Its always fun when Grandma comes..when Grandma comes...hooray!

I had to quote that cheesy line of that primary song..I just had to :) As I mentioned in a previous post, my Mom was able to come and visit us towards the end of December(my Dad came for a lil bit too! Poor guy was really sick though:( But we were glad to be able to see him. And he came bearing gifts so he was kinda important-haha:) While she was here we did lots of things, but here are pics of some of the highlights..girls dessert date at Dimples Cupcake Factory(YUM!)..snowball fight with the remaining snow in the backyard...a trip to Rainforest Cafe and the Gaylord Texan to see the neat Christmas decor/lights. We also had a second Christmas with the Christmas gifts they brought from them and my sister, Tara. My kids are LUCKY! What a blessing to have grandparents/family on both sides that care about my kids so much and are such a presence in their lives. I love the relationships they share!!!

Dimples! Its a funny name for a shop. Not sure which dimples they are referring to...

Snowball fight!! My Mom shows no mercy. She made them all cry at some point. Jk. :) No one was harmed in the making of this snowball fight...

Getting wild at the Rainforest Cafe

This pictures is the BEST. I'm not sure who looks funnier. Okay, my Mom wins. 

This is a tradition of my Mom's. She always HAS to buy this ridiculously expensive dessert there called the Volcano. Its yummy but dang, they charge too much for it. But I ain't payin, so it doesn't matter to me! Haha. Thanks Mom for always spoiling my kids! :) They love you.

My Mom had never been to the Gaylord so we decided to visit there too. And I made her stand in front of the ginormous tree for a picture of course.

 Santa's boots. I never pictured Santa this big, but I guess he is. 

 Ella was cold?

Gift opening..the kids got some cute stuff!! I just love Ammon's facial expression here. He loves his new slippers! They all loved everything.

You have such a wonderful, fun mom. I know that she has as much fun being with you and the kids as you do having her. I just love being with my kids and grands. Fun pictures.
