As part of a Christmas gift....we attended a Christmas Show at the Candlelight Theater in Delaware.
We enjoyed Christmas elves and fun during the first half and Carole's and Nativity highlights in the second half. The kids favorite was the 12 pains of Chrismtas song....they laughed remembering all of the verses.
Dinner was wonderful too....Ben stacked a plate mile high before the buffet closed to snack on while the rest of us grabbed desserts to eat....he has a big appetite.
Mmmmmm.....it smells so good....Chocolate World at Hershey....it was a gloomy day outside but beautiful inside....lots and lots of people joined us....it was rather crowded but we added to the crowd and were able to chat away as we went!
A shot of all of as we stood in the lines...
A shot of some of our family in the car behind us when they turned ....and then Santa!
Eli's first time on Santa's lap....he was SO excited. He asked for a Lollipop! That's pretty easy.
Devon told him he wanted a real motorcycle and a lollipop....I sense a theme here.
Rebecca wanted a lollipop too.
Joe has other ideas for gifts but enjoyed Santa too.
Here is our crew waiting in line but the house made of KitKat bars...they wanted to know if they could eat their way through.
We then rode through the the Hersehy light display ....holiday music and lots and lots of lights to be seen.
We headed back to the Danekers for yummy pizza with family...Darrell met us there. He had been to a Flyers game with his sister, Suzy.
We travel to Delaware and Pennsylvania for Thanksgiving! We arrived around 1am and were able to sleep in. We then headed to a Cracker Barrell to eat dinner with family. It was wonderful to eat yummy food, relax, and focus on family.
We then headed to the Danekers. The kids played games together, the adults caught up on the latest news and then we ate later in the day. It was good to be together.
Ben had eye surgery in November. It was a wonderful experience...well at least as wonderful as it can get for surgery. We headed up to David's house the night before and they pampered us with a warm meal and lots of wonderfully freshly baked desserts. We traveled up with Kiara who kept me company while Ben was in surgery.
On his return two week check up....we had snow on we way up. It sure was pretty.
Ben was eager to take lots of pictures.
When we met with the Doctor, she said his eye was perfect now....can't get better than perfection now, huh? So thankful for a good experience and outcome!
