AnnaClaire Visits Santa!










As I said earlier, we braved the crowds and went to the mall today! We brought Little Miss to see Santa soon after we got there, because the line wasn't too long. She was such a ham waiting in line and made friends with everyone in line. When we got to the front and it was her turn to sit on Santa's lap, she went right on and smiled so big. I was so proud of her! I have to admit I was a little worried she was going to be in hysterics. When we were in line I told her to tell Santa that for Christmas she wants a kitchen. So now everytime you ask her what she wants for Christmas, she happily says, "ki chen!" That's exactly what she told Santa, too. We had a fun day at the mall. AC and I ran in the apple store to look at ipods because I'm asking for a new one for Christmas. It was a zoo. It is always extremely crowded, but I had never seen it nearly that packed. Mom and Grandma were doing some other Christmas shopping, and it was pointless staying in the apple store because it was so crowded. So we ran across the way to Pottery Barn Kids and right away AnnaClaire saw a little vanity. She ran over saying, "Anna makeup!" She sat on the little chair for the longest time putting on "makeup". It was so cute... all the pieces were fabric. Everyone in the store was just watching her. She had the biggest smile on her face as she put on her "makeup". Sadly, my camera was with the stroller so I didn't get a picture... next time! After about 30 minutes of "Anna makeup" we found mom left. On the way home, AnnaClaire got some m&ms to keep her awake, and every time, she would tell us what color it was. It was so sweet! She is a smartie pants! We got home just in time for the Texas game... not a good game at all. Texas lost 38-30 which was unfortunate especially since they are ranked 13 and A&M wasn't even ranked! But oh well... it was fun to watch and AnnaClaire loved cheering on her horns!

Oh~ added music to the blog so turn up your speakers! This one is for all the many families that are spending yet another Christmas without their precious sweeties. I know it is hard, especially during the Christmas season, but once you have your little princess/prince, the season will be even more magical then you could've ever imagined! Thinking of you all during the long wait and know that one day you will get to spend your Christmas by your little one's side and it will be the most wonderful Christmas ever!

Anna Claire is so precious! How exciting that she will sit with Santa. AC says no HoHo for her. I don't think I will get a Santa photo this year again.
