The Lights Before Christmas

We went to the Columbia Zoo last night to take the kids to see ,The Lights Before Christmas.This was our 2nd time going, but Lilee's first. The kids really enjoyed it, except poor Siah hobbling around.

The kids finally got to see Santa! We took them to the mall a few weeks ago to see him but after 2 hours of waiting we had to leave for Basketball practice. I was so proud of Lilee! She was terrified of him last year but this year she walked right up to him and got on his lap all by herself. She was so excited afterward she told me "Santa nice mom!".

Lilee's first ride on a merry-go-round.

Siah having fun too! You can see Joel's back in the plaid shirt.

Santa's Train

Lilee was having a ball riding the train!

There was even snow(suds) at the entrance, the kids Favorite part!!! Fake but hey, it was 65 all evening. It has been in the mid 60's and 70's for a week now but the cold air has finally hit. This morning on our way to church it was 65 and by 4:55 it was 41. It is suppose to be in the 20's tonight. But I welcome it. I don't like a warm Christmas. I know I am weird!
Even though we did not get home until 10:30 all in all we had a great time!
