A Quick Visit to Santa's Village

The TrygKerz family was a bit late in a lot of their Holiday festivities this year. We still have a present or two to purchase (crossing our fingers there is still things left at the store) and we just tonight went to see Santa.

This is the second year we've trekked out to Santa's Village at Rheault Farm in Fargo. The Fargo Park District does a fantastic job making it feel like the north pole (and Santa is the best Santa I've ever seen.) Last year, we went out there with my good friend Penny. Check out some photos from 2009 here.

This year (because of our lateness) we weren't able to make it until this evening. Edie has been referencing Santa for a couple weeks now. In fact, every thing with a red hat must be "santa, santa, santa!" She even knows that Santa says "ho, ho, ho!." However, tonight she wasn't too sure about that Santa guy. However, trains are still cool.

Sixteen Months Old

Recently, Edie has bee a little eating machine. We all know what that means, right? Yep. Growth spurt. And man, oh, man has she grown! Within days she had outgrown a good chunk of her clothes and I'm fairly certain this has been her quickest growth spurt to date! I guess it's time for another shopping trip.

Picking up new words every day, Edie has gone through a vocabulary growth spurt as well. It's becoming easier to communicate with her and she makes sure to tell us exactly what she wants (eat! go! bubbles? bath!). She is becoming increasingly curious and asks "what's this" or simply "this?" when she wants to know what something is.

Lately, she has been very, very, very passionate about a few things in her life... her tooth brush, her entourage (blankies, puppy) and her boots. It's been so fun to see her pick out and become attached to her favorite things.
