Whew, it was a two-party day and I am tuckered out. This morning the girls had their preschool Christmas program, with a guest visit from the jolly man himself. In case there was any doubt, they are TOTALLY over that whole scared-of-Santa thing. Ro squirmily waited for her name to be called and once she heard it took off like a shot and practically vaulted into Santa's lap, where she once again confirmed that she wants TubaNuts for Christmas:

Then this afternoon we went to my dad's birthday party and the girls had so much fun I had to drag them home. I had to chuckle when my folks' good friend Chuck (who just happens to have white hair and a beard) came in and Ro clutched my arm and dramatically whispered "Mama, how come Santa Claus no have on mittens?" Then when we were leaving I asked the girls to say goodbye to everyone and Ro waved at Chuck and said "Goodbye Santa Claus!"
