What a fun, fun weekend! We had Thanksgiving lunch with my family on Thursday! Haley had the stomach virus so she came late, but Baby Hoyt was there the whole time! We sure enjoy loving on that sweet baby! My papa was there, too! It was so nice eating and relaxing before heading out to Branson for the weekend!
After lunch, Rich, Lucy Jane, and I headed off to Branson to spend a couple nights! We stayed at Thousand Hills cabins. They are super cozy and close to the outlet mall! We attempted to do some Black Friday shopping, but settled for Mexican food and driving around! Friday morning we all woke up early and rich took Lucy Jane to Bass Pro to look around and I went back to sleep! (So nice) we spent the afternoon at the Tanger outlet and lunch at a little restaurant! Lucy Jane was so tired that she feel asleep in my arms walking into the restaurant. This has never happened! Rich and I enjoyed talking while she slept in the booth! He was super dad this weekend! It's so neat to see how much Lucy Jane loves him!
Silver Dollar City was a huge hit for Lucy Jane! She 'gets' Christmas this year! She was so excited!! She loved all the lights and seeing Santa! Makes this momma so happy to see her excitement!
We got home today and went to the square in Fayetteville tonight to look at the lights! She rode a pony all by herself and I rode the camel with her! She got to see a real reindeer and sit on Santa's lap again! She keeps saying she wants Santa to bring her a Minnie Mouse doll! She's never been into Minnie Mouse so it's fun to see her come up with what she wants him to bring her all by herself!
Our tree is up, mantle semi-decorated, and a few other decorations out! Looking forward to enjoying the holiday season teaching her about the true meaning of Christmas! Love my sweet family!
