Christmas in Arlington

Saturday, December 24th
We arrived in Arlington just in time to get ready for the Christmas Eve service at my parents church. We made it through and entire service without having to leave! After the service, we went to dinner before going back to my parents' house.

Finally, Christmas is here! We woke up and went to church with my parents. Then, we came back to my parents to celebrate Christmas. The boys were excited to see their cousins again. We opened presents, ate lunch, and just enjoyed relaxing.

In the morning, we ventured out ice skating with my parents. Granddad opted not to skate. We all tired out pretty quickly, only lasting about an hour. I thought Josiah and Caleb would have skated a little longer. Thank goodness for groupons! Kerry and Caleb headed back to East Texas so they could squeeze in some hunting while the three little ones and I stayed in Arlington.

We enjoyed just hanging out as a family.  We went to the movies and spent lots of time playing.

Nana and I took the 5 boys to Dinosaur World in Glen Rose, TX.  It was an adventure, but all of the boys had fun.  This was our first time to visit Dinosaur World.  Even though the boys had a fun time, I'm not too sure we would make the trip again.

By this time, Kerry and Caleb had made it back to Arlington. Kerry and I even enjoyed a rare night out just the two of us.  We got to enjoy a quiet dinner and a movie.  Who knows when the next time we will be able to do that.

 Saturday, December 31st - Sunday, January 1st
We spent these two days driving back to California. As much as we loved seeing and spending time with our families, it was nice to unpack and get back to a normal routine.
