BakeFest and Christmas Town

I spent the morning baking, baking, and baking with the girls' "help."
After all that, we headed to Christmas Town at Busch Gardens with our friends (we love them!).
This is the first year we've been able to go, and it was lots of fun.  The weather was perfect, and the crowds weren't bad at all.  We were kind of nervous waiting in line for the Festhaus, especially when

we thought we were cut off until the next showing an hour later - we just want food!  Thankfully they let some more of us in - otherwise we probably would've had several meltdowns on the spot.  Bill found us a great spot in the corner with room for the kids to play (and Espy to lose her tooth), but we were still able to see the show.

Escape from Pompeii was probably my most favorite of the night.
Espy loved the penguin exhibit:
Momma, this place makes me want to cry - I'm just so happy!
If ever there was a child more like her mother...

2 days 'til Christmas!
