Thanksgiving Point Christmas

Scott, Lucy and I have been sick for about 2.5 weeks.
It comes and goes and kind of has us feeling blue.

So, on Saturday we decided to drag our sorry selves out of the house and get in the Christmas spirit.  And since it was raining, Thanksgiving Point seemed like the perfect choice.  Sometimes it is just nice driving around to see the lights, versus walking out in the cold.  So, we bundled up, had a nice little dinner in the cafe and saw some lights.

We did the same thing last year because we didn't want to take Lucy out in the cold.  Last year was memorable for two reasons.

1-Scott was freaked out because a random kid kept wanting to see Lucy and kept trying to take the blankets off her stroller to peak.

Scott:  The baby is asleep
Kid: No it isn't.  I hear her.
Kid:  I like babies.
Kids:  Can I see the baby?

Scott, super stressed out, keeps moving the stroller farther and farther away, until he finally gives up and takes Lucy out to the car.

2-Lucy cried through the entire thing, and I sat in the back seat nursing her as we drove through.

This year was memorable because Lucy slept through the entire thing.  Try as I might, I couldn't wake her up.  After awhile, it just seemed cruel, so we let her sleep.  She woke up approximately 2 minutes after we finished.  This year was also memorable because she threw a mini tantrum in the store (tantrums are very new) and a huge pile of snow fell on our heads as we walked around the plaza.

We came home refreshed and happy.  It was a quiet, nice night, just the 3 of us.

Love the pictures, and I love that you and Scott always get into funny adventures and situations. Merry Christmas, hope you have a great one!

We always love that tradition. Seeing the lights is so fun. What is the deal with people not respecting the blanket covering? That has happened to us before and its so frustrating.

Sorry you guys have been sick. It is kinda never ending this time of year!
