The Light Spectacular
We headed to the last night to see the light spectacular. It was pretty neat. The boys enjoyed it. They loved seeing all the animals lit up and then to see santa at the end. Quite an enjoyable evening.
Today, Santa came to town early on the fire truck. He happens to make a stop directly in front of our house. It was raining so it wasn't the best of condtions. Colin was in a mood but other than that is was happy. That is, until Santa and the firetrucks tried to LEAVE. Can you say meltdown?? All three threw a fit because they wanted him to stay. We had to drag them inside crying and screaming for Ho Ho. They calmed down after I lured them to the Christmas Tree and gave them each an ornament to entertain themselves.
Christmas starts early at the Lawrence household. Grandpa and Val are coming for dinner today to celebrate Christmas since we won't get to see them on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. It sure is difficult around the holidays when your parents and inlaws are both divorced. There is just not enough time in each day to see everyone. We love seeing all of our families but sometimes it is just not feasible especially with three small children.
We are so looking forward to Christmas morning. The wonder in the boys eyes will be just unbelievable. As it is every time they see the tree it's like they are seeing it for the first time. I have always loved Christmas but nothing compares to Christmas with your children.
