It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

Last weekend we went to the Christmas Festival in St. Augustine. We went before a couple of years ago, so we decided to take the girls this year. It is the closest thing to snow and Christmas in Florida. They have an ice slide, which Mark and Derek took part in. They also have ice skating, an elf village, a campfire to make s'mores, hot chocolate and cider, a sleigh ride, and of course Santa is there. We made s'mores and took a sleigh ride with the girls. We went to see Santa, but did not sit on his lap this time. Believe it or not, it was really cold out and the girls were really bundled up (see pictures below) I didn't want to unbundle them especially since they already told Santa what they wanted for Christmas. Overall it was a very cold night, but we had a lot of fun.

This weekend my brother came over and stayed on Friday night and we celebrated Christmas with each other on Saturday morning. We are both going back to Indiana for Christmas and we thought it was silly to pack our gifts for each other in the car to Indiana and have to turn around and bring them right back to Florida. Mya, our niece, ended up getting sick and they left shortly after we opened Christmas gifts, but it was a fun time spent together. All the girls loved opening their gifts, our babies mostly liked the wrapping paper. We (the adults) have been playing with their toys ever since.

I wanted to put up some pictures of our house decorated, but I felt 31 pictures was enough for this post. Stay tuned for our next set of Christmas pictures for Indiana. We will be leaving on the 19th and driving back home. We are planning on driving through the night and hoping that the girls will sleep most of the way. Wish us luck!

Payton: "Not as tasty as it looks."
