Christmas in Ohio

We made it to Ohio last Friday safely, although a bit late. We didn't arrive at Columbus Airport until after midnight. Lots of flights were delayed and the airport was packed! We were so hungry, too, that we had to stop for milkshakes and hamburgers! SJ was deliriously tired and gave us a little of a hard time on the plane, but thankfully she didn't have a full blown meltdown.

On Sunday night we headed to Columbus Zoo for the Zoo Lights display. It was kind of a spur of the moment decision to go. We were close to the zoo while out shopping and decided to give it a look. Thankfully my Mom had just shopped at Kohl's for my Dad and had 2 extra pairs of gloves and 2 extra hats for us. I didin't have a hat, but then my Dad reminded me that we had the OSU Santa hat in the car that I could wear. No where else could I get away with an Ohio State Santa hat and not be laughed at than in Columbus, Ohio! It ended up being a very warm hat, too! As soon as we got to the zoo we had to go rent a stoller and buy a blanket. Yes, the gift shop sold blankets as well as scarves, gloves and hats. I can imagine they sell alot of them on nights like this - it was cold and windy. We wrapped SJ up in the blanket and placed her in the stoller. She was snug as a bug and said she was nice and warm.

We didn't see many animals, but we did see reindeer and goats. While there we got a snow squall. We had just bought some hot chocolate when the snow started. It fell fast and furious and we found some shelter in the petting zoo barn. It stopped about 10 minutes later and then we headed for home. It was a quick trip made even more festive by the falling snow!

Christmas Eve we headed to my Aunt and Uncles house. SJ was the center of attention and enjoyed jumping on many of Aunt Linda's big stuffed Santa's!

Looks like SJ has a career in professional wrestling!
