December Christmas stuff - Grapevine fun, Christmas lights, school parties, carriage rides and more!

We went to watch the Grapevine tree lighting on Main Street with our not-so-small, small group.

Grapevine Parade of Lights was extra fun this year because Meyer's Pool Care entered a float in the parade and lots of our playgroup kids got to ride in the parade.
We still utilized my dad's building on Main Street to watch the parade for all the littles and it was so fun seeing our big kids go by waving!

Ryan kept an eye on Kinley for me since Ben was in NYC for work on the night of the parade. She had fun and I am thankful he took some pics for me!

We went with the Nordell's one evening to just walk around Main Street and look at the lights, have dinner and enjoy the Christmas Capital of Texas.

These animated, singing snowmen were new this year and such a cute show to watch.

Another night we went to walk around the Gaylord and have dinner and look at the lights!
 I guess Dylan wasn't a fan of the sleigh pic this time

We went to drive through the Texas Night before Christmas lights with hot chocolate and friends and Mendy & Alex and Cannon too!

School Christmas parties for Kinley and Ty were on different days this year (WIN!) so I got to go to both!

 Rocking this baby at night by the light of his little Christmas tree was just magical.
I know this might be the last year for it and I treasured every moment

We busted out the Compass Kids Birthday cake baking bag that our church gave out with the Williams and made Happy Birthday Jesus cupcakes.  
We sang happy birthday and everything.

 Joyner Family Christmas get-together at Aunt Jan's was fun!
 Kinley loved reading The Christmas Story to the littles. 

We did the COOLEST carriage ride Christmas Light tour in Dallas with my whole family one night and it was just the best! 
We all met for dinner and then had a late carriage ride with hot chocolate and blankets and non-stop caroling. 
It was so fun!
