If I have said it once, I have said it a hundred times. Don't plan anything because it is never going to happen that way.
I didn't really have too much of a plan for this night except to go see Christmas lights with ZK's aunt and her family. They are super sweet people that we really enjoy hanging out with. They hadn't been to see the lights in our area yet so we took them over there. It was fun to hear the oohs and aahhhs and watch them tapping their hands on their legs to the music. We pulled over and watched the trees that are timed to the music.
I just get excited about the free candy canes at the end! The city does a good job setting it up and it winds through the soccer complex where Monkey plays during the outdoor season. For some reason Koala thinks we have to go through it with our windows down.
We came back to the house and had hot cocoa with the gingerbread marshmallows. The kids played Taboo, which is their new favorite game right now. I love watching them laughing and loving on each other and their cousins. What a sweet time!
