More December - Everyday things, Helicopter Santa, American Girl, and Santa Pics

I never want to forget how this boy loves to help me make my coffee. 
 He can work the whole Keurig and stirs in my almond milk.
 Its precious time every morning.

Kinley & Ty wore white the day that Santa was coming to visit. 
He came in on a helicopter to school one day and it was a total hit. 
All the kids in every grade gathered around the blacktop. 
Santa touched down and then made the rounds to take pics and shake hands with all the kids.

Ty spent his Tiger Bucks one day to have lunch in the classroom with Mrs. Richardson. We LOVE her!

We had a girls day at the American Girl Doll Store so we could get Kinley's doll, Lila's, hair fixed, take my old American Girl doll, Kirstin, in to have her leg repaired and have brunch.

Yall, American Girl has better customer service than anyone. 
They took my sweet 30 year old doll and wrapped her in a hospital gown and sent her off for repairs. A couple weeks later they called me to, not only, tell me that Kirstin was "doing great," but that they were going to replace her leg for free and also give her new eyeballs because they were a bit glassy.  (What?!) A week or so after their call, we got Kirstin back in the mail with a new pretty hairdo, new eyes and all wrapped up in her hospital gown still.

 We had an appointment to get Lila's hair done after brunch but we had a little time to kill in between. So we dropped her off, picked up her hairstyle and went shopping around the Galleria.

When we came back to watch her get her hair done, they were profusely apologizing because they had accidentally switched Lila with another doll and she had an accidental ear piercing! 
They were so sorry but, we could have the ear piercing for free and 4 sets of free earrings. 
Yall, for real!? This is still a doll, right?
 Kinley was thrilled. 
 I couldn't believe how accommodating they were for these dolls. 
Its a whole other world.

Since Kinley had a pretty special day at American Girl, I decided to take Ty out on a date to Dave & Busters one night. 
While he still loves his one-on-one time with me and thinks I am cool, I am doing this as much as I can!

We finally got a picture with all my kids and Santa in our favorite Compass Kids Choir tees. We love the Santa at North East Mall. For good smiles, they got popcorn and cookies.

After Christmas, we finally did get to Holiday in the Park. We went with the Nordells and had Aubrey with us because she was spending the night.

We love Six Flags at Holiday in the Park. Such a huge perk for our season pass!
