Looking at lights! (Celebration #22)

Tonight we did something I've been looking forward to for a while: the Emperor and I went out for a walk and looked at the lights/decorations on our street! It was cold and dark and my feet hurt like they always do now, but it was worth it for the look on his face and his general enthusiasm about the event. And I loved seeing the lights too.

Not much else to say today! Just pictures!

Across the street

Decorations across the street from us. Frosty 'Noman AND Santa! He loved these.

Grazing reindeer

Animatronic reindeer... these were by far his favorite decoration. We probably spent about 10 minutes (divided over two visits, one on the way out and one on the way back) just gazing at these. He was just so delighted: "Reindeer! The reindeer are EATING GRASS mommy!" Love it. They made a great mechanical squeaky noise when they moved too.

And even more.

I had coffee date with my friend Amey this afternoon and mentioned that my blog mostly hasn't been about food this month. The honest truth of the matter is that I just have no enthusiasm for cooking or really eating right now... same thing happened at the end of my last pregnancy. Weird, huh? But you can rest assured that eventually... this blog will be more food, less random photos of the Emperor doing things.

Just not any time SOON, people!

Okay, last picture of my kid for today. Smooch:

One kiss
