Last Outing of 2011  
Tessa, Luke, and I went out together yesterday (Friday, December 23rd) which would be our last outing together for 2011 sparkles

We went to two different museum exhibits and went to see the new Sherlock Holmes movie that came out recently lovely

The first museum that we went to was to the Fine Arts museum where they were having another Christmas tree exhibition (like the one I went to last year), but they were decorated completely differently from last year~! christmastree






Here's a close-up of the two trees and what they were decorated with~!



Another close-up of the Christmas trees~! The white one is decorated with drinking straws!!



The first one is decorated with embroideries, but the second one is Irish themed with leprechauns!







Here's a close-up of the first Christmas tree photo that I had before the LJ-cut

The other exhibit that we went to was the Toys 2 exhibit, which was an exhibit about toys. The theme of the exhibit was there was a cat who was hunting down a mouse. So the idea was you were supposed to follow the cat's paw prints on the ground and find the mouse in each of the exhibits cat

You know you're getting old when you have difficulty crouching down to go through all the tunnels, but we were determined to find the mouse in each of the exhibits!! There was a mouse in this pillow fort, but it was a white mouse, which made it much more difficult to find amongst all the other white toys that were in there~!

Luke even read us both a storybook called "The Snowdragon" since he was sitting in the rocking chair with Tessa and I sitting on the cushioned floor :3 We even played "Snake and Ladders" and drew on the board there (with the cat and numbered rocket)

We went window shopping around Downtown after we finished playing in the toy exhibit and its boutique where we ended up getting ice cream from Laura Secord despite it being winter and relatively cold outside already... snowman

The one that I got was the "Nougatine au pacanes au beurre" which loosely translated to "Buttered pecan nuggets". I had initially wanted the cookie dough ice cream, but Tessa says that I get that one all the time... NG

We went back to Tessa's house afterwards where she built a castle thingy and Luke gave me a trebuchet to give to my brothers on Christmas day to play with before going to watch the Sherlock Holmes movie... present

Before going to the movies, we ended up bringing a whole bunch of plushies with us... It all started when Luke brought one of them, which ended us having: two dogs, two turtles, one beaver, and one polar bear by the end of it... Tessa's dad laughed and said they would charge extra admission for bringing them. I'm only sad that I didn't get to bring my Oshawott plushie or my Kageyama bear with me... heartbreak

But I'll be down there at the end of May and drag you out every day for an entire week while I'm there~!

If you lived up here, I'd drag you out on a weekly basis :3

I burst out laughing at the leprechauns as well, but none of them are as epic as your Pokémon Christmas tree that you got to see!!
