25 Days of Christmas - Day 4

Tonight we took a trip to Jackson to do a little Christmas shopping. We didn't get there until almost 6, so we were very rushed and are now very tired. But some of you know that Ava was going to see Santa and I know you are dying to see how it went. It didn't go bad, but it didn't exactly go that great. Ava was very cautious about seeing Santa. She liked him from far away, but not so much up close. She didn't out and out cry, but she whimpered quite a bit. Let me tell you though, Santa knows his stuff. He told us exactly what to do to pose Ava so that she looks like she's on his lap, but in actuality, she's on his knee. It went better than I expected and while we didn't get a smile, we didn't get Ava hysterics either. Hey beggars can't be choosers! Anyway, here is Ava's picture with Santa. It is very late so I will post my little scrapbook page tomorrow and hopefully tomorrow night we will get our ornaments painted.

    She did much better than her Daddy. He screamed his head off! Wishing I could join in on the ornament decorating. It looks like you all are having a GREAT time.

    Love to All,

    Thanks to all of Santa's experience, you got a terrific picture, even if Ava wasn't smiling. It turned out cute, cute, cute...and you did a great job making her "I love Santa" shirt, Mommy!

    And for anyone out there who might be reading this.....they really pooped Ava out, with all that shopping last night. She took a FOUR HOUR nap today! She slept in her play pen, and Nana slept on the couch! :)

    She also did much better than her Mom did seeing Santa at that age. Her Mommy cried and I have the pictures to prove it!! Grammy
