Thank you all for sharing in the lives of our three amazing children- Mairead, Jack, and Ben. We hope you visit often!

Last night, Dave and I took Mairead to the Stone Zoo for Zoolights- something the zoo does every year from Thanksgiving to Christmas. We had never been before, so this was a new experience for all of us. Basically, while the animals are all somewhere warm, the zoo is decorated with all kinds of lights and holiday displays. Kids can even visit with Santa. We did not do that since you had to stand in a long line in an enclosed space, and Mairead would have been on the naughty list if we tried that.

I didn't get a ton of pictures because she was always running off somewhere with poor Dave chasing her, but we had fun getting outside to enjoy the lights and some fresh air. It was a very Christmasy thing to do!

Her favorite- a giant clock.

Scariest Santa ever. He was up in a clock tower looking structure... he was creepy.

The other day, Mairead spent some quality time with Nana decorating the tree. She inspected every single ornament before it went up.

So far, we are really enjoying our Christmas season. We are still waiting for our most precious gift- baby girl Crowder! We hope that she comes soon since she was due 4 days ago. She will be worth the wait, though!
