Christmas 2014 in the books! Part one

Wow, what a whirlwind of a few days! We have been so busy that I haven't even had time to write so this will be a two parter.   Christmas has come and gone and our house is now officially train crazy!
This is our attempt at outdoor decorating.  This was in andrew's christmas program at school and they donated it to us because they knew how much andrew LOVES trains.  Maybe next year we will get a little bit more fancy LOL!
I am still struggling with starting traditions here.  We did get a sugar cookie decorating kit and we made some sugar cookies for everyone complete with chocolate chips and sprinkles, lots and lots and lots of sprinkles.   He also made real homemade sugar cookies with Grandma Mobbs and decorated those as well using raisins, chocolate covered pretzels and other fancy decorations.  Grandma M for the win:)

We spend Christmas with Grandma Mobbs and Mr.  Tommy (grandma's boyfriend) here in Kansas.  Andrew loves having his Grandma here and I love having a little bit of break from chasing a crazy 2 year old and some of the house hold chores like dishes:)  I had planned on working all week including Christmas Eve but we had a slow down at work so didn't have to work as much as I had thought I would.  That is fine, I have gotten to spend tons of time with Tony's family.  
Manhattan has the largest assembled tree in Kansas complete with lights and music.  We are going to see it at night hopefully before they take it down but we got to see some of it during the day.
Someone was a bad mom and forgot to bring his gloves so he got to wear mine.  Bad mom.  
They even had a letter box for santa.  Maybe next year we will write a letter:).  We never got the whole family to the three so maybe tonight.  We haven't officially cooked our christmas dinner yet.  Mr.  Tommy cooked prime rib and all of the fixings on christmas eve and we were still stuffed christmas day.  Okay, time for part 2, Christmas day!
