TubaDad has been freezing his cahones off on an icy Canadian business trip, so the girls and I have been finding ways to keep busy. Tonight we took a carload of stuff to charity and then stopped at one of our favorite Italian restaurants for a big spaghetti dinner. Afterwards Ro and Ree wanted to go see Santa, and they had been such angels that I couldn't refuse. So off we went (after they had a brief argument with me and the waitress about which nearby mall had a candy store). By the way, if you ask the girls where Santa lives, they scream "At the mall!" which cracks me up every time. Anyhow, here's Santa pic #2 of the year, and it probably won't be the last. I think this one is even cuter than the last one, especially since it makes me grin that Ro's hair is matted with some type of food and scraped back in a ponytail, Ree is wearing her favorite glittery ruby slippers, Ro's shirt is splattered with spaghetti sauce from the dinner that she thoroughly enjoyed, and Ree is waving her hands around animatedly talking about candy. Happy Santa hunting y'all. May all your Santas be located next to candy stores.
