Will's initial Christmas list included a small tv and small remote control. Luckily, he asked Santa #1 for the Avengers (specially Iron Man and Captain America). After leaving Santa's lap, Will said "I forgot to ask for a bow and arrow and a kitchen for Katie!"
Luckily, we saw Santa #2 yesterday and Will asked for a bow and arrow, a kitchen for Katie and then also spontaneously asked for a doll for Katie. I hope Santa could hear him over Katie's cries! It was sweet to see him ask on Katie's behalf.

We headed back to the Perot on Sunday during their soft opening and it continues to impress! I look forward to going on my own, sans kiddos, and enjoying the exhibits. The kids love it, but it is hard for me to really take it all in while they are with me.

Moving blocks on the conveyor belt - a favorite

The kids spent lots of time outside as it was at least 75 degrees most of the time we were there! It was gorgeous and I was reminded of how beautiful Austin is. Growing up there, I certainly had no appreciation of this as it was all I knew. Returning home now, I just love the drives on 360 between the cliffs. Sides of the highways filled with trees, some changing colors and some adorned with Christmas ornaments. Between this, the lakes and the hills, it makes me want to move...if only I didn't love life in Dallas so much!
I forgot my camera when we headed to Bill and Becky's for Thanksgiving, so I am lacking any actual Thanksgiving photos! Here are some from our lunch at a burger place with a playground (I wish we had these in Dallas!).
Climbing the wall
This playground was huge - certainly meant for bigger kids than mine!
but that didn't stop Will...

Klyde Warren Park this weekend. It is a new park in Dallas that is located on top of Woodall Rodgers Freeway right off downtown. It is a really great space and the kids play area is unique. We haven't been to another play area like this! Will and Katie had a great time playing and climbing. Will already requested a return trip today, however, the kids are resting up for a visit with Santa this afternoon. He is in town to light the tree in Snider Plaza. Will is ready with his wish list which luckily has switched from a small t.v. with a small remote control to any and all Avenger action figures. I am wondering what Katie will think of Santa this year. I am predicting tears...

Putting on her own coat. She doesn't like help anymore which means she often wears a coat backwards.
Will and Uncle Chuck. This picture makes me realize how big Will really is! He has lost any hint of being a toddler.
