Hey folks! Since I haven't done one of these posts for a week or two, it's more like a "half a month in photos" post! (Don't worry. I tried not to go too crazy since I have a lot of pictures from the past couple of weeks and made them into collages. :D )
Since we won't be able to do anything fun like this for much longer with baby sister coming, we went to see the lights at the zoo after one of my doctor's appointments since we were already in Indianapolis. She was really excited to ride on the train. Can you tell?
We also attempted a Christmas festival in a nearby town one Saturday, but I think we got there too late for all of the kids stuff. She still had fun going on a wagon ride pulled by horses. She actually did not get her face painted there: John did that when we got home. (More on that in a second.)
THIS is why we happened to have face paint! Baby Starfish, as we've been calling her and hence the picture on the right, has kind of gotten the shaft since we already have a girl, so we thought it would be fun to still do the whole belly painting thing with her. We painted a pumpkin with Myka since she was born in October. ;)
Btw, Myka has been totally obsessed with having kitty cat faces since John painted her face the first time. She's always asking for it now!
We made our first Yule log this year. Unfortunately, the weather's been so crappy and we don't have a fireplace or wood burning stove inside, so we haven't even been able to burn it yet. :/
Myka had fun with Christmas this year since she's old enough to be excited about presents. We only bought her a couple of things since I feel like the random things we buy her throughout the year is enough, but she got plenty from family. We actually stayed at my parents house for Christmas, but I will admit it was fun to see her face when she was the presents under the tree. :)
How was your holiday? Do you celebrate a holiday other than Christmas this time of year? I'd love to hear about your traditions!
