After checking out Peteyville, we headed back to our car and listened to the display narration on 88.5 FM. It was filled with facts ranging from their weekly electric costs to the amount of amps from their dedicated power feed.
Here's a short video I took as we drove off to head back home. Take a gander!
If you're up for a road trip or are in the area be sure to check out Peteyville.
For a Christmas tree, Chuck Norris simply roundhouse kicks down a redwood and carries it home!*
You may remember Red from last year – Our Immature Elf on the Shelf.
This year he seems a bit of a wreck from a recent break-up. He’d never hit so hard in love.
Earlier this week I was awakened in the middle of the night to the sound of Miley Cyrus playing in the family room.
I have no idea how he managed to get a wrecking ball into our house, but I took a picture and submitted it to the #inappropriateElf Contest.
When Chuck Norris falls in love, he breaks it.*

The fam and I attended the Chicago Toy and Game Fair at Navy Pier over the weekend.
The two-day extravaganza didn't disappoint!
In between chasing Big Guy we were able to catch a magic act, check out awesome games and toys, and take part in Playdate Planet's event to set a Guinness World Record.
(And yes, the Hubs is sporting a Movember 'stache.)
Everywhere we looked there seemed to be Star Wars characters.
Big Guy wasn't sure what to think of the Stormtroopers.
We spent a good amount of our time on Sunday at the Playdate Planet event.
Both of the kids enjoyed running around prior to the Guinness World Records attempt for the most participants in a clapping game (Double This Double That).
Afterwards they jammed out at the MCR Group booth.
When we finally called it a day, it didn't take long for both of them to fall asleep.
Definitely a parenting win!
Correct sentence structure, Yoda used. Before Chuck Norris' foot, he met.*
