For Christmas 2012, we were pleased to welcome both sets of grandparents to our house to celebrate with us. Especially since Jeremy declared he would not be traveling for both holidays this year. :) Mamaw and Papaw Barclay joined us the 21st through the 26th. I also just realized that of all my pictures leading up to Christmas Day, they are not featured in any of them. But they were there, I promise!
Noah was ecstatic to take them for their first ride on the Zilker Zephyr in downtown Austin.
|The tunnel all decked out with lights. Love these boys.|
|My intention was to walk Austin's Trail of Lights after our train ride but I got vetoed...by someone. Next year we will have to try this big tradition again.|
Making more cookies at home.

Before Christmas we also went out one evening to look at some of the awesome Christmas lights around town and stopped by the Cedar Park Christmas tree too. The tree is thought to be about 400 years old and is covered by over 30,000 lights each December. Beautiful.
We did a lot of eating, relaxing, and Noah had loads of fun with his grandparents! Even crawling into bed with them in the early morning hours. :) And he became a huge Polar Express fan after Jeremy picked it up for him for the first time this year. We should have that whole thing memorized by now!
