Santa visits

The mall Santa is a beautiful one this year, but the company that mans the thingee won't let you take pictures with your own camera any more and a Polaroid is about $9.95! Can you believe it? But, we have a way around it. The local Wells Fargo brings in the most incredible Santa Claus for the kiddos. The best part, they let you take your own pictures AND they'll give you a Polaroid shot, too, for free. Additionally, they have candy canes, coloring books, popcorn, candy and punch for everyone. It is great and I really appreciate. So, we take the kids to Wells Fargo each year to get their pictures made. Little Bit is still not sure what she thinks of this guy. But, she looked fabulous in her little dress. So cute.






I took the two little ones to Six Flags Friday night, too. I'll post those pictures on Sunday most likely. Army of Dad is working -again - today for his company's inventory. Since he manages the warehouse, he gets to be in charge. Even worse, his boss' daughter graduated from college today, so he is in charge of everyone. We have been strangers passing in the night lately. His kids are so excited when they get to see him because he leaves before they awake and returns after they're in bed. I'm going to a Christmas party with a friend tonight. She works with a bunch of women and they decided to make it a girls-only event, so she invited me instead of her hubby. So, I have a date. *wink*

    Awww they look so cute. :-) I can't wait to take my niece and nephew to see Santa.

    9.95 for a polaroid is ridiculous. A polaroid costs about 70 cents a print that is an outrageous mark up.

    I kinda miss going to see Santa every year... it wasn't really that long ago... *sigh*

    9.95 is ridiculous...especially for a crappy Polaroid. Since I do photography for a living, I think it is crazy to spend for something like that, when I can do it for free! Anyway...that's my rant...You can see more of these pics over at my website if you like:-) Feel free to stop by www.uzzman.com

    God, I can't believe all my little ones are getting so big. I just shake my head when I see Pickles. I remember changing his diaper, for god's sake.

    My darling girl is going to be such a beauty. *smiles proudly*

    I can't wait to give them their gifts. This is going to be SO much fun.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you. I think they have good genes and that is why they are so cute. Of course, Stinkerbelle gets her good looks from her mother. *wink*

    I'm anxious for Christmas, too. It is so much fun to give the children their presents. I don't even need one because I love to watch them so much. Wait, there is ONE gift that I want - my LOTR extended DVD trilogy. ;)

    Never trust a man who wants strange kids to sit in his lap on purpose.

    Bane, I think you're probably right.
