It's Christmas Eve!

It's been a busy few days... 

Friday was Val's 14th birthday.  We took her out to dinner and saw "Mary Poppins Returns" afterwards.  The movie was okay.... the kids loved it and liked how it had an old school feel to it. 

Saturday evening Clint and I went to a Christmas party.  We never get invited to such things.  My cousin in Morgan City invited us, so we went by for a little while.  We didn't stay late but it was nice to get out for some adult time. 

Party ready

Yesterday we took Valerie, Veronica, and two of their friends to this big Christmas Fest in New Orleans.  It's inside the convention center which is HUGE.  The fest is only in part of the convention center and boasts 325,000 square feet of Christmas fun.  It's a great time and reasonably priced.  It's $20 a person, but if you bring an empty Coke can, it's $15.  And that includes everything inside.

Probably the biggest draw is the ice rink!  They are practically non-existent around here, so it's a rare chance to ice skate. 

There's fair rides like the scrambler, carousel, and tilt-a-whirl. 

The four girls seemed to have a blast running around going from ride to ride....  running across from one end of the convention center to the other.

I'd say it was a good time for all as we were all pretty tired at the end of the day!!
