It's Going to Be a White Christmas After All

This weekend we got about 5 inches of snow. Unless, we get a massive heat wave, it looks like it's going to be a White Christmas. Yeah! I was relieved that we didn't get the 6-12 inches they were originally calling for on the weekend before Christmas.

We were waiting and waiting for the snow to start on Saturday and my husband, looking out the window said, "forget about it, let's go see Santa". Who could resist? It was our 2-year old's first visit to the big guy. My husband did laps with her while I waited in line (it wasn't to bad since most people were home anticipating the snow). We were making bets on which one would wail first, the restless 2 year old or the teething 5 month old. It turned out neither of them did. We got an adorable picture of the two of them for a whopping $29.99 (at least we got the USB device to so now we can email the pics to family).

There had been a woman in front of us with her daughter and husband. She was really nice while we were speaking to her waiting for Santa but we sure got a kick out of her theatrics when her daughter was sitting on Santa's lap. She was jumping around and clicking her own photos while Santa's elves were trying to take pics in between giving her "your being naughty" looks. Then she grabbed a candy cane from the gigantic sack by Santa's seat to bribe her daughter and another one after her daughter got off of Santa's lap. Then, almost as an afterthought, she turned back to grab 4-5 more "for mommy and daddy". I hope she'd been good the rest of the year or Santa's crossing her off of his list.

Lol! Stealing from Santa is definitely a no-no! I just took pictures with Santa this past weekend with my children also, and I was very pleased we were able to get great pics with one snap. Great idea to bring a USB device- I would have loved to email them to family! Happy Holidays!

Actually, they sold us a package with the USB port included. It seems to be the newest thing which is nice so you can print however many pics you would like. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful holiday!
