One of my favorite things to do in the Columbus, Ohio winter is go see the holiday lights at The Columbus Zoo. This year was my first year with a baby so I wanted to go earlier than sunset (the animals go to sleep later) and see the animals. However, it happened to be Allison’s nap time and she was sleeping in the car ride up until the sun started to set. I think I will buy a zoo membership next summer so I can take her to see the animals and so I will have something to do on boring summer days. The zoo is only 20-25 minutes away from my house so it’s not a bad trip.
Allison LOVES her Curious George toy but because I’m a bad mom, I already lost TWO of her George stuffed animals. One that I received as a gift and one that I bought myself. I don’t know how he keeps escaping: I must not hear it when he falls out of the car seat and by the time I notice that he’s gone, it is already too late. I decided to use the Macy’s money I got from a previous purchase to buy her TWO more Curious George toys.
“The stockings were hung by the chimney with care…”
This quote does not really apply to my house because we do not have a chimney, and also the stockings are a cheap buy from our very first frugal Christmas. They are hung on the staircase ledge leading to the basement. I plan on buying better ornaments and decorations when we have a more permanent home, but for now what we have will suffice.
Gatlinburg is Up in Flames
These are the recent story headlines about the town of Gatlinburg, the town my family and close friends just visited about a month ago. I normally don’t pay attention to sad news stories due to this fact: they are sad. However, I could not help but notice that parts of the beautiful wooded town that we had just visited were being destroyed. I pray that those that were hurt will be okay and the souls that are dead are in a better place.
