Carson and the Lions, Up Close and Personal!

We were able to make it to the zoo on a December day.  It was perfect with beautiful 50 degree weather, no crowd at all, and very active animals!  We've never seen the lions so active there before.  As most of you know, this is Carson's favorite animals, so he was thrilled!  I feel so fortunate to live so close to such a great place to take a day trip to!  Carson will be excited to see this post, as he will no longer have to look at these pictures on my camera and can see them bigger.

Christmas 2011

This felt like the busiest Christmas season to date!  Between daycare, preschool, school, friend, and family holiday gatherings, we were kind of all over the place.  None the less, it was a great one.  Unfortunately, I didn't get very many present opening pictures.  We were too excited to think about the camera.  Hopefully, grandma got some good ones!  Thanks to all of you who not only helped to make our holidays so happy, but also to those who bring us joy throughout the year.  Hope you and yours had a very Merry Christmas!

Earlier in December, Carson's daycare hosted a Christmas meal where the children performed a few songs and we all had lunch together.  On top of that, they had Santa come in just before break began and gave all of the children a gift.  Although I couldn't join, Auntie Em' got to go and enjoy the festivities.  

Ice skating was a first Carson experienced over break.  He had been roller skating so he was feeling pretty confident.  He LOVED it.  I think the adults were wore out way before he was!

Both Kalie and Emily were his skating buddies most of the time.  

Doing it on his own..! :)
