We enjoyed our second Christmas in Katy, TX. We spent time as a family and with the extended family who live in Katy. We participated in some of the traditional Christmas events including a visit with Santa, choosing and decorating the tree, make and deliver Christmas treats, and parties.
The girls visited Santa at the ward Christmas party. Hailey was tenative but climbed up without coaxing.
McKayla decided sitting on Santa's lap was not an important part of the visit, particularly since she still got the candy cane. :) Emily didn't want anything to do with him, bu would sit on my lap,,,, so long as she had her fingers to keep her comfortable.
One day while the older girls were at preschool, Emily and I went to Home Depot. Emily found a shiny tree that was just her size. She loved it!
Emily's favorite part of the day, beside ripping paper off presents, was ice cream in homemade waffle cones.
A friend in our ward introduced us to homemade waffle cones when he invited us for waffle cones at his house. We loved them and asked for a waffle cone iron. Scott and Lisa gave us one, so we enjoyed warm cones and cold ice cream. Perfect for our 75 degree Texan Christmas.
