Christmas in the Jungle

It's been a (somewhat) relaxing and very enjoyable four day weekend. I retired the Fall decorations in Jack's room and replaced them with a whole lot of Christmas. I added more lights this year and his room looks really cool - especially at night with the lights off (except for the Christmas lights). Jack loves it!

The icicle lights are very cool, although you can't really tell in this picture. I need to get some pictures at night for you to really appreciate the effect

Eric and I got up early this morning and headed out on a road trip to the Boyce Thompson Arboretum - located about an hour East of where we live.  It was nice mom and Eric time.

Eric has the posing for pictures down pat.  He kept stopping and telling me to take his picture :)

The many different types of vegetation in one place was remarkable

Hiking along the trail

my absolute favorite.  He looks so sweet! (and he really can be on occasion)

Have a great week y'all!

Jack's room looks great. I can imagine it's magical at night with all the lights.

Glad you had a nice outing with Eric too. It's nice to have one-on-one time with each kid every now and then.
