Polar Express Par-Tay!

We had a great time at Mimi and Grandpa's Polar Express Christmas party last weekend. We ate pizza, an assortment of homemade cookies, drank the most amazing hot chocolate (thanks to Meredith), and watched The Polar Express with the children all wearing their matching pajamas! It was a lot of fun! Here are some pictures of the night! I love Christmas traditions!
 Mimi holding cousin Hadley
 Parker now fits into his daddy's old boots, and he wears them EVERYWHERE... he even wore them to church last week. I don't mind at all, I think it's quite adorable actually. :)
 The kids had fun opening up their new pajama's from Mimi and Grandpa

 Daddy loves cuddling Hudson while he eats!

 Parker thoroughly enjoyed eating his Mimi's homemade gingersnaps! They were delicious!
 Best. Picture. Ever. Check out Tanners "mini-me" clapping his hands while laughing!
 Mimi and Grandpa wanted to start a new tradition of reading The Polar Express to all of the children and taking a picture every year so we can see how much the kids grow each year. Such a cute idea-- didn't quite work out so well this year (due to the babies not wanting to sit still, especially Hudson!) But it was cute to see them all in their matching PJ's!
 Jase is 4 and Parker is 2... Parker had to switch Jase's 4T pajamas because his 3T were a little too snug! He looked like Gus Gus on Cinderella with his belly sticking out most of the night. It was pretty awesome! I love that little "root beer belly!"
 Uncle Mike held Hudson and Hadley at the same time.
 Aunt Lindsay and Hudson
Hudson is definitely a Mama's boy.
Check out the fistful of hair he is clasping onto! He LOVES my hair! Every time I look at his hands, he has at least one of my hairs in his cute clammy, chubby little palms.

 I'll take it. He can pull out as much hair as he wants (well, not really) as long as he keeps cuddling me. I don't mind at all!
Merry Christmas!
