Scavenger Hunt Sunday

It's the holiday season ... a time for seeing family and stressing out about how to fit seeing family when you only have two days off work.  Yeah ... My days are so messed up right now!  I had Thursday and Friday off, but then I worked Saturday, and I'm going into work today around noon.  Today is Sunday ... right?  Hope so because I have some fun pictures to share.

Black and White
This is our Christmas tree topper.  Friday night we put the Christmas tree up ... well, Leah and Andrew put stuff up ... I watched and took pictures, lol.  Leah really enjoyed putting the ornaments on and she loves our tree.  Yay for Christmas decorations!

I am horrible at taking pictures of food ... I think it's because I'm distracted by the food.  We had lots and lots of yummy food at Thanksgiving and by the time I thought of taking a picture; it was all gone!  We did eat turkey (not these ... these live in the zoo, no worries), but I did eat turkey, lol.  Ok ... I thought it was funny.

These are my Papa's old film cameras.  There is so much history in these cameras.  My mom has them and she has tried to refurbish them, but maybe one day I can fix them and use them!  My Mema says I get my natural photography 'skills' from my Papa.  His favorite pictures to take were "making bees and ants look big on flowers" (from Mema).

We went to the zoo for Audrey's birthday last Saturday.  Leah really wanted to see the hippos, but they are doing consturction to the zoo and the hippo area was blocked off.  We did get to see the rhinos who have two horns; as Leah pointed out again and again.

The End

Dinner after Thanksgiving was birthday cake for Audrey and my Dad (November birthdays).  This is 'the end' of her smash cake.  She loved it, as did everyone else ... and I got to clean her up ... woo hoo.

Oh and because I can't resist here are some more pictures of Audrey eating cake :-)
