A Christmas Warmup

Mr. Doozie's parents were here this past week and it was the start to our Christmas celebrations!

Memere and Grandpa
Although Jack says "May May" and "grandPA"

We took full advantage of the warm weather and events in the area

Here's a little peek:

Our gift exchange was sweet and full of laughter
The boys were thrilled to open gifts so early
Mr. Doozie made some very awesome artwork,
look for a full post on that later.
Awesome I tell ya, awesome!
We'll take a little warm weather if it means a splendid afternoon at the beach
Gorgeous day
Happy boys
Toes in sand
More shells than we could collect
It was perfect perfection.
Can you spy the teeny tiny crab? 
He was scurrying around enjoying the warm weather with us
 We snagged the last spots for the Polar Express tram 
Stories, Cocoa, and Cookies
and then a "train" ride to see all the lights.
A new family tradition. 
 Mr. Doozie's momma is also a very handy do it "yourselfer"
We finished the craft hutch!
It is amazing
You'll see it in another post soon :)
 The weather turned a little chilly
Perfect for a trip to our aquarium for a toddler meet up.
We said our goodbyes on Sunday.
The boys are already asking when they will be back :)
Thank you Grandpa and Memere for such a sweet trip!
