ALL The Christmas Things

One week until Christmas!! The kids have no spelling tests this week (YASSSSS), practices are cancelled, and it’s looking like we’ll have minimal-to-no homework. Not too shabby! To celebrate we’re having a family movie night and watching The Christmas Chronicles on Netflix.

We had such a fun weekend! The four of us headed to our friends’ annual Christmas party on Friday night. Saturday was pretty low key, though we did grab Tex-Mex and drove around looking at lights. On Sunday we took the kids to Neiman’s downtown to see Santa:

Then on Sunday afternoon my parents took us to The Gift of Christmas at Prestonwood Baptist Church. It’s this amazing Christmas program with singing, dancing, and a live nativity at the end. There are literally 1000 people in the cast, and they bring zebras, camels, peacocks (!!), donkeys, sheep, etc., onstage. Such a fun tradition and the kids LOVED it!

(Why are my children incapable of normal smiles in photos??)

There were a lot of people flying around in the air lol.

It was a good soup day today (but really, when is it not?) so I made a big pot of my standby favorite turkey taco soup. I know y’all are probably so sick of me posting about this one! Sorry not sorry… it’s that good.


I ended up using 1 Tbs of taco seasoning and 1 Tbs powdered ranch dressing mix instead of the full packet of taco seasoning.

Topped with sour cream and cheese, and also a squeeze of lime:

I know what I’ll be eating for lunch all week! And not mad about it at all.
