Pre-Christmas in San Antone

We headed out to San Antonio for some fun with the Freefam before Christmas.
The first day is always packed full! Up first, destroy Papa's train!
Preston couldn't figure out why he couldn't push the train along the track like he does on the one in his room and kept taking it off the track for help. Eventually the train was put away for safe keeping :-). With Dustin and Mac soon to join in the terrorizing I'm guessing we probably won't get to enjoy it for at least a few more years.

There were games played with Aunt Brittany, who is always up for fun with the kids, rest time from everyone but those who really needed it (Addie and Preston) and the first of the craftiness with Meema.

Brittany and I were total twinners on 2 days of the trip by accident :-).

After the first of many yummy dinners we made s'mores over the fire pit and then some of us opened presents...doesn't get much better than that!

Addie and Preston opened presents that they were able to enjoy the rest of the visit...a bulldozer and lots of art supplies. I was so proud of Ella for being so mature about not opening anything since she had gone on her early shopping trip with Meema over Thanksgiving. That can be hard as a little kid and she had a great attitude. Of course, I again failed to get a picture of her in her cute outfit with Meema and Papa, but she loves it and uses the purse ALL the time.  When Addie opened her art supplies and saw the pipe cleaners she exclaimed, "I've always wanted these!!!!" She is a great present opener :-)!

We ended up getting this print for Chrissy and Cheryl (after I got the idea from Cheryl's pinterest account!), now I just need one for myself :-).

This one is actually from Thanksgiving, but it's the whole crew with Great-Grandma Gibbs. (oh, and that's Ella's Christmas present outfit and purse!)
