The girls had a Happy Birthday Jesus party at school before the Christmas break. Todd, Jack and I got to come to their class and see a little bit of what they do in school. It was fun to see the girls in a different environment. Kate did really well and sang the songs and danced and did the motions. Ellie was a little more shy with so many adults in the room. She just sat in Daddy's lap and watched.

We decided to travel to San Antonio for Thanksgiving this year. It was quite the road trip. We left Dallas around 11 am and arrived at my parents house shortly before 8pm. It was one LONG day. There were lots of snacks, toys, games, DVDs, crying, and stops along the way. But once we arrived everyone settled down and went to bed by 10. It was the girls first time to sleep in pack n plays, and we were a little worried about how they would react and if they would try to climb out, but they did just fine. Over all the trip was great! We had so much fun with Grammie and Papa and their little dog Bella. The girls were fascinated with such a small dog and gave her more attention than I think she wanted. While we were in town we went to one of my favorite Mexican restaurants, did some shopping, visited family and just hung out. My mom and I also went to see the newest Twlight movie, which was a treat because I don't often get to the movies.
Overall it was a great trip and everyone enjoyed all the quality family time. I think we may wait a little while before making the drive again though. Here are a few more pictures from our time at Grammie and Papa's house.
