Sunday I had to miss church because I was sick.
Monday Job had a meeting near a mall that we never go to anymore so we all tagged along. We dropped him off and I took the kids to the Disney store, to ride the carosuel, have lunch in the food court at CFA, & got to pick out a cookie.
Reid took a pic of me & Sam.
Reid saw Santa and asked to take a pic with him. It made me laugh because he had been telling me he was NOT gonna sit on Santa's lap. He told Santa the same thing he tells everyone. I'd like Toy Story stuff for Christmas and animals. Then said, "Santa what you been doing?" Hahaha
(I've been asked a lot lately about do we "do" Santa. A very quick & easy response would be that we don't make a big issue out of Santa. We treat him like other mythical, fun characters that are on tv or sometimes out in public wearing costumes. Clifford, the Chickfila cow, Cinderella. He thinks it's fun and knows it's pretend. We have Santa books & watch movies that have Santa in them. We do not try to convince him that he is real just like we don't tell him Mickey is real. But by all means if Mickey walks by at the mall or we go to Disney World or Santa in this case let the picture snapping with characters begin.)
We ate dinner then took the kids to a Christmas parade. The kids thought it was fantastic!
Tuesday we were at home. I got this toy from the attic for Sam. He's still a little wobbly but enjoys sitting up.
He enjoys napping in my bed too. :)
Wednesday we went to Bible study. The kids had a pizza party with a movie in their class and the ladies had brunch together. The kids napped when we got home. I cooked supper then ran out solo to Aldi for groceries.
Thursday we invited Ava & Addison over to play while my sister had a few things to do. Then that afternoon my mom, sister, & I baked Christmas goodies. We had a great time & laughed all evening.
Friday I took the kids to open gym then there was a little Christmas party after for all the kids. We did a craft & had snacks.
The kids & I ran in Goodwill & Dollar Tree for boxes to pack up all our treats we baked.
Saturday we all ran a zillion errands & went to a family Christmas party.
