Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas, everyone! I hope it was a joyous day for all.

We had a lovely day at home today, enjoying our new gifts and each other’s company. Of course, there was a lot of Disney involved!







We will be headed up to New England over the weekend to celebrate with my family. You can’t have too much Christmas cheer!

Zoolights at the National Zoo

On Friday night, we went to Zoolights at the National Zoo in Washington D.C.


We got to see a few animals, visit the model train exhibit, ride the carousel, take a train ride, and enjoy many holiday lights around the zoo.


The carousel had lots of different animals that we could ride. Scarlett picked a flamingo. Luke rode the eagle.

Luckily, it wasn’t as cold as it has been in years past, so we got to enjoy being outdoors.


The kids really enjoyed watching these flowers change color. Luke’s favorite was green and Scarlett’s was purple.


We got to see some sleeping gorillas! That was the highlight of the night.


This LEGO city was pretty cool.



This little train was a really fun ride. We traveled around the farm area. The kids really enjoyed this. We might have gone again if the line wasn’t so long.

I always enjoy the zoo, and Zoolights is another fun way to enjoy it. It makes the holiday season a little more special.

‘Frozen’ Fever

On Thanksgiving, we went to see Frozen, the new animated Disney movie. I was surprised at how great the Broadway-style music was, and enjoyed all the cute characters from new Disney Princesses to a talking , Summer-loving snowman.


And now, Scarlett is obsessed. She was singing along with the songs the first time she heard them. She cannot get enough. We went back to the theater two more times this weekend. And of course, we got some Anna and Elsa dolls to join us.


I ended up buying the soundtrack and we’ve been listening to it non-stop. Do you want to build a snowman? Why, yes! Yes, we do.
