Kicking off the season

This past weekend was a great jump start to the holiday season. On Friday night we went to Celebration in the Oaks. It was a lot of fun. Noah really liked the "Cajun Night Before Christmas" story. The lights would jump and appear to tell the story. It was cute. It was very cold though!!! I was so nervous Noah wasn't warm enough, but he was fine.
Saturday morning we went to our annual family outing to a holiday tea. This year we went to the tea at the Monteleone Hotel. A lion named "Monte" was there...get it? It was really cute. They ofcourse had delicious scones to much on along with other yummy things such as chocolate covered strawberries. Many holiday characters were there such as Frosty, Rudolph, a fairy princess, and ofcourse Santa and Mrs.Clause. Noah would just stare at the characters, thankfully he wasn't afraid of them. It was a really good time, I can't believe next year he will be all over the place walking at the tea! Scary to think about!

That night we went to Christmas on the Bayou at Cabrini. As usual, it was fun. It's a tradition I've always attended since high school (or atleast tried to attend). Angela and Ashlee were there and I also got to see a few old teachers. It's always great going back to Cabrini. I especially liked hearing the Crescent Cradle doing the living nativity scene. It was so adorable!!! I loved hearing all the little kids sing. Noah then saw Santa and he was less than impressed. Like earlier in the day he wouldn't look at the camera but just stared at Santa or the other characters. Oh well. Maybe I can get a good shot of him with Santa in Disney World.
