Last year we started a tradition of driving around and looking at Christmas lights. We went with Mr. Howard's parents and had fun, but didn't realize how crazy busy it was going to be. So this year, we wanted to go early. We also decided that instead of spending an hour trying to drive the block, we'd walk it. Just as we were planning to go, one of the gals in my Mothers of Multiples group posted that she wanted to know if anyone wanted to walk and look at the lights with her family. We decided to go! There were three of us with twins.
This is Mr. Howard and me before we left!
You can't tell, but I dressed them in their Santa Initial shirts that Gramma made them. Connor was SOOO excited. Aiden and Isabella liked it, but I can't imagine what they were thinking.
Did I mention how excited Connor was?!?
I didn't get a great photo of one of the families who went with us. But she and her husband have adorable twin girls!
Erin and her girls, Grace and Ana, were ridiculously cute. The girls were pointing to things and naming them. Such a cute stage!!

My big family!
I just adore making these kinds of memories with my kids. I can so vividly remember my mom driving us around to look at lights when we were little too. It's so fun to incorporate new traditions into the family each year at Christmas time. And during these moments, I am always reminded of how blessed I am to have the husband I do. We couldn't be more compatible when it comes to getting out of the house and taking our kids on little adventures. I hope our kids see what a special Daddy they have.
