Bundled up kids, handed them hot chocolate & cookies and drove around to look at the Christmas lights. We headed to the Riverwalk, where we actually got out of the car and started walking through the gorgeous lights display, but it felt too sketchy out there in the dark with myself & 3 little ones...and a few junked-out cars in the parking lot, a lone man smoking a cig, 3 teenagers in-and-out of the bathroom, and thoughts of a recent downtown stabbing playing through my mind. We were out of there in less than a minute. The kids were bummed, so we'll go back when Mimi & Papa are here.
Our Christmas Party! We made these adorable Jolly Elf ornaments, decorated cookies, exchanged ornaments & ate lots of yummy food.
