Christmas at the Zoo 2013

We got a new membership to the Indianapolis Zoo for Christmas from Aunt Lucy, Aunt Malena, Uncle John, and Uncle Primmer, and what better way to start using it than attending Christmas at the Zoo?! It was unseasonably warm, which made the experience even better, and the lights were absolutely beautiful! There were even a couple of reindeer who flew in for the event. Unfortunately, you deleted the pictures of them off my phone before I got a chance to upload them. Hopefully next year we’ll get some good photos of them.
Of course, we had to make sure we rode the ever popular train around the zoo grounds. The line was the longest we’ve ever seen it, but it was one swift ride around. We were going so fast pictures were hard to take of all the lights.

We also discovered that you are a huge fan of hot chocolate, which you call hot cho cho! You loved it! Unfortunately, we couldn’t get you to pose with any of the light statues, but you were determined to get some photos with the stone statue outside the entrance. What a silly girl you are!20140113-160423.jpg

Thanksgiving 2013

This year we stayed home for Thanksgiving and Mimi Deb, Papa Dick, and Mimi Wolf came down to visit and eat a bunch of yummy food with us! While they were here, they put up a huge wall decal in your room of a tree with birds and butterflies. I covers an entire wall! You had a blast helping them. You are a master imitator!

Mimi and Papa decided to stay at a hotel Thanksgiving night so we could take you swimming, which was your first time ever in a pool! You absolutely loved it and was in no way scared or intimidated at all!

Boilermaker or Hoosier?!

Recently you learned how to say IU, so I thought it only appropriate to try to teach you how to say Purdue.  It is definitely a work in progress!

 

Fall fun!

Today we spent the day outside doing yard work. Mommy had plans to clean flower beds and flower boxes out, but you had other ideas. You quickly discovered playing in a leaf pile is great fun!

Of course, the day wouldn’t be complete without a tricycle ride sporting your new Dora light-up shoes.
