It's a zoo out there!

This summer I went a little zoo crazy, I went to 4 zoo's across the country in about an 8 week time span.

John Ball Zoo in Grand Rapids
Toledo Zoo
Cleveland Zoo
Pt. Defiance Zoo & Aquarium in Tacoma, WA

I'm still developing pictures from this summer, I had 15 rolls! but I did get some back. As I promised many blog entries ago I would share pictures. Here are some of my favorites that I have developed so far.

Hippoquarium at the Toledo Zoo:

And the whole reason I wanted to go to the Cleveland Zoo:

A few Christmas pictures

As most of ya'll know I'm not digital yet so there's always a few days or weeks delay in me showing pictures.

I don't have all of my Christmas pictures back yet but here are some of my Christmas tree and decorations in my apartment. This is the first time in two years I actually decorated for Christmas and it felt great!

My Christmas tree (notice it's a little sparse on the left there, that seems to be the main point of entry for Abbie and Willow to climb in!)

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care

My ABC Distributing Snowmen, I thought they were cute and they've held up all these years!

The presents under my tree, before some of them got mailed out that is! Notice the stuffed puppy over to the left there? Jim got me that at a Griffins game the week before Christmas, he got up to get something to drink and came back with the stuffed puppy!

Warning: Cute Alert!

Warning: Very cute kitty pictures to follow. Don't look if you are easily enabled into going out to get your own very cute kitty!

Willow is 12 weeks old now!

Merry Christmas!

Let's try this again ... Willow decided to jump on the keyboard here and hit just the right button and deleted everything I had typed. The joys of kittenhood :)

I hope each of you had a wonderful Christmas no matter how you celebrated. I had a wonderful Christmas and am thankful for such great family and friends.

I'll post more later about my Christmas.
