Fun Weekend!

Saturday evening we headed to downtown Greenville for some dinner and shopping. Downtown really gets you in the holiday spirit. We visited the Holiday Village where they had snow falling down and Rafe and Cory rode the carousel. We even bumped into Santa Claus! Rafe was most excited about the huge nutcracker outside of the gigantic toy store!

Sunday night we went with Gram and Pop to Roper Mountain for the holiday lights. They had changed it a lot since we had been two years ago. You are now able to get out of your car and visit the Winter Wonderland. We had our picture made in Santa's sleigh, roasted marshmallows, and ate smores. Everyone was frustrated with me because I agreed to stand in line for Rafe to get a balloon from the elf. The line was REALLY long, but Rafe was determined to get one (after multiple bribes to leave). Anyway, after 45 minutes of waiting he finally got his reindeer antlers. The elf told us the balloons would last for 3 weeks, but he doesn't know my child! Rafe had the nose popped in the car on the way home! UGGHHH! After waiting half the day for the balloon Rafe forgot all about the real reason we were there - to see the lights. We even let him sit in the front seat with Daddy and Pop, but he was not interested in the least. He played will all of the gadgets in the car, tried to wrestle Pop and played in the glove compartment. Needless to say, if we go back this year I will be taking him by myself!!
