We finally made it to Moody Gardens for the annual Festival of Lights display. We've been trying to get down there for 3 weeks now! It was great fun - better than I expected. :) The weather was perfect - cold, but not miserable and no rain! I loved all the music, and of course Elise was impressed by all the lights.
Elise took this one - not bad, just a bit blurry. :)

Elise's class party was last Thursday, and she and Jamie are now officially on a 2 week break from school. I am so jealous. I was in charge of decorations for the party, and we had a fun time. After the party Elise and I went to see Princess and the Frog, which was super cute. It was nice to sneak in a special one-on-one afternoon with my girl. :)

Every year in our town on the Saturday before Christmas, Santa comes down every single street in the firetruck and throws candy to all the kids...sirens blazing and all! As a kid, I looked forward to it so much, and now it's fun to watch Elise wave to Santa too. We started hearing the sirens close by around 9:30am, but it wasn't until around 2:30 that he came down our street. Talk about a long day of anticipation! Elise waited and waited, refusing to come inside. Jamie and I made the best of it and trimmed some bushes while we waited. Ha!

I simply could not believe Holly & Herman would do this.
However, Elise was pleased, because it meant she got to have an early Christmas present. ;)
Yesterday she noticed the Elves in her backpack just as we were leaving for school.
Unrelated to the Elves, we had snow yesterday! We did not get much accumulation at all, so that was disappointing to Elise, but the house looked pretty and frosty early this morning.
And Bailey has found a new friend. :)
