Santa Fail

Merry Christmas y’all!

So it didn’t rain as expected but continued being overcast and gloomy. Perfect for stay inside all day. But that plan didn’t last.

In our busy and crazy lives, I totally forgot to take our traditional photo with Santa. Especially one with mommy’s belly.

Well, I guess I didn’t take into account that all Santa’s leave to the North Pole on the 24th. We missed the cut off line last night at the mall. But today a neighbor found a Santa at the Queen Mary. So in the afternoon we got ready to go.

As wife was changing, I call to confirm. Glad I did. Apparently Santa there too had left to the North Pole yesterday. Gad I called as their advertising didn’t specify that fact. Very disappointed.

Finally resigned myself to having missed that opportunity for poor planning. I guess it just wasn’t meant to be. Lesson learned here in many ways. So as hard as it was I let it go.

Had a great quiet time with my girls and of course drove them insane. They just don’t get that such is my commandment.

V was over the moon with Santa’s goods. This was the first year in her life that we truly loved seeing Xmas through her eyes.

Oh yeah, did I mention how happy I am that the elf is gone? Yes!!!
