It'S the MoST WoNdErFul TiME of the yEAr!

The Frazier Four had a wonderful Thanksgiving spent with family and friends and then took a little getaway to ring in the Christmas Holidays. We decided a few months back that we would head to Grapevine after Thanksgiving and take part in all the festivities in the Christmas Capital of Texas. We have so much to be thankful for this year and this trip gave us time to reflect on how truly blessed we are as a family.

I {HEART} this little town and told Curtis over and over again that I could pack up my stuff and move here.

Emma was so excited to see all the Christmas decorations throughout our hotel. It was so beautiful, every corner and crack was decorated beautifully for the young and old to enjoy.

We stayed in the Gaylord Texan Resort and enjoyed all the festivities. We walked the property and admired all the decorations, ate Breakfast with the Grinch, enjoyed the ICE exhibit, had story time with Mrs. Claus while enjoying milk & cookies, made an Enchanted Gingerbread house, played with a monkey, rode a real train to the North Pole visited by Santa Claus, walked the streets of Historical Grapevine and so much more. I will be posting these pictures all week to capture the memories of our little Texas Christmas Getaway. It was a busy weekend packed with lots to do and wonderful memories.

I just love this picture of Emma peeking through the trees at the Grinch.

This little monkey was in the line at the ICE exhibit at the Gaylord and was the cutest little thing. As you can see, he sat on Gavin's lap and my kiddos were not real sure what to think about him.

Their Mommy on the other hand thought we was the cutest little guy. We saw him a little later on and he was eating a dum-dum sucker. He was so cute.

I am so excited about this Holiday Season and sharing it with loved ones. It was such a wonderful weekend and I enjoyed every second of my time with my husband and my 2 wonderful children. I could not tell my sweet little family enough this weekend, how much I love them and how thankful I am for each one of them. My life feels so complete and my family is all that I have ever dreamed of, I am truly BLESSED in so many ways. I look forward to sharing the rest of our mini~cation with you this week. Oh and did I mention that I am crazy in love with my husband and my sweet babies?
