Holiday in The Park

Somehow I managed to not take a single picture of Thanksgiving, or our trip to the tree farm to cut down our Christmas tree. I'm still kicking myself for that.

We went to a local event called Holiday in The Park last weekend.

Emmett got to check out some reindeer

He also sat in Santa's sleigh
I was going to take a picture of him with the snowman, but Emmett would have nothing to do with that.
Santa arrived later, in a horse drawn sleigh.
It was super cold and getting late, so we decided to leave shortly after Santa arrived. The line for Santa pictures was crazy, and they said it was too windy to light off the wishes to Santa lanterns. They did let everyone take the lanterns home, so we lit it last night when it wasn't quite as windy. We were supposed to write a wish to Santa on it before we sent it off. Emmett's wish was to meet Mickey Mouse, since he is currently obsessed with him. :)
Emmett bundled up in his jammies and winter gear to send his wish lantern off.

 There it goes!

Getting smaller...
 and smaller...

Sorry for the crap quality of pictures in this post, but it was pitch black out both evenings and it was hard to get any decent shots.

First Haircut

Emmett got his first haircut a couple days before Thanksgiving. He completely freaked out and acted like he was being tortured. Luckily she was able to finish cutting it though.

Getting ready

The finished cut! It was styled in to a little faux hawk, but by the time I took these pictures it was already messed up.

After bath time with the gel washed out. He looks so much older with short hair!
