December


We had snow about a week ago! It snowed pretty hard for a few hours and we had a few inches, but by the next morning it mostly just ice:( We did venture out that night to watch the Fredericksburg Town Christmas Parade and it was COLD! Savannah only lasted through the first half before her wet mittens and cold nose spoiled it for her, but Michael made it through the whole parade. We have good friends whole live right on the main street where the parade rolls through and we were able to watch the rest of the parade from the warmth of their living room.

Yesterday we visited the National Museum of the Marine Corps to see Santa! The Museum was much more of a hit then Santa was...

This was a close as Savannah would get! Michael asked for a batman racecar and a stop sign (what?) and Savannah whispered that she would like a puppy and Diego toy.

After our visit, we walked quickly through the museum, which deserves HOURS to wander through. Michael and Savannah walked most of the way through looking straight up at the ceiling and needed to be reminded to watch where they were going about sixteen times! Everywhere where you look, there are Marines repelling from ropes, helicopters and old planes suspended from the roof...and of course all the reminders of what makes the Marines the most awesome fighting force in the world!

So glad you guys had a good visit at the museum. Don't worry your daughter wasn't the only shy one around Santa. Hope you don't mind I posted a link to this entry on the Museum's Facebook page. Its always fun to see and read our visitor's experiences.

We hope you come back and visit us again!
