It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

We decided to take in the lights at the Memphis Zoo which we have never done before. I got so wrapped up in the family fun that I didn't take as many pics as I had intended. It was very cold... (cold for us in the mid-south) All my northern friends stop laughing now.

We broke out the mittens, hats, and swaddled Little Man aptly. He slept through the whole evening which was nice to be able to focus on the girls. Daddy and Big Sis went on a 3-D snow ride while Lil' Sis and Mom discussed Santa Claus. She said that she wanted to give him a big hug, so he would give her a big Barbie house to take home. She gave me permission to sit on his lap and get one too--I declined.

Big Sis says that she is glad that she knows "Santa's fake" so she will not be scared of him anymore. Looks like we need to read and watch The Polar Express a few more times. We have chosen not to agree with her developing opinion. We just ask her what she thinks about the whole deal. We shall see Christmas morning.
