What do you get....

when you mix a redneck Christmas with an African safari???

You get our Monday night! Ha!

We surprised the boys with a fun family night of going to see the Christmas lights at Texas Motor Speedway and then went to eat at the Rainforest Cafe. They had a ball!

To see the lights at the Speedway, you actually drive on the concourse under the stands. Clayton thought that was pretty cool. :)

At this point, I asked Wade, "Is that some weird Yo Gabba Gabba creature next to the Christmas tree???" He kindly informed me that it was the Abominable Snowman. Riiiiiiggghhhtttt - I totally knew that. ;)

We let the boys bring glowsticks in the car. I have no idea why they like those things so much, but they are always a big hit.
After the lights display, we went to eat at the Rainforest Cafe. It was a crowd pleaser, as well.
Sweet O just goes with the flow. We were seated by an aquarium, so he was a happy camper watching the fish.
A balloon artist came to our table and made the boys each a parrot that attached to their shoulders.

This is such a fun, but crazy busy, time of year! I really enjoyed taking some time out to just enjoy being the 5 of us. I love being with my 4 favorite boys. ;)
