12.6.15 – Fully Festive Weekend

6 Dec

We had a whirlwind of a weekend full of festive fun. First up was a trip to Daddy’s work to see Santa. As you can see from the year-by-year comparison, Laney has never been overly excited about Santa. Animal mascots – yes! Santa – NO! Since she can understand a little more this year, I thought maybe she’d be up for it. However, the first time we saw the Santa set-up at the mall, she immediately said, “I don’t want to sit on his lap!” When you ask her what she wants for Christmas she says, “lots of presents!” And she isn’t overly concerned about making sure Santa knows her wishes. That’s what Snowflake the elf is for, right?!

As I suspected, she did not want to sit on his lap. She did show Santa her sticker and gave him a high-five, but that was about it. And Daddy didn’t have the heart to throw her on his lap and traumatize her.

Later that evening, we headed to our annual Friends Christmas Party. The girls had a blast running around, dancing, eating treats, and snuggling up for a movie. So much fun to have so many little girls so close in age!

On Sunday, we headed to Monticello for lunch with Santa on the train. Laney wanted the train to go faster and was still timid around Santa, but she had a blast with her buddies.

All that fun made for one tired girl!
