Last weekend, we decided to go check out the Christmas lights at a local park. It's a big drive-thru display, but we chose to go all out and take a carriage ride through the park instead. It was a little cold, but not bad at all since we were dressed for the occasion and also bundled up in blankets. :)
Manny was pretty quiet, but loved it and kept pointing at all the lights. I tried to take a few pictures of the lights, but with the bouncing of the carriage none of them turned out. But it was a great time and a fun memory for sure!
Then last Wednesday, we took Manny to see Santa. I just knew it would be a meltdown, and I was so excited for it. Ha! Does that officially make me a bad mom? All I mean by that is I love the crying pictures...they always make me laugh. Unfortunately Patrick fouled things up and tried really hard to keep Manny calm...and was pretty successful at it. Here is Manny looking at Santa while we were standing in line. You'll notice he was playing with his belly button, which is a major comfort thing for him. You can tell he was a little concerned at this point.
And when it was time to meet Santa, Patrick helped Manny get settled before he walked off. He didn't scream or throw a fit, just kind of whined. And this picture just makes me so sad. You can tell he's trying to be brave...I love it. :) Much different than our Santa pic last year where he wouldn't stop staring at Santa.
And I had to share this picture just because I came across it when looking for last year's Santa pic, and it just makes me laugh. Silly boy. :)
I can't believe Christmas is in less than a week! I need to get in gear and finish my shopping.
