We drove through Christmas in the Park at Longview Lake this evening. Violet screamed the whole time. It was very enjoyable. I did manage to get these shots on the SLR by slowing down the shutter speed and of course no flash.


After our big day yesterday we went out to dinner to celebrate Chris's 33rd birthday and then came home and Violet made a snow cake.
We had some snow tuesday night and last night I brought some in to let Violet play with it. She wasn't quite sure what to do with it. I think the dogs were more excited about it than she was. Willow loves snow. Especially if you make snow balls and throw them for her. She goes crazy.

Much better this time around.
We had a big day today. All of us had our eyes checked. Violet's eyes are great. Our eye Dr. offers the InfantSEE program. Our pediatrician recommended it and it's free for 6mon-12mon olds. She did great and didn't fuss once. I was expecting her to be fussy when they dilated her eyes but she was fine. I on the other had hate having that done. I got such a bad headache I got sick to my stomach and had to take a nap.
After everyones nap we decide to go see the santa at OP Mall. A much better set up. I love this photo. We had them take photos too, but the ones I took turned out so much better. I'm not a super fan of the staged, looking at the camera photos. This is a great candid shot!

It is officially time to haul out the heavy duty coat and hat. I bought this coat last February for $5. It was a $35 OshKosh coat I found at BabysRUs. Love a deal and figured it was only $5 so if it didn't fit her when the time came, I wasn't out a whole lot.
Luckily she doesn't fight putting it on and doesn't have a problem with hats. She's still not sure about the mittens. She just tries to eat them.

We heard that Santa and his reindeer where going to be at Heartland Nursery yesterday so we decided to check it out. No smiles out of Violet. She didn't warm up till we were about to leave, as you can tell from the second to last photo. She looks so smug.
