Lane's preschool put on a Christmas program on Sunday, December 8, 2013. It was during their church service and all of the 3 and 4 year olds performed. Lane's class dressed up as angels, and judging from the last few school programs he has been in, this costume was a questionable one! He surprised us all and actually smiled, sang, stood up, and did (mostly) as he should! He did get a little silly with his buddy behind him, and kept turning around laughing, but it was a great improvement from last year when he just sat on the stair and refused to sing or smile. He looked pretty cute in his wings and halo!
They sang about 8 songs total. Lane's favorites to sing were "Away in a Manger," "Oh Come Let us Adore Him," "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star," and "Do You Know Why?'
He kept putting his hands in his pockets!
Forgot the hand movement memo!
This was the weekend of the huge ice storm that hit DFW. Mums had already planned to come for a long weekend so she could see the performance, so she went ahead and came Thursday night. It's a good thing, because DFW was hit hard with 3-4 inches of ice and pretty much the whole area shut down. Austin had no ice, just cold weather, so once she was in town she was safe! Poor Gran ended up being stuck in Arlington and wasn't able to come. We missed her!

The temps in Austin were really low, so we did minimal shopping and running around. We cooked at home a few nights and went out to eat once or twice. Lane bundled up in his bear slippers and hat and decided to scare Mums one morning.
We spent a lot of time in our jammies and Lane enjoyed getting out his interactive Christmas ornaments and books that Gran has given us from Hallmark in the past years.
We also read lots of books.
Scout stayed close to the fire most of the weekend and guarded her bone from Finley. She will seriously lay with her bone like this for hours!
Lane joined her while watching cartoons.
The ice in DFW finally began to melt and Mums made it home safe and sound on Monday. We had a fun weekend!
