Santa, Buddy the Elf and Aaron Rodgers

Bo came racing up the stairs this morning, flying around the corner into the bathroom and shouted, "Mama! Buddy the Elf drank wine last night with Santa and Aaron Rodgers!!"

I'm still smiling over last night's Buddy adventure. :)  I found the boys' Go Fish card game, a bottle of red wine I bought for stews and created a late-night card game for Buddy with our Santa and Shawn's Aaron Rodgers hand puppet. By the way, Violet LOVE the Rodgers puppet. She smiles and shrieks and laughs every time Shawn plays with it.

So, today's advent message said, "Get ready because tonight we're going to Holly Jolly Lights!" After work, I picked up Mazy and Shawn picked up Bo and Violet and we all met at La Hacienda Mexican restaurant for a delightful supper together. Everyone was in a great mood. The food was delicious. Violet slept through our meal, so we were just finishing up as she woke up and was ready to eat. She downed two things of baby food and some puffs, and really, really wanted to get her hands on the fried ice cream I ordered for us to share. But she didn't get any. We're not repeating the weekend's gasathon...

Anyway, then we went to Holly Jolly Lights. There was no line and we breezed right through, getting to enjoy the light displays at our own pace. It was awesome!!!

And then we came home and I read to Bo from "Farmer Bo." In tonight's chapter, the school teacher beats up a big bully student with an ox whip! Pioneer times -- they weren't for the faint of heart.

Tomorrow is my company work party. I probably won't be blogging. It starts at 3:15 and goes to midnight.... Shawn will be home with the gang. Have a great Thursday, everyone. Oh, and happy 12/12/12! Shawn says it is Aaron Rodgers Day in Green Bay, because he's No. 12. I don't know if that's true, but Shawn would know if anyone did...
