First stop....Bass Pro shop's Winter Wonderland and pictures with Santa:
Papa Jack and Grandma Donna came with us and Grandma noticed this perfect spot for a picture. I love it! After pictures we went to out to eat to Panda Express. This was even a big deal for the kids as we hardly eat out. Next stop, WalMart. We divided the kids up and let them pick their gifts. I think they all did a really good job. They each even paid on their own.
We ended our evening with going to our favorite neighborhood to look at lights. The entire street is decorated and the last house in the cul-de-sac has an entire scene of Bethlehem and the story of Christ's birth, death and resurrection. This was a little bitter sweet since this was the first year we have not participated in a Walk Through Bethlehem (more on that in another post). I LOVE THE CHRISTMAS SEASON!!!
