My enthusiasm seems to be contagious as this year to celebrate my son, Jaden's, 13th birthday, instead of gifts he requested a family adventure which this past Saturday led us to a little town known as Monroe, Louisiana.
Now if you are a Duck Dynasty fan a trip to that town would seem pretty awesome anytime of year, but this past Saturday, the town of Monroe was celebrating COMMANDER CHRISTMAS making the entire day quite epic.
Our trip began before daybreak. Apparently Elvis and Cane hoped for a glimpse of the commander family too.
We were some of the first to arrive for the day which offered us some of the sights all to ourself!
Tommy was even interviewed by a local news team. You can check out his television debut HERE.
The highlight of the day came when my four kiddos got to share the stage with Lil' Willie, John Luke, and Sadie Robertson. (You'll notice that my kids are center stage while those other people are just off to the side. There's no denying they were the real stars of the day!)
And an extra special treat was when the kids were joined on stage by Korie and Ms. Kay. Ms. Kay patted the birthday boy's hand and commented how cute my four kids are. She's very wise.
The evening ended with a flotilla including the Robertson family and a Christmas laser show. The laser show left something to be desired and we left before it was over.
There are still two more birthday's to celebrate in our home before December is over. They are sure to be celebrated with just as much enthusiasm and joy as the first two!
I love Christmas-time, y'all!
