We have a great group of friends here. We love them! We are surrounded by wonderful friends with children that our children love. Last year, we started what I think has become a tradition. We all went out to eat in Lindale, a town about half way between Longview and Dallas, and then went to Santa Land. Santa Land is magic for these kids. The lights are incredible, and all 3 kiddos soaked it up. We opened the sun roof, and let them poke their heads out. So much fun!
Then, with our same group of friends, we went to Marshall on Christmas Eve. Marshall is such a cute town, and they have the most festive set up. A light show, ice skating, a giant rocking horse, hay rides, mini train rides, bounce houses, etc. Our friends joined us afterwards for our family Christmas Eve tradition of Chinese food. We are grateful to have such wonderful friends to enjoy these fun traditions with.
