We picked up Cuzzy from her house; this is actually the house Momma and Myself grew up in as well as all other 7 of Mommas brothers and sisters. The Baby (Auntie S) owns it now and Cuzzy is The Baby's Baby (got it). The house use to have a huge Sycamore tree in front of it...it was said the tree was as old as the house (built and been in the family since 1880ish).Mamma and Pappa used to have hundreds of wooden decorations that they had built together adorn the lawn...at one time there was a flying sleigh with Santa in it that went from the tree to the roof top...whimsi runs in the family. Auntie 's house is only decorated on the outside because they are remodeling the inside - she was a little bummed she could not show me her snowman collection of over 300!! I think the ones in the yard are too cute!
As we entered the Zoo we were greeted by the LARGEST nutcracker I have ever seen. Adorable! Tons of lights and tons of peeps!
How magical to be a child and visit the Zoo during such a festive time.
