Santa Saturday

So far, we've had a very nice Saturday. I ran this morning -- just a short 3 miler (but tonight the temp is supposed to drop down into the 50s, so I'm gonna do my week's long run tomorrow); then, we went out to lunch, and Norah fell asleep in the car on the way there and then proceeded to sleep through our entire lunch, which made it very nice for Jerry and I. Then, we ran a few errands, and finally, went to the mall to see Santa!

The line wasn't too bad and we waited for less than 30 minutes, which was fine since Norah feel asleep while Jerry held her and she slept through the wait and woke up right when it was her turn to sit on Santa's lap. We couldn't coax a smile out of her for the pic, but at least she didn't cry (although, if she had, I honestly would have just found it funny).

While waiting in line, we saw two kids break down in tears on Santa's lap and we saw one excited little boy who had cut out pictures of the toys he wanted so he could show Santa visuals of what he wanted for Christmas, which I thought was so dang cute.

This afternoon, we plan to continue the festivies by baking some sugar cookies, and Jerry made an official declaration that his cookies are gonna kick my cookies' ass, so I guess I better pull out the apron and get bakin, because I don't bake loser cookies!

I love the fact that Norah gets to wear capris while sitting on Santas lap. Oh, the life ;)

Maybe you could make a gingerbread ninja who could do your ass-kicking for you?

Next year will likely be the screaming baby picture LOL. We have one of those with each of our boys.

She's adorable as usual.

I'd be happy to be another volunteer cookie judge, if you need one. :) Can't believe Christmas is in less than a week! Eek!

Go, Jess cookies!

And a tip from me: if you're doing sugar cookies, roll the dough out thicker for chewier cookies.
