This weekend we ate what was left of the turkey and started getting ready for the wonderful(and stressful) holiday known as Christmas. Like Thanksgiving, my wife and I are trying to make it the best we can for K-Dub. We are doing everything from the gifts to the visit to see Santa.
Don’t get me wrong. I am still very aware of the fact that this is her first Christmas and she will not remember it but BrittWhitFun and I will. Since we are trying so hard to make this the best Christmas for her, we decided to take her to meet Santa for the first time.
We heard that the local Bass Pro Shop was giving away free Santa pictures. At first I was very reluctant to have my daughter’s picture taken at Bass Pro Shop cause its the last place I expected for Santa to be, but I know a good deal when I see one. I always love things that are free! Who doesn’t?
After waiting in line for almost an hour, we reached Santa. I was worried that K-Dub was going to freak out over letting an old stranger hold her. She is very clingy to BrittWhitFun and I so I did not know how she was going to react. Lucky for us my sister-in-law, brother-in-law and nephew came with us. Once K-Dub and my nephew HJ sat on Santa’s lap they were fine. In fact, they looked like pros.
Also this weekend, we got our tree up and decorated. No, we did not steal our Christmas tree this year. I just had to make that perfectly clear. I did not want to feel guilty this holiday season. Now the only thing left to do is the outside lights. I need to do those soon cause my weekends in December are full of parties and other Christmas activities. Nothing says Merry Christmas like a full calendar.
