Christmas Eve

Well, these first ones were actually on the last day of school for Tyson before the break. His teacher threw a Christmas party and I got to sneak away from work and go to it.  As usual it was adorable :)

This boy was so funny - he kept coming up to me and asking me for help, and asked about 10 times to take a picture with Tyson.  I think I have 5 of them saved.

On the Saturday before Christmas, we loaded up and headed down to see the Torno family!  On Christmas Eve, most of the guys went hunting while the girls took the kids to the Texas State Aquarium. As usual, it was a blast.

We got there just in time to see Santa feeding the fish!

Just me playing with my new camera (thanks Santa)!

Holding hermit crabs

Hailey eventually tried it too!

Grandpa was really nice and spent a good chunk of time setting up this old train set for Tyson. It was pretty persnickety but Grandpa, Tyson and Hannah never lost patience with it.  They'd make little adjustments and try again.  I'm not sure if Tyson likes trains or not...

There are quite a few pictures of Hailey tackling Christine - she's always been great about playing with our kids

As part of our tradition, we read The Polar Express and Twas The Night Before Christmas to the kids
We also decorated cookies and put those and milk out for Santa!  Also - Patrick the elf knew that we'd be going to Grandma and Grandpa's and showed up at their house too!
