They were into everything in no time at all.
Admiring my mom's horse collection.
Checking out the Christmas Tree.
And investigating the Christmas candy.
Finally we were off to look at Christmas lights! Andy might have been a little over anxious. She kept pointing out the window and saying "Look, Christmas lights!!!" and was really dissapointed when I didn't see them. Finally, we stopped at an intersection, and she said "Over there, Wendy! There's one! Christmas light!!!"
"But they're green and red, and they blink back and forth" she wisely explained, and I couldn't argue.
One display even had automated marionettes dancing which REALLY seemed to fascinate the girls.
The pixies assured me that they weren't cold, even though they weren't wearing jackets or shoes. But when I saw them snuggling up to a lightbulb in a display for warmth, I thought maybe it was time to call it a night.
We stopped by an all night doughnut place on the way back to my parents' house, and got the pixies some warm donuts and hot cocoa. They snuggled up in the warmest thing laying on the counter (a Santa hat from my Mom's Christmas stuff) and warmed up with cocoa and donuts.
They are pretty cute, and they were a lot of fun to hang out with. So I'm sure I'll hang out with Saoirse and Andy again, and I'm fairly confident I'm never going to be able to look at a traffic light again without thinking "There's one of Andy's Christmas lights!"
