Christmas at Botanical Gardens

Mom and I joined the Johnson family on a trip to Botanical Gardens. 
It was so beautiful once we got inside the gardens.
















Santa came to Nana and Papa's

Santa made a surprise visit to the grandchildren a couple weeks before Christmas. He came to tell them the importance of good behavior and listening to their parents. The Johnson kids must have been pretty good this year because he gave them a trip to Great Wolf Lodge on the following Monday. They were all so surprised and excited to see him!







Christmas Town at Busch Gardens

Part of Mom's Christmas was a trip to Christmas Town to see all the lights. We lucked out on a Wednesday with great weather and set out on our holiday adventure. I rented a wheelchair because I thought the walking would be too much for her. Addie was able to get in free so she went with us. We had a blast watching the shows and couldn't wait for twilight when the lights turned on. The park became magical as the evening progressed but everyone was getting a little tired and we decided to head back home. It was a wonderful afternoon with all the generations.

Halloween 2014

Our Halloween events started the week before October 31st. After a lasagna dinner,
everyone got to work...

Lauren brought supplies to decorate sugar cookies and make candy.




Jill's craft was water bottle pumpkins










Papa took everyone outside to light firecrackers before they went home. No holiday visit would be complete without some gun powder.

On Halloween night, everyone met up to trick or treat together. After a bowl of chili, they set out on their candy search.

Princess Sofia

We didn't have many trick-or-treaters this year but everyone had a good time and didn't get too scared. I stayed home giving out candy and watched horror movies- my fav.

See you next year!
