Maddie was one lucky girl today because we got to go and see Santa at school, she got to see her buddies there too, and we got to meet Dada for lunch! Last year I don’t think Maddie ever really saw Santa, she had her dancing little “ta-ta” that we carried around everywhere but that was it. This year, she is obsessed. We have Santa slippers, a Santa cup, two Santa's at the house, it goes on and on. So, needless to say we were pretty excited to have Santa come to school and see him. However, when it came down to it, she did not want to be near him, or sit on his lap. So we got to talk to him to see if he could sweet talk her into sitting with him.
Please ignore the fact that I look like “frosty the noman”
. . . and we try to move a little closer . . .
Then I told Santa I was going to stick her on his lap and take a picture anyways, like all good parents. Neither Maddie nor Santa were a fan . . .
But then we had cupcakes and Maddie could run around with her buddies so all was right again. Oh, and she also would circle around in front of Santa and say hi, or bye every five minutes or so.
Sitting like a lady.
Waving to Santa
Playing with our jingle bell from Santa.
Off and running.
Worn out after all that Santa activity!
Phew. . . and we have another party tonight to go too!
