visit with Santa
Addie was really excited to see Santa Claus today, it's all she was talking about. In her little head she must have thought we were going to see a cartoon Santa the size of the ornaments on the tree or in her story books. She was not keen on a real life-size Santa, who was a real person. She wouldn't sit on his lap but she did accept a piece of candy from him. She said "thank you" and "Merry Christmas". Bella on the other hand sat right on Santa's cozy lap and posed for a few pictures. We did a lap around the kids floor and then the wonderfully decorated home floor, drooling over all the ridiculously over-priced decorations. We were home in time to have left-over turkey dinner while Bella had her first taste of sweet potatoes and didn't bat an eye, as if she'd tasted them before. Justin pointed out she has been tasting sweet potato for the past few days in her milk so there you go, maybe she was ready for the real deal.
