Our weekend!

So as some of you know, Cooper got an elf right after Thanksgiving! His name is Bing and he is a naughty elf. He is really good during the day but gets into trouble at night. He has done lots of bad things but this was one of Cooper's favorite things that Bing did one night. We had made cookies the night before and apparently Bing was watching us. When we woke up the next morning, this is what we found....Bing had made him some cookies too. This past weekend we went on our annual Gatlinburg trip with my Dad, Ms. Gail, Grandma and Pop. As usual we had a great time! We had a nice chalet with lots of fun games to play. We stayed so busy with lots of fun activities! Here is Chris and the boys hanging out on Saturday morning.
Papaw and Hudson
Cooper had been talking about wanting to go ice skating for the past week so we decided that we would let him try but figured that he would quit as soon as he got out on the ice. We were wrong! He LOVED it!!
Me, Cooper and Ms. Gail "trying" to help Cooper skate! Thankfully Ms. Gail is a good skater b/c I am not and she really helped me out with Cooper!
Holding on for dear life!!
Mommy and Cooper

Taking a break!
So Hudson decided that he did not want to miss out on the fun so I took him around first with his shoes on but then.....
with his own ice skates which he DID NOT like!
Me and my boys!
Chris, Cooper and I after we finished ice skating!
Outside the ground was covered in snow so of course both the boys loved playing in the snow.

On Saturday night we went to Dollywood for their Christmas events. It was decorated so pretty! The boys rode some rides and had a great time looking at all of the lights! We had so much fun that we went back on Sunday afternoon. Some of you already know but we had an episode on Sunday at Dollywood. We were riding the 1950's style cars with the boys when Chris told me he felt funny. He thought that he was ok so he and Hudson proceeded to get on the car and Cooper an I were in the car behind him. When I looked up on the ride as Chris and Hudson were making a turn, I noticed that Chris looked funny. Unfortunately he was having a seizure. I started screaming for them to turn off the ride and they called the EMT's immediately. They were all so helpful! We had to take him to the ER and they kept him for several hours to monitor him! We sent the boys home with my Dad and Ms. Gail while Chris' parents, Chris and I stayed an extra night in Gatlinburg just to be close to a hospital in case something were to happen again. Needless to say we had a GREAT weekend until Sunday around 7:00! Anyways I will leave you with a picture of the boys on a ride from Dollywood!

Hope that you all had a great weekend!
