We took a family outing with Adam's side of the family to see the Lights of the South the Monday before Christmas. I knew Alabama would love all the lights and I was really hoping that she would love Santa since Morgan and Ethan would be there with her.
Everytime we have gone to the mall this Christmas, we talk about Santa and she says "Ho, Ho" and then she will pat her lap and say "sit down". I say "You want to sit in Ho Ho's lap?" and she tells me emphatically, "Yes!".....that is until we get close! ha! Once we get close to where she can see him, I hold her up out of the stroller and she starts whining and saying "No, Mommy! No, Mommy!" She won't have anything to do with him! and then sometimes she will say in a sweet voice as we're walking away "Bye, Ho Ho, bye-bye!" It is the funniest thing! (Oh, and the funniest part is that later on, she can retell the story to us ..mall, up-down(elevator), Ho Ho, sit down, No Mommy!) hahaha! So I thought our best bet would be to see Santa with the lights. Needless to say, that didn't work out too well, either. This is the only pictures we got....Alabama sitting in MY lap and Santa behind us. Oh, well. Maybe next year!
The lights were beautiful of course and we had a really fun time. The even had Barney in lights! (Alabama's favorite thing on TV.) We also snuck in some hot choclate to drink and marshmallows to roast! ha!
