Dear Santa

Why are your lines so long?

My office usually has a Santa visit once a year, this year however, they did not. So on Monday I told the kids we could go see Santa after Cash's well baby appt. This is my first year to take the kids somewhere other than the office to see Santa, and boy did I have a lot to learn.

Notes to self:

  • Do not make the mistake of driving down Westheimer where there are at least 15 Cash for gold or jewelry sign promoters dressed as Santa standing in the medians for about 6 blocks. They wanted to stop and talk to every single one of is difficult to explain that, that's not the Santa that wants to hear all of your dreams and wishes.
  •  Do not mention Santa until we are 5 minutes away.Or you will hear, "Are we going to Santa's house?" every 2 minutes for 3 hours.
  • Do go to the bathroom before you get in line, as you will stand in line to get to him, and then stand in line a second time to obtain the photo you just took.
  • Be prepared to spend $25 or more.
  • Be prepared to be in the photo -Cash was not okay with sitting in a stranger's lap, so I sat in with him. Oh and didn't smile....whoops.
Yuliya locked up and forgot everything she wanted to tell Santa as soon as we sat down, would hardly even look at him.
The event ended up being a little more stressful than anticipated.

Cash eagerly waited to meet Santa, but had no intentions of looking at him or talking to him

Here it is folks....our picture with Santa this year.
