My mom is in town for a visit (staying at my sister's) and we all went to the Harbor Lights festival tonight. It was really fun despite the fact that we were freezing. The Lone Star Baby was uncharacteristially disinterested in the children's area and bouncy toys - at first she just wanted to home because she was cold, I think. I got her a light stick and some cotton candy and she started to get happy, though. We listened to a local musician, Jennifer Pena, until Santa appeared inn his special motorcade. Then there was a laser light show before the lighting of the big Christmas tree. We watched the illuminated boat parade from the sea wall. It was nice ... but cold.
