Stretched Out Saturday! (12 Days to go...)

2008 CARROLLTON NATIVITY EXHIBIT

If there was a record of cramming too many things in one day, I think we may have come close today.

After we woke up, we...
- Had a quick breakfast
- Watched "Penelope" & Disney channel
- Had leftovers for lunch
- Shopped for gifts for two birthday parties
- Dropped off one kid to first birthday party
- Stopped at Sonic for their "Happy Hour" deals
- Go back to store to find gifts for second party
- Chauffered 5 children to the second birthday party
- Spent 35 minutes at the 2nd party (Worst Mom Award goes to... ME!)
- Went to the Nativity Exhibit
- The little ones performed (panting a bit...)
- Cruised and took pictures in the Exhibit
- Hit Denny's for dinner
- Visited Nieman Marcus' holiday window
- Dropped off the kids at home (whew!)
- Go back to the exhibit to gather our nativities
- Had to go back two more times looking for one last lamp
- Unloaded the van of nativities, lamps and small trees
- Learn how to compress pictures for blog
- Choose carefully pictures for blog
- Blog before midnight! (this day does end! Yay!!!)

HERE'S OUR OWN NATIVITIES AT THE EXHIBIT:

We found this plastic carving at a Christian/Educational Supply store

This is a Target find

ON TO NIEMAN MARCUS... (Our second year)

Downtown Dallas
The side of the building
Multicolor Recycle Bubble tree


Their theme this year is have children design a tree and explain why.
There's a pencil tree, the jagged one
A yarn tree, the translucent triangle tree
One made of dolls in snow,
The other of rocks, and
The most unusual one is the combo of wheelchair wheels and crutches



And of course, our three darling children in front of the same fountain as last year when we visited Nieman Marcus.
(One is smiling, one is sleepy, the other is a tad chilled...)

How was your Saturday?
