Visiting Santa

We visited Santa this week. When I told Farrah that afternoon that we were going, she walked around the house and kept saying, "Mom! I love Santa now!!" (She has seen last years video where she clung to GG the whole time!! haha) Looking back, I'm pretty sure she was trying to talk herself INTO loving Santa; trying to pump herself up. She was great until we walked up to him. Then... we had to pry her down and beg her just to stand in front of Santa. Bella is so funny - she's holding onto Farrah, telling her that Santa is wonderful, all the while holding a perfect smile!


Bella wouldn't say what she wanted for Christmas. Claims he should already know from the note she wrote him. Farrah wouldn't say a word so Santa guessed that she loved Ariel (which she does) so now that is what she wants. 

I can't say enough great things about Santa (Rick!) at Bass Pro. Everyone loves him. He was busy even on a Tuesday night; luckily my mom went up and got a reservation at 5:30 for 7:30 on short notice. He remembered us all and our names. Then proceeded to pay for our pictures. He's amazing. He is so sweet and gentle and patient with the kids. All the "elves" there also cannot say enough good things about him. It was a great way to kick off Hallie's birthday week. 


At school Thursday, Santa came to visit the kids. Farrah was crying to me (a fake cry I might add) that she didn't want to. As soon as she got up there, she was all smiles?!?! So maybe she's good now! Bella still wouldn't say what she wanted and Farrah just smiled and nodded her head. 


(Oh, and it was also PJ day at school!) Thank you for the pictures, Joy!!!
