sleepy and whiney:(


 After the lights we went to the Christmas village and waited to see the Snow Fairy in her castle. Adalyn was pretty excited. The problem was that there were lots of moving stuffed animals in a scene behind her chair and Adalyn was so interested in them that she wouldn't look at the camera for a picture. Funny girl.

On Sunday I dressed the kids in matching outfits for the first time. I bought these outfits at the Bella Bliss warehouse sale last summer. They were only $10 each (which is insane if you know how much Bella Bliss clothes normally cost) and I couldn't pass them up. This was one of Cayden's first monogrammed items. At the time I couldn't fathom my unborn child able to fit into this outfit, yet here he is! Of course I had to try to get pictures. Here are the best ones. Never are both kids looking and smiling at the same time.

Can you tell how much she loves holding her brother? Sweet babies. (Those 3-4 fingers are always in his mouth! Always.)
 I love how tender she is in this picture. She was kissing on his cheeks.

 Both are smiling even though they aren't sitting picture-perfectly. I love how Cayden is holding onto Adalyn's dress in this picture. He loves his sister.
