All aboard......

We’ve had an incredibly busy week but a great one! This past Saturday was our District Debate Tournament in Ft. Worth, and so I stayed late every day for debate practice. By the time, I pick up Tyler and get home, it’s so late and we’re wiped out! We’re in the process of getting a new house, so we’ve been looking and looking for just the right house that will be closer to school, Tyler’s daycare and church. That in itself will make things SO much easier for us all……we’re just praying for that “right” house. We have wanted to take Tyler on the Polar Express in Grapevine, and so we waited in line for tickets on Friday night, and met our friends there so they could ride along. PaPi and GiGi met us there to drop off Tyler, and we quickly changed him into his pajamas so he could be like all the other kids on the ride. We had a blast! Afterward, we went out to eat and just people watched….you have to be with the right people to do that…..SO fun!
I had to be at the school at 6:00 on Saturday morning for our debate tournament….and left Brandon and Tyler asleep in our bed……wish I could have stayed there with them….but I was excited to be with my debate kids. They did awesome and I was so proud of them…..we’ll be off to the State tournament in Austin next month….can’t wait. PaPi and GiGi picked up Tyler on Saturday to spend time with MawMaw who is visiting from North Carolina…..Tyler played and talked MawMaw’s leg off while he was there….they were both worn out when it was time to go home! LOL!
I rushed home and changed clothes and we went to Brandon’s corporate Christmas party…..we had a great time with his co-workers, but we were both glad to get home and sleep in.
Today was all about hanging out at home and catching up on our sleep from our busy week. We snuggled and watched Charlie Brown Christmas…..with Tyler…..you can’t watch something just one time…he wanted to watch it over and over again. This is my last week before Christmas break…and while it won’t be so busy…..there’s still lots to do…..we have to see Santa Claus this week….and let him know what a good boy Tyler has been. Thankfully, Buddy (our Elf on the Shelf) has been watching little man to make sure of it. When he got home yesterday…..Buddy was hanging upside down on the light fixture….just waiting for him! Brandon has been so good to put him in different places….and Tyler loves to wake up and find out where Buddy is…..we really need him year round. LOL!
