Mother of Boys

Grandparent Post

We’ve had a fun several days and I wanted to be sure to document our experiences. Jason and I went to both of the boys winter parties at school. I had Drake at Davis’ party where they made these cute snowmen out of socks.

How to Make the Snowman: The body’s a sock with yard tied in 3 sections to make the body, a glove for the hat, a piece of felt for the scarf, 2 brown pipe cleaners twisted together for the arms, buttons for the eyes, and a little light bulb for the nose. All the kids had such a great time making them!

Drake and I went over to meet Jason over at Dylan’s party. We were there a minute or so when Dylan started waving at us. Drake went crazy! He was yelling and shaking – so excited to see Dylan. Dylan came over and grabbed him and they embraced at their reunion. It was so endearing it made my heart swell. 😉

Right after school we took of on a 6 hour drive to Galveston, Texas and our adventure at Moody Gardens. (Drake cried 5 out of the 6 hours. Grrr.)

We hit all the pyramids: The Rain Forest

The Discovery Museum

And the Aquarium.

We also took a ride on the Colonel Paddlewheel Boat. When we lived in Katy – we had season passes and this was a picture I tried to get the boys to recreate:

They were 6 and 4 and a little cranky.

We all went ice-skating, yep even Drake! He lasted one lap. 😉

The sunset on the beach was beautiful!

After a nice dinner, we went to the Festival of Lights. It was amazing and completely breathtaking. We borrowed a stroller from customer service and Drake loved it! {whew!} Davis pushed him around the entire place all day and evening without complaint. It made the day so wonderful and enjoyable.

Saturday, we went to Grandma & Grandpa Rhodes and celebrated Christmas there. They got the boys a telescope that hooks up to your laptop, yada yada yada. I couldn’t tell who was more excited the boys or Jason. 😉

The next morning was a Christmas celebration with Nana, Grandma Betty, and Grandpa Gary.

They spoiled us as usual. We love them so much and were so grateful to be able to spend some time with them.

I was relieved to find out that everyone loved the First Year Books I made. Mission accomplished! Afterwards we drove back home so we could wake up Christmas morning in our own beds.
