The 12 Days of Christmas

On Wednesday, I went to the Carolina Inn with my mom and two of my sisters.

We had to drive onto a certain college campus to get there.

There was a lot of light blue. It was a bit nauseating.

But then we got there, and there was a lot of pink — which was much nicer.

We went to see a display of the 12 days of Christmas, complete with live turtle doves.

But I’m getting ahead of myself. First came the partridge in a pear tree.

Actually, first came the ride there, which was entertaining enough on it’s own.

Mom drove, of course, and Julie and I decided since it’s Christmas, the season of good will and all, we would let our baby sister sit in the front seat.

Can’t you just sense her excitement?

Then she turned on John Mayer, and I remembered why we don’t let her sit up front more often.

Maybe it was payback for the time I played “Sweet Thing” on repeat for 20 minutes.

But I digress…we eventually made it to the partridge in the pear tree:

The two turtledoves (whose names are Bill and Coo):

The three French hens:

The four calling birds (twice):

The five gold rings:

The six geese a-laying:

The seven swans a-swimming:

The eight maids a-milking:
(actually, there’s only two, but the number eight is in there)

The nine ladies dancing (in groups of three):

The ten drummers drumming:
Yes, they got the song in the wrong order. It should be ten lords a-leaping.
They aren’t very strong in math at this particular university.

The eleven pipers piping (well, their pipes anyway):

The twelve lords a-leaping (switched with the drummers):
It was a multiple piece mural, so I could only get part of it in the photo.

Some parts were better than others, but all in all, it was quite an entertaining exhibit. And a very fun morning together.
