This year, Chuck and I decided that we spend way too much money on stuff that kids don't really need, or they grow out of, or stop playing with, or break, or lose. So this year we decided to make family memories.
The weekend before Christmas we all went to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee to see the Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede Christmas show. But before the show we did some sightseeing. Our hotel was right on the main strip, and the kids were so excited looking at all the lights and parks and shops. On Saturday afternoon we went to the Hollywood Wax Museum. The exhibits weren't the best, a lot of them didn't even look like the celebrities they were suppose to portray. But we had fun anyway. Here's some pictures.
The front desk at the hotel told us to just drive down the road and look for the giant gorilla. It was big, lol
There's me with my heart throb...
Kiss me you fool.
Hannah wanted a snack, so she was thinking of sharing a box of chocolates.
After all, what is life but a box of chocolates?
Now to work off those extra calories.
Personally I think Lucy looks demented here, but this was my mother's favorite episode of her favorite show.
Run Boys Run!!!
Hey, watch the cane their buddy. heehee
Hannah loves this series of movies...
Owen is such a cutie :-)
And we ended the tour with Brandon's favorite musician. You should see this boy try to dance like Michael. He's always a big hit at family weddings. lol
Well, that was what we did before lunch...
What do you do to make memories?
