Christmas in Waco

Christmas fell on a Sunday this year so the Wednesday before Christmas we headed to Waco. We celebrated Anderson's (early) 4th birthday by going to a trampoline park. The kids all loved it. Well, except for Colton who stayed home with Nana.

Thursday the guys left early to go hunting. Jill and I took the kids to the Children's museum in the morning. We came home for lunch and then our crew napped. We mostly hung around the house the rest of the day and the guys got back that evening. 

Friday morning after breakfast we had the Mattern Christmas. The kids were so excited about all the gifts. We had a nice lunch and then the girls did a little shopping. We hit up Magnolia market and a couple other stores. Magnolia has added so much outdoor fun since I visited last year. It is such a cute place.

One night we went looking at Christmas lights (my favorite!) and there were some amazing houses. There were even photo props and fake snow at one house.

And I think we set a new record this trip as we had 3 game nights in a row after the kids went to bed!

We had a wonderful time in Waco and the kids absolutely loved it. We were sad to leave Saturday, but we packed up and headed out early to spend Christmas Eve and Christmas day at home.
