Arboretum

I couldn't believe the beautiful weather! We didn't even need coats, it was absolutely perfect.

As we were heading out, Brady decided to take a few pics...and Uncle Brett jumped in too


We played in the car for a second while we waited for everyone


The DeGolyer house had an extensive collection of nativities from all over the world. It was the perfect way to feel the Spirit of Christmas, and to remember the birth of our Savior. The house was built in 1938 so, naturally, I loved looking at the architecture. I really loved this window.



Love Addie's smile

This would have been a decent picture, except there were some drops of water blurring the lens from the spitting frogs.

There were some fun nursery rhyme houses and Santa's Workshop

Again, would have been a decent picture, but Brady decided to wear his guns and roses t shirt.


Olivia got a little fussy because of the wind so we tried to soothe her:

Can you tell she's my mom?

We found the coy pond

and I tried again to soothe the little one


This time it worked!


and then we went home

I love the arboretum!! It's one of my favorite places in Dallas. I finally got to take Chase there last summer. You took some beautiful pictures...despite the guns and roses t-shirt :)

Love all those pictures! Uncle Brett loves his little nieces and nephews-how cute! I love the pictures of you comforting baby O-and the similar one of your mom is precious!

Beautiful pictures :)

I LOVE going to the arboretum! Whenever anyone comes to visit we go there! You'll have to come back and go to the Dallas Blooms - so pretty! That was such a fun Christmas outing! I love nativities and really enjoyed going! Too bad for the wind, but I think Baby O still had fun!
