A Visit to Santa

We took Claire to see Santa yesterday. It wasn't a failure, but could have gone better. She was all smiles in line before seeing the big man.


But then, she saw him and realized she was expected to go talk to him. We let the people behind us in line go first so she could watch a little guy sit happily on Santa's lap. Even then, she was willing to wave at Santa, and whisper a Ho! Ho! Ho!, but would not sit on his lap (without me).


Last night when I was putting her to bed. "Mommy? Sit in Santa's lap tomorrow? Maybe tomorrow." Yeah, right.

Snowy Day




After tumbling class today, Claire insisted on making a stop on the patio to play in the snow. She was having a great time piling up the snow and throwing it at me. Last year, she wasn't sure what to make of the snow - this year, she's fascinated - I sense a snowman in our future. And yes, I'm aware that hat is entirely too small for her - I have a bigger hat, but it's a little big - just like Goldilocks, I'm struggling to find one that's just right.
