Sunday night, we took the girls to the zoo to see the Christmas lights. Every year, they have such a beautiful exhibit, and this year was even more *new and improved*. Unfortunately, the weather forecast was actually right and as soon as the sun went down, it started snowing huge, wet snowflakes. We all had on about three layers underneath our winter coats, scarves, hats and gloves and we left soaked in snow from head to toe, but I am so glad we went. It was a great night out seeing the beautiful lights.
And may I just point out that Leila - my second grader - is wearing my boots. MY BOOTS!! As in size 9.5 women's. And they really weren't that big on her. That is just wrong!
I had a fun time playing around with the lights, too. I call this series, "Intentional Blur with a few Psychedelic Effects." :)
I took the Christmas decorations down today. That is always such a depressing day for me. My house feels bare now. I typically let them stay up until after New Year's, but tomorrow is house cleaning day and it just made sense to take them down today. On the bright side, at least I'll start out the New Year this year with this task already done. I guess that will be nice.
