We did it....we made it back to Six Flags in cold weather! We froze, but we had a great time! I got to go sledding this time!! I have not come down a sled run since....well, I don't remember when! After I went down with her, I talked Em into giving it a go on her own...she loved it! We found Santa, so the kids got to visit with him for a bit....and I got a picture or two. We were only there a couple of hours, but by that time both kids were red faced and we were all cold.
All bundled up
Santa was trying to make sure there was a GIRL under that hat!!
On the way home, we pulled up beside this Santa on a motorcycle. The kids determined he couldn't be the real one....the real Santa would have been in a sleigh!!

**ALERT** Heavy picture post!!!
We've been twice this season. Jeff and I took the kids last weekend and then the kids and I met Sissy and Davy yesterday afternoon. The crowds were very small and the lines really short when we got there yesterday. The kids (all 4 of them!) took full advantage! First, Wyatt decided he would attempt the Bobsled...a roller coaster of sorts. He's not exactly the brave kid so this shocked us and Sissy was quick to get him in line before he changed his mind! And he did....but she made him go anyway! When it was all over, he loved it and wants to go again. After that we headed to the other side of the park....to the Frosty Snow Hill. **Side note here** We tied a record HIGH temp of 73 degrees yesterday!! Yes, the temp was 73 and my kids went sledding!! I had a blast watching them....and they had a great time too! There was virtually NO line so they ran back up and went again! If not for having my camera so I could take pictures of them having fun, I would have been right there with them!! After that we were riding what ever we came to next. We had a great time, ate some yummy food and were wiped out when we left! The kids slept all the way home. We are supposed to have a cold *arctic blast* blow through here tonight. Hopefully when Jeff and I take the kids back tomorrow night, it will feel more like Christmas weather! I have pictures from both visits. The first few will be from our trip last week.
Spinning (and giggling) in the Tea Cups

Sledding...again, all 4 of the *kids* had a great time!!
