Weekend Recap

Thursday afternoon, I picked the kids up from school and we headed down to Branson, MO. We arrived at my parent's condo just in time for dinner. Friday morning we were up bright and early and headed off to Silver Dollar City for their Winter Wonderland. We had perfect weather for the day. We rode the rides, saw a Christmas play, decorated Christmas cookies, and had a little visit with Santa.At night, when the entire park is lit up with over a million Christmas lights, there is a Christmas parade. Scarlett was mesmerized.
This is one of my favorite things to do with my kids. I always let them skip school for our special trip.

Saturday we headed back to St. Louis so Dan and I could have a date night. We saw "Due Date" then a late dinner at Flemmings. Today I spent the entire day cleaning our house. We were gone for only 48 hours, and I had the kids with me, I swear my house was so clean when I left, some things I will just never understand!!!


  1. SO fun!!!! They can always miss school in grade school and I missed school in high school all the time also!!!

  2. I love all the pictures. Your kids are so cute!! That sounds like so much fun. I wish there was something like that around here.

  3. I would totally let my son skip school, too, for a special "traditional" trip. They will remember it forever.

    The whole men thing, don't even get me started. I just don't get it either. Oh, well. Can't live with them, can't live without them! Or something like that...

    Happy Monday.

    By the way, my son owns a bunch of those Under Armour sweatshirts, too. I really need to have my husband buy me stock in that company! :)

  4. That sounds so fun! Your kids are too cute!
