A Big Day

Last Friday Hubs and I picked up our little granddaugther, Breanna, and headed to OKC. We picked up an alteration for Hubs, bought Breanna some Christmas shoes then proceed to see Santa.

Now. . . . she has never allowed Santa to come near her, but she wanted to see him this year and give him her Christmas list which consisted of one thing for herself and one thing for her baby brother. Aww :) She's such a sweet girl!

This is her first ever pic with Santa.
We were so proud of her! (She's very shy.)


We gave her a choice of where to eat.
Then, we headed to the area of downtown OKC called Bricktown.



We all bundled up and headed to ride water taxi.
This is a mini version of San Antonio's canal boats.



This is one of the boats that tours through downtown.
There are a few Christmas lights but with the boat moving,
it was difficult to get clear pics.
The ride weaves around through the businesses of downtown OKC.
It's a nice ride.



After the water taxi ride, we walked to Santaland.



We bought our tickets and rode a train like car through Santa's workshop
at the North Pole. You can see the little passenger "cars" in this pic.
Santa was waiting for us in his sleigh at the end of the ride.



After all this, we went to Midwest City and and
drove through their city park. It was really pretty.



An igloo.



Santa's Candy Cane Company.


Way to go Midwest City!
They aren't afraid to proclaim the real meaning of Christmas!
There was a several Nativity scenes and this . . . .



We exited through the arches of lights.



We headed home for some hot cocoa!

BUT

She had one more request. She wanted to go see this . . .



It was 8:30 p.m. when we started home. The next showing was at 9:30 p.m.
The theme is honor, courage and forgiveness.
Since she's a night owl, we took her and she stayed awake for the whole movie.



It was a big day for a little girl!


The movie theater is only about 10 miles from our house . . .
just long enough for her to fall to sleep.
She was sleeping over at Grammie and PaPas house
so there was more fun to come!

Hopefully, she will remember this day and it will be
a special Christmas memory for her in the years to come!


Merry Christmas,
