Parties and Parades and MRIs - Oh my!

So far so good...we have had a fun filled weekend. Ella celebrated her 5th birthday (not until 12/4) on Friday night with 4 girlfriends along with Lofton, Kingston and Jude (Mimi, Pops, Nana and Pepaw were also in attendance). The girls ate, made Hello Kitty cookies (with their Hello Kitty aprons), gingerbread houses and gingerbread men in the time span of 2 hours with LOTS of help from Aunt Jamie, Nana and Mimi (thanks girls). Ella also managed to open some presents in that time frame. The boys were crazy - as usual - but had fun and even managed to make a gingerbread man with their Superman aprons. Saturday brought the exciting WH Christmas parade followed by a trip Kubuto with Mimi, Pops and Jenna and then off to Opryland Hotel to see Santa (who is wonderful by the way), break my camera and briefly look at lights. Afterward we hit Ice where we had a great time in the provided blue coats looking at the Grinch that Stole Christmas story and sliding down an ice slide. We are capping off the weekend with Jude's MRI in the morning. I will add pictures soon - luckily my camera is not fully out of working order!
