Our First Visit with Santa
Even though it breaks all of Josh's "rules" (NO...i repeat....NOOOO Christmas anything before Thanksgiving!) I talked him into going to Monroe's Christmas on the Square. The event was a total bust....very much not worth our time and effort to load up the kids, pack bags, maneuver strollers....EXCEPT for the free picture with Santa.....which made it totally worth it, even to the point we said we would go again. No line, not a lot of people (which means less germs to make me worry about! I'm not a germ-a-phobe by any means, but don't want my babies to be unnecessarily sick either!) and FREE! Although the Santa we saw appeared to have dieted...or potentially had gastric bypass between last Christmas and now...the babies didn't seem scared at all! Avery even reached over to pet the furry cuffs on his coat! VERY cute, and a picture (i would like to cut myself out of) that we'll love to look back on in years to come!
