Wild and Crazy Animals: Last night, we went to visit Erin, Ember, Jetta, and Jazzy. Dalton sure loves doggies. Maggie was scared of Jetta, who is bigger than she, after all. On the way home, we took the long route, then drove up each street in our neighborhood looking at the Christmas lights.

Maggie was the special helper in preschool today. She picked "windy" for the weather, got to be the line leader and choose beads first (I don't know what that means), and got a fancy sticker.

Today was the first free zoo day of winter. We carpooled with Tasha in her fancy van. It was supposedly supposed to snow (I don't pay attention to things like weather predictions) but the weather was actually very nice. It sprinkled on us for a few minutes, but that's it. It was too cold for the elephants, but we watched as they let the giraffes out. One of them was literally cavorting around, he was so excited to be outdoors. We got to see one of the tigers up close, too.

Dalton has spent the past 5 minutes jumping off a chair into Maggie's arms. He spent the previous 10 minutes jumping off the chair and landing head-first on the floor, so I guess this is an improvement.

Maggie made me a present and told me I couldn't open it until Christmas, by which she means tomorrow. She thinks tomorrow is Christmas because she gets to open one of her presents (a Lego advent calendar from Uncle Leonard).

John is out of town. I have another home improvement project planned for tonight, and Erin lent me The Help.
