Trains, A Party, & Santa...OH MY!

WOW...what a weekend! I think we crammed as many Christmas activities as possible into one weekend and we all had a BLAST doing it...especially the little man! Hudson and I started our weekend festivities out early by heading to Northpark to meet Aurora & Avery Friday morning to see the trains. Apparently half of Dallas decided to see the trains that morning too which made it crowded and HOT, so the little man wanted to be held the entire time, but he loved looking at the trains.
(Please excuse his pre-haircut hair...YIKES!)
Don't get me wrong, Hudson enjoyed seeing the trains, but his favorite part of the morning was walking hand in hand with Avery through the mall, riding the escalator, eating Chick-fil-A, and seeing the puppies from the SPCA. I think I loved watching them walk hand in hand. Is this cute or what?!?

Friday night we hopped in the car to go see Christmas lights. This is the only picture I got, but Hudson loved it. He kept asking to see more reindeer! :)
Saturday night we headed to the Stock's house for a family Christmas party. The best part? They had a VERY SPECIAL guest come...here is Hudson's face when he saw who walked in:
Yep, Santa came to the party! He even delivered a gift to each kid there and gave them a jingle bell. Hudson didn't hesitate when Santa called his name to get his gift!
Showing Daddy what Santa brought.

Our early bird reached delirium pretty early and was singing and dancing with his jingle bell the rest of the night. Thanks Stock family for such a good time and for having an "in" with the big guy!
We finished off the weekend by going to ride the Polar Express on Sunday. Hudson LOVED it!! We started off by singing and dancing in the tent.
Hudson was SO CUTE...he kept holding George up to see the singers. He was saying "George see too." How sweet!!
His favorite part might have been the "snow" as we were walking to board the train though! I mean, look at that face...pure delight!

Hudson was beyond thrilled to see Santa again on the train. WOW...the big guy had as busy of a weekend as we did I think. He was everywhere!

My two favorite guys!

Hudson was happy to see Santa one last time before we got off the train. It was a busy weekend, but SO MUCH FUN! I love weekends that are packed full of family time, don't you?
