Merry Christmas

May you get all the gifts you wish for...
And have a little Christmas spirit...
And sing some Christmas carols....

Going to the Zoo

There's nothing more refreshing than going to the zoo to see the OUTSIDE Festival of Lights in 20-30 degree weather, especially when you forget the stroller. But we had our fun at the zoo this past Monday after trying to schedule a time to go and consistently having bad weather. On Saturday, the weather prediction for Monday was a high of 52. Sounds great for December, right? Well, it was 52 that day at about 0400am and then it just got colder throughout the day. At least there was no rain. And the lights were awesome!

Late entree

In all the hustle and bustle of getting ready for Christmas, I have missed adding anything to this blog. So this week, you will be inundated with pictures that have been loading up on the camera (after all, our memory card holds around 300 pictures, and we have two memory cards!!!). Thanksgiving was great - we celebrated up in Brunswick with my family and then celebrated my Grandma's birthday that same day. Mom and I went out shopping on the dreaded Friday after Thanksgiving at 0700 - which was earlier enough for us, but not early enough to get the annual JCPenney Mickey Mouse Christmas globe! Can you believe that? We also went to the Cleveland Botannical zoo because they had an amazing display of Gingerbread houses.
