... to town. And we're not going to be here. Hopefully he gets the memo to deposit our toys when he's down in New Mexico. I think he knows; he's a pretty smart fellow.
Here are a few pictures of our visit to "Santa's Pole." :) James is convinced that the North Pole is in the mall. We've tried explaining that he is simply visiting, but it's useless. I suppose it doesn't matter in the end.
James was so excited to see Santa. When we saw the room he was in, Santa waved at us- and James took off running! :) It was very cute. James hopped right up onto Santa's lap and immediately said, "I want a submarine!" lol. I think we may have prepped him too much. He chatted with Santa for a while. Then we sat Jolie up there with him. She was mostly trying to crane her neck around to get a look at him - beyond that bushy beard. She wasn't really happy but didn't cry- though she started to get there toward the end. Overall, I think the visit was a success.
When we left, James was kind of upset and wanted to know where his toy was. lol. Again, we had to explain. My goodness, December is long for a little kid! :)
Tonight we're leaving. Derek will stay. We will miss him oh-so-much. Those of you in town, take care of our "daddy." And Derek- please know that all I want for Christmas is YOU! See you soon. xo
