Good Times

On the eve of Christmas Eve, we went over to Dyker Heights to view the Christmas lights. That neighborhood is known for it’s extravagant holiday displays. This is another thing I don’t usually go see but we thought it would be something Sienna would enjoy. And she did! We were teaching her her right and left so on the way over, she was calling out the houses with the Christmas lights saying “Christmas lights on the right!” or “Christmas lights on the left!” It was fun. Anyway, it was a really chilly night and initially we weren’t going to get out of the car but then we found a real good block chock full of lights! (84th and 12th Ave for future reference.) Since we were there relatively early (5ish), we were able to find a spot and walk up the block of lights. Sienna was SO excited! She was a blur running from house to house to see the lights! What a joy to see her so excited!
Sienna has also been adapting my goofy poses (another example here)

Happy New Year Everyone!
