Christmas at Greatwolf..

The Lankford side of christmas was held at Greatwolf lodge this year...we changed some thing up and decided instead of a bunch of gifts..we would just do a trip. It was a great time and the Kids absolutely loved it...it had been booked back in the summer..or maybe even before that...so, the kids could not wait to get there...and it was nice only coming home with a few gifts...vs a ton! win..win! 
We got there thursday at lunch...and all met for lunch..and even had some wonderful friends , who were, ironically, in the area...stop in and say hi...made our trip..and gave hanna the biggest smile! 
so, we played thursday night..all day friday and left sat morning. (NYE) after a trip to legoland and rainforest cafe. 
The girls had a morning at the spa..so they boys got a treat at legoland. 
the dads got to venture out to bass pro..and when they got back the ladies got to venture over to messina hoff winery for some girl time. IT was fabulous. 
It was the perfect length of stay..and we all had a great time. 
Travis of course, loved the rides just as much as the kids...they had rides for all sizes...that was so nice! 
so, he and hanna rode most together..


and claire stayed in her little area...and had a ball..
























the first night when going up to our room we just happened to run into the wolf...kids loved it!!




even jake was all smiles..:) 


got cleaned up, dinner and opened a few presents before heading down for story time..

present time...


my sister found the cutest books that fit the girls personalities perfectly...
our animal loving princess...





break in presents for story time...

they made it snow..it was so cute..





girls met violet afterwards..boys didn't want their pic with a girl..lol 




jake was ready for bed...so, he headed up with mom-mom...


this girl cracks me up...she asked me to take a picture of just her...and this was the pose she did..lol! 

so, naturally, hanna followed...

back to presents..

boys were sooooo excited about the bunk beds...they had been anticipating these rooms for a long time...thanks to commercials..ha! 



me and my boys..




mommy and me mani and pedis...with ice cream afterwards...




the boys hit up the acrade while girls were pampered..


Jake's first time in water...


i relieved travis of his dad duties..haha..and rode some rides with hanna..


we were all tuckered out by the end of that day...sweet claire slept on grandpa for awhile..and then moved to the lounge chair...

girls night out..haha! (more like an hour or so..haha)...










saturday morning, headed to grapevine mills for legoland and lunch...

grandpa and his girls..


boys were in heaven..
poor brady was just so torn..he just couldn't decide..haha! 


so, the girls built while we waited...


finally, decisions made..haha..


the whole crew at rainforest cafe...
note to self..next time we are sharing plates..those were some huge portions...haha! 


all done, and heading our separate ways...



perfect ending to our christmas...
hanna told me while walking to the car, " mommy, my eyes are watering b/c I don't want everyone to leave." haha..sooo sweet! 

and not 10 min after we left...lights out for all..including Ty..man, we were tired! ha! 


we ended up deciding on cutting our travel time and headed to lake..cut out a few hours..
we had big plans to stay up until midnight...
but we lasted until about 9:30..lol..and we were out! 
means, it was a successful christmas trip...a week long, fun-filled christmas break! 


1500 miles later, we made it home the next day! 
had 2 days to get out stuff situated..monday the kids all played so nicely with all their toys (first time they really had a chance to see everything they got..haha)..I even had a shower and got ready ALL BY MYSELF...that never happens!! haha! 

Merry christmas and happy new year...
