Saturday night we traveled to Bethlehem (in Bartlesville). The church were Carson grew up has what they call "Bethlehem in Bartlesville". Carson and I have been before but we wanted to take Maddie. Grandma Ann, Grandpa Roy and Cousin Skyler were actors in the city. It was alot of fun and Maddie got to see her first camel. Her name was Elizabeth and she stayed at Carson's parents house over the weekend. Bethlehem in Bartlesville is a must see for anyone that lives close by.
On Sunday night we braved some very cold temperatures and wind to go to the Chirstmas Train in Pryor, OK. Despite the freezing temps we had alot of fun and plan on going back next year. After arriving at the park you board a train and it takes you on a story thru Jesus's life. It was absolutely beautiful and shows you the true meaning of Christmas. After riding the train we headed out on foot thru the little western town and enjoyed some shopping and hot cocoa.
Our weekend was packed full of fun and we plan on making these some of our family traditions while we are living in Tulsa. We are looking forward to Christmas and cannot wait to celebrate Maddie's first Christmas. We will be traveling to Arkansas and Carson's family will be joining us.
