First Christmas Trip

21 Dec

Saturday was the first day that it hit me how soon Christmas was.  Mr. Soup and I went to a holiday tradition of our friend Bill’s.  He takes all his friends out to dinner instead of getting individual presents.  We missed last year because I was 8.5 months pregnant, we had 3 inches of snow and ice on top and just couldn’t make it.  This year, we were very happy to be able to go.

A night without baby and getting to enjoy adult conversation and really good food?  Priceless.

I was so busy stuffing my face with some AMAZING sushi, that I didn’t get any pictures.  I know, I’m a loser.  But I did get a photo of the beautiful fresh fruit plate for dessert:

While hubby and I were enjoying this amazing meal, Baby Soup got to go out too!  She went with Grammy and Grammy’s boyfriend to the Oregon Zoo to see the Zoo Lights!

It was the perfect evening, not too cold and not raining.  Grammy had never gone and obviously neither had my daughter.  Everyone had a blast!

So, has it hit you yet that Christmas is almost here?  Do you have your Christmas or Hanukkah shopping/wrapping done?  Do you have a tradition that just SEALS the holidays into your mind?
