Christmas Adventures

From December 21-23….

The girls had a great time staying with their grandparents and cousins.  Much strolling and babying took place.

In the meantime, Brent and I had a great day.  We spent as long as we wanted at Target – but did still spend a lot of it in the toy aisle finishing up their Christmas lists.  We also did some furniture shopping looking for a few ideas for the house.  And, we went out to the movies to finally see the latest Hunger Games.  I was just glad to finally have a date who weighed enough that the seat didn’t get folded up on them.  From our calculations, Brent hasn’t been to the movies since Abbi was born.  It’s usually not something we pick on our date nights, and it’s something Lilli and I like to do together on our date afternoons.


Abbi got some Ipad time with Madison.

All clean and in their jammies before bed.

On Tuesday morning they stopped at Chuck E on their way back to Nashville and returning the kiddos.  Both girls had a great time and probably didn’t miss us a bit.  Lilli can pretty easily be bought off with unlimited Sonic grape slushes.

Once they came home Abbi couldn’t settle down for a nap, so we put her to bed early and let Lilli stay up late to watch Home Alone.  It was her first time to watch it and we hadn’t seen it in years.  She absolutely loved it and thought it was hilarious, so it will definitely become part of the Christmas holiday movie rotation.  We had a great little movie night and while it was beyond wonderful to have some time to ourselves it was great to have our girlies home!
