We are finally getting into the holiday spirit here at the Hathaway's! We have the tree up and (most) of the lights up outside. And a trip to Woolaroc to see those lights and have a visit with Santa helped Evan to go from being ho-hum to HO! HO! HO!
It is hard to believe how terrified Evan used to be of Santa. Now he acts as if they are old buddies and he just chats him up. And tonight, he hit him up for all kinds of safety gear. Hard hats, goggles and some other essential equipment I am fairly certain he made up. However, since this is the first time it was mentioned, I don't think Santa is going to be able to pull off the request.
Libby wants absolutely nothing to do with the man. I was hoping she would kind of "get it" this year...but she is loving all of the other Christmas fun. Especially the lights, the goodies and the nutcrackers.
A trip to Woolaroc wouldn't be complete without a stop at the petting zoo and it was by far the kids' favorite part. There is a new baby donkey and both Evan and Libby were smitten. Poor momma was getting jealous so we tried to make sure she got lots of love pats too!
