A Friend for Perry

Well friends, we made it.  After seven-and-a-half hours, we finally made it to Lake Charles!

I know what you are thinking:
But it is only a three-and-a-half hour drive from Longview to Lake Charles... Why did it take yall so long? 

We decided to travel down through Louisiana instead of Texas so that we could make a quick stop at Bass Pro Shop in Bossier City.  Well....That quick trip lasted three-and-a-half hours!  It would have lasted much longer had I not been wanting to get to Lake Charles so badly.  Gannon and Bryan had the best time, and I wish my camera hadn't been packed away in the car.  There were all sorts of booths set up for husbands kids to try, like hunting and fishing games, remote control trains, face painting, and more.  Santa was even there taking free pictures with the little ones!

A great time was had by all!

When we arrived in Lake Charles, we were greeted by a very special visitor at Mimi's house.

Santa sent an elf to Mimi's house, too!  I don't have any photos of the kids because they found him while we were unloading our bags.  They were very excited about this new friend.  Gannon immediately named him, Mike.

They told Mike all about their other elf, Perry.  They also introduced him to their toy elves, Chippey and Snowflake. 

The next morning, they awoke to another surprise. 

Perry found us in Lake Charles!!

Can't leave this one out....Here are the munchkins baking blueberry muffins with Mimi!

We are very excited to be home, and we cannot wait to visit with everyone!
