Almost Christmas

 He got a hold of a gingerbread house and REALLY liked it.

Park had a giftcard so we took her to Build-A-Bear for the first time.  She picked a dog, of course.
Dally is getting so big.

Christmas eve we went for a walk to get some energy out.

The kids were so so excited to get to open a present.

Then we scattered reindeer food in our yard so the reindeer would know where to land.

Christmas Season...

Lets just say the kids have seen Santa a few times...
SOI Christmas party (also, the WORST Santa, but bless his heart for trying).

Hank all fancy for checking in at 1st Marines.

The girls "practicing" with my straight iron.

Parker's adorable kindergarten christmas concert.

I was lucky enough to go in and help with the class Christmas party.  They are soooo cute.
The class gets split into the same groups for stations.  It is always a relief when Parker's group comes around, they are by far the best behaved and easiest to help.

Because Hank is deploying unexpectedly I was able to talk him into buying Parker and I Disneyland passes for Christmas (with some help from my mom and dad!).  I love Disney at Christmas so Hank and Park took a day off on Wednesday and we went as a family.
We haven't been since Henry was born and that six months made a HUGE difference for Dally.  She now knows all the characters and loved loved loved seeing them.  It was fun getting to experience the magic of Disney through her. 
It was pretty chilly, everyone had a sweatshirt or coat on... except Park.

Henry wasn't as impressed.

It wasn't very busy so we got to do a lot including seeing Santa. 

He got to sit in the front of the stroller like a big boy.

The parade was the absolute best part.  Dally's face was pure joy as each float went by.
