Happy New Year!!

We have had a fun end to 2012! We had ambitious thoughts of going out to dinner as a family tonight, but the cold, rainy weather changed our minds. So instead we moved Cole to the table (for good - no more high chair!) and had chicken taco night. We are planning on watching Season 1 New Girl shows and probably not making it until midnight. We are so exciting around here!

I've kind of taken a blog vacation but will post about our trip to Texas for Christmas soon! Happy 2013!!!

Drive to Nina and Pop Pop's

We left around 8 on Friday morning to do our drive to The Woodlands for Christmas. We like to take the turnpike in OK to Hwy 19 in Texas that goes through a lot of small towns instead of going thru Dallas.

We stopped in Paris, TX, one of the cuter towns, for lunch at Subway. They have a cute downtown square that was decorated for Christmas. It was the perfect place to get out and stretch our legs for a little bit. The weather was great too.

We had about another 4 hours after lunch. Cole did a great job in the car, but he also got lots of snacks and iPad show watching done. :)

First Santa Visit

We actually took Cole to see Santa this year! We figured we didn't have an excuse because our neighborhood has Santa at the clubhouse of the golf course for 2 hours today.

It was great! They had donuts, coffee, water, and juice, tables all set up, and Santa with take your own pictures. Very kid friendly! And parent friendly too!

Cole had a little donut that he picked out and then we went up to Santa. Cole walked right up to him and sat on his lap. No tears! But he did just sit there. Haha. Santa got Cole to give him a high five AND a pound it! Then Cole got to pick out a little present and he picked a snowman puzzle. It was super cute and we are so glad we went!

Our Celebrity

Our little Stacy had an unbelievable year on tour this much so that the won the LPGA Player of the Year (based on points throughout the season) and she won a car! They had a really cool awards ceremony, part of which was shown on TV last week, where part of her speech was shown. My Dad got a DVD of the entire speech, so we got to see that over Thanksgiving too. I have to say it was even cooler to see it in context of the awards ceremony. It seemed like a much bigger deal than just watching her part. I almost couldn't believe that was my little sister up there!
Since we couldn't be there for it, we wanted to do something to celebrate too. In true Lewis fashion, we got her a cookie cake!
Stacy didn't have to get dressed up at all for us! :)

Christmas Tree

The other family outing we took over Thanksgiving was to pick out our Christmas tree. We've gone to the same tree farm in Owasso since we've moved here. They have already cut trees with the short needles and long needle ones you can go cut yourself. We like the look of the short needle ones and know what size we want, so it makes for a pretty quick trip. I always get a fresh wreath for the front door too.
Cole was kind of in a mood because he fell asleep in the car and we had to wake him up when we got there. So he kind of pouted and just wanted to do his own thing...randomly walk around and pet the dog. He wasn't up for taking any pictures with us, but we tried.
The rest of us had a nice time. The weather was great which is a plus because we've had some cold tree farm visits in the past.
Here's the finished tree with lights and ornaments!
Cole hung this ornament with his name on it...way down low where he can see it. We tried to get him to help and he wanted to, but the hook on the branch was a little tricky. We only broke 2 ornaments in the process. One to an accidental drop and one to a throw on purpose.
