Zoolight Safari

On Wednesday night, we headed out to Zoolight Safari.  It was our first go-round with this event, and we had mild weather (60 degrees) and a good time!!
First, we ate at the zoo cafe--and B loved looking at the Christmas tree:
Next, we headed to the carousel. Unlike EVERY other time we'd been to the zoo, B DID NOT like the carousel. He cried the entire time. No photos!
So we admired the lights and headed to the zoo choo. B had a great time on the zoo choo and loved looking at lights (and seeing Santa along the way)!

I was pretty impressed with the lights, but my photos--not so impressive:

We headed home soon after. Now we are just waiting for Santa:
B is saying, "Ho, ho, ho. Merry Christmas!" He's wishing for "a digger" and a "choo choo." We'll have to see what Santa brings. B certainly has been a good boy!

Christmas Round One

This past weekend, we traveled to Georgia for a Christmas celebration with my mom's family.  We were especially glad to see Bea, my 91-year-old grandmother.  B really enjoyed playing with Lily, my cousin's 4-year-old daughter:
He especially loved the "hot dog," which was the missing leg of one of Lily's Barbies:
He loved opening presents and playing with his uncle Drew, too:

The trip was not without its drama, however.  Due to circumstances beyond his control (as he would say), H managed to leave Ollie, B's lovey, at a Picadilly restaurant in a bad part of Atlanta.  We survived Friday night without him and managed to get him on the way back Saturday.

This week: finish up work/school, Zoolight Safari, caroling with the neighbors, and getting ready for Christmas!
