Christmas cards and Zoo Lights

Phoebe's been very busy this week experimenting with watercolors and making Christmas cards for all her friends...



On Thursday last week we went to see "Zoo Lights" at the Phoenix Zoo.
The sign at the entrance.

The sign over the water.


Finally past all the signs!!


This is Naomi in front of the cafe (looking spooky under the many lights). We stopped for some snacks as it was dinner time.

Chloe waiting for her french fries.


We quickly ate some food and then onwards to the lights!


There were monkeys.


And bunnies.


And an amazing light spectacle over the pond.


This baby Komodo dragon was one of the few animals you could view during Zoo Lights and he was sleeping!


My only picture of Phoebe that night.


This is some kind of warthog.


This is the amazing spider web!


That's Mike underneath the amazing spider web!


2 loving snakes.


And a  beehive in a glowing tree.... (Did you sing it in your head?)


And here's a preying mantis.  

Zoo lights was a lot of fun.  I know people think this is a good thing to do with little children, but my teenagers had a great time, so I think it's for everyone.


Tonight is the third night of Hannukah.  For the last few nights we've had a guest staying with us.  It's one of Chloe's school friends who's Mom kicked her out of her house.  She's been sharing Hannukah with us so far.

Happy Hannukah!

"People are willing to take these extraordinary chances to become writers, musicians, or painters, and because of them, we have a culture. If this ever stops, our culture will die, because most of our culture, in fact, has been created by people that got paid nothing for it--people like Edgar Allan Poe, Vincent Van Gogh or Mozart."-Kurt Vonnegut
