I didn't take any pictures of the meal because no one likes to look at pictures of people eating and because we were busy trying to feed the fellas. But it was SO delicious and fun!
Then most of us bundled up and headed to Bronner's, which is also located in the fun town of Frankenmuth. Bronner's is the LARGEST Christmas store in the world - if it's a Christmas decoration, it can be found there. (It's sort of like the Walt Disney World of Christmas stores.)
And SANTA was there! Hubs and I decided, we're here, let's do it! Because is there ever a good time for it? (No, the answer is no.) Best part was that we were allowed to take our own photos! Sweet!
So we registered and were assigned to the "present" group - we were to go shopping and listen for our group to be called to see Santa.
(Skip the part where I tell you it took forever and the whole place is filled with a ZILLION MILLION BILLION glass ornaments.) We found an adorable (plastic) owl family ornament with two owl parents and 3 owlets and there was no charge for personalization, so we did that, too..because how could we go there and not buy ANYTHING? And who doesn't love owl ornaments? It will fit right in on our tree...stay tuned for that update!
Finally, FINALLY, FINALLY the "present" group was called and we raced, well, shuffled, pushed and fidgeted in line for awhile longer...here we are waiting in line:
|I LOVE Santa!|
|Aunt L's hair is a great plaything when you're out of snacks|
There are some things you just do because you're always glad you did it.
I guess it's part of being a good parent.
Thanks, mom, for always making Christmas awesome.
I had no idea how much work it was!
