So a couple days ago after school I had the girls quick change into jeans and their Holiday Shirts and off we went to the mall I hate, to fight for a parking spot, stand in the never ending line and eventually, hopefully get a picture with Santa that would make it all worth while.
We got there, we found a parking spot only 100 yards from then entrance, we found Santa Central and "what to our wondering eyes should appear?" But no line in the front and all was clear!
And you know what else? Well, this negative nelly needs an attitude adjustment because as we entered Santa's Lodge
and my heart started pounding, and my palms started sweating at the thought of the tantrums and meltdowns I was sure to soon see...But instead
"their eyes -- how they twinkled! their dimples how merry!" as headed down the walkway to meet old St. Nick.
They did it! We survived, no tears, no meltdowns and we left with 4 copies of this overpriced memory that I will forever enjoy!
Oh, and then on the way out of the mall, that I hate, I noticed a Sketchers store, a whole store dedicated to sketchers! Does this mean I don't have to go to Dillards, Macys, Nordstroms, Khols and Zappos each time I am looking for a pair of Sketchers? I sure hope so. They also had this adorable pair of sweater, shoe, slipper type thingies in the window..so now I am off to Zappos to see if they come in my size (because obviously it is far easier to shoe shop for me online than it is to take a little 3 year old, shoe obsessed diva into a shoe store!)
