Zoo Outing

Auntie Joyce, Mommy and I went to the zoo today. It was snowing and cold but we had fun. We saw a dolphin show. I even watched the dolphins perform a few tricks, but mostly I climbed up and down the bleachers and didn't pay attention.

We went to see the seals. It was hard for Mommy to take a picture of Auntie Joyce and me because I kept on squirming and wanting to run away!
We found a rock and pretended to be seals resting on top of the rocks.

Merry Christmas!

Daddy helped Santa Claus put up this Christmas tree. I really like it. The tree is decorated with beautiful ornaments and there are colorful snowflakes all around it.

Grandma and Grandpa Meyers and Uncle Mark and Aunt Jennifer and their kids joined Auntie Joyce, Mommy, Daddy, Alex and me to celebrate Christmas. We had a wonderful dinner that Daddy cooked.

Then it was time for the part of Christmas I like best: opening presents!

Here's a video of me opening a present:

It was a wonderful tornado of gift-opening chaos. I didn't know which present to open up next!

I really like playing in the Thomas the Tank playhut that Grandma Lai gave me.

Aunt Jennifer did my hair up in a ponytail on top of my head. Mommy says I look cute.

I like jumping on Auntie Joyce.

Clean Potatoes

I helped Daddy wash his potato this morning for about 15 minutes. He said it was the cleanest potato ever.

Hinsdale Community Preschool Visit

Today Mommy and Daddy took me to visit the Hinsdale Community Preschool. I got to play in the room with the other two and a half year olds for a while. I tried out the little kids' potty but fell into the toilet with my pants on. I didn't want to leave. I want to go to school with the other kids!
