Trail of Lights

This weekend we went to Austin to the Trail of Lights at Zilker Park. We met Mark's sister and her friend there. Kendall enjoyed the lights, but was overwhelmed by the crowd.

Mark, Kendall and I bundled up!!

Kendall in Candy Land.

Kendall with the Grinch.

Kendall on a Yule Log. What is a Yule Log, anyway? What are Yule Tide greetings??

Thank goodness for wikipedia....

Yule is a winter festival associated with the winter solstice celebrated in northern Europe since ancient times. Its Christianized form is called "Christmas", which is essentially the symbology and traditions of Yule with the Christian story of the birth of Jesus of Nazareth superimposed upon it. Yule traditions include decorating a pine tree, burning a Yule log, the hanging of mistletoe and holly, giving gifts, and general celebration and merriment.

Now we'll all sleep better tonight! Yule Tide greeting to you and your family! :)
