Christmas Tree Lighting

Tonight we went to the city of Denham Springs Christmas Tree Lighting. The whole lighting of the tree was blah but Kaiden had fun playing on the kid train by the RR tracks. The Children's Choir also sings and that's the main reason my mom wanted to go. They did a good job and we listened for a little while but then the kids got restless and it was time to go play on the train some more. A little later my mom and i got the kids back over to listen to the high school kids sing and they did an amazing job! The last two songs we heard are two of my all time favorites, Silent Night and O Holy Night. My friend Katie and her little man, Tyler, met up with us too. I use to think Kaiden was obsessed with trains but Tyler LOVES them. He was so excited to play on the miniature life size train. Tyler and Kaiden had a good time running around w/ the older kids and Tyler also enjoyed running away from his mom! I couldn't believe how cold it was. Last night leaving the 1st Presidency Christmas Devotional (which was great) I was in a short sleeve shirt and warm. Tonight we were all bundled up and still freezing! I'm glad I got the kids their beanies and gloves when I did. We leave for DC on Friday and I don't know what we're going to do in the cold weather with all the site seeing I want to do. All I have to say is layers, lots and lots of layers.

My mom was swinging Kalli from side to side while we were trying to listen to O Holy Night before we left. She thought it was hilarious...if you can't tell by the look on her face!

I think up here the big problem is the WIND! I still need to buy winter stuff, I am freezing my tail off.
Looks like you guys had a lot of fun despite the cold.
