It's begining to look a lot like Christmas...

Today was such a wonderful day. I'm starting to feel more like my old self (I think that's a good thing, LOL) and I took the girls to run some fun errands today.



First, we stopped to tell Santa what we wanted for Christmas. I (with the help of a very picky DD1) picked out some adorable Christmas dresses. So I made sure to get some shots for our X-mas cards. DD2 would only get close enough to Santa to give him a high five. I guess this is better than the screaming that took place last year. Here's some pictures from today, and a LO from LAST year's Santa visit.

(above is the one I think I like for the X-mas Card)


DD1 is very serious about getting that Biggest Little Pet Shop!




Silly girls :-)

Here is last year's photos:

Was I a mean mom for making her scream there while I took the pic??? Poor Santa!
Here's the credits for the LO:
Templates: Hooped Quick Click from Jamie Rousselle on DSP
Kits: SP_SeasonalSampler_winter
Fonts: Font in a Red Suit & CK Curly

After pictures, we stopped for some lunch, then off to the Disney Store & Old Navy to get some gifts – BTW, this is much harder to do with the kids now that they are older. They paid a lot more attention than I thought they would! On the way out, we stopped for a ride on the Merry-go-round. They were so, so, so well behaved, and we had a million people commenting on how beautiful they looked in their dresses.

When we came home DD2 went down for a nap – but has recently decided that she's not napping anymore – can I tell you how much I am loving this???? She really still needs that nap, so I'm trying hard to get her to take it, but she keeps climbing out of her bed. So, around 5:30 she is just oh, so charming with her tantrums. Anyhow, she refused the nap, so she "helped" us to make treats to DD2's holiday party for school tomorrow. She ate way more than she made. We had a lot of fun doing it. I'll try to post more picks & a recipe for the treats another day.

Oh yeah, and that's what my daughter wanted too...the littlest pet shop! lol It's sitting under our tree now and I found the playset with 5 bonus pets (yay!)

The girls look adorable, and we only go visit the Santa at church every year, and each year my youngest daughter screams bloody murder when I put her on his lap. He is a younger Santa, and last year I said hold on tight I'm still getting the picture...lol. So you are not a bad mom, or we both are...lol. Patty
