Christmas Wonder

Experiencing Christmas this year has made me feel like a little kid again.  This is the first year Ava really understands whats going on and I'm loving it.  We spent last night driving through Tilles Park to see thousands of lights.  The excitement in her voice as she pointed out everything she saw was making Steve and I laugh so hard and remember Christmas when we were little.  We then ate some yummy Greek food before we headed to Dan's Emerald Forest.  Dan's is just a house in a neighborhood that is pretty amazing.  Ava has been very into trains lately and this house has trains, lights, waterfalls and loads of other winter scenery throughout his entire front yard.  It was quite the site.  Ava was very excited for the entire night.  As we were driving home, she started to doze off in the back seat.  I asked very quietly if anyone would be interested in some ice cream.  She perked right back up and proceeded to eat over half of my mango frozen yogurt loaded up with fresh fruit from FroYo.  I think it's safe to say that she had a very good night last night.  Steve and I had a pretty amazing night, too.
