The kids shared hot chocolate while watching the Christmas trees with lights that "danced" to the music.
We visited the Gorilla house and they were all sleeping. In the Lion House, the big cats were prowling around. They had crafts set up there for the kids.
The animal shapes were fun to come across. The lions were our favorite.
I enjoyed the Santas Around The World Exhibit. They had a displays that showed the Santa traditions from different countries. This one was Perre Noel from France.

If you could have 100 lbs of anything, what would you choose? "A 100 pound Lolly. You would have to climb up the handle to lick it!"
What is your favorite place to be alone? "At home because that's a safe place."
What food could you NEVER give up? "Soup."
Who would you choose to star in a movie about your life? "My friend Emma."
What kind of vacation would you choose: the mountains or the beach? "The beach so I could collect shells."
For the last course we were served a selection of sweets. They brought Maddie a special heart shaped peppermint cake with a candle on top. You should have seen her face light up at the sight of that!
Making a wish! <
>Blowing out the candle!
It was a school day, so we let her open one present before she walked over. She was happy to unwrap the astronaut helmet she has been wanting. It goes well with her other astronaut gear from Halloween!
Next we made Alien Glop! This was Maddie's favorite thing. The glop is solid if you squeeze it or poke it, but oozes out if your hands if you release pressure.
