Santa Experience

I wasn't sure how seeing Santa was going to go this year. Emerson talks about him all the time and knows he's going to bring her toys, but didn't know if she would go sit and talk with him. If you know Emerson, she doesn't know a stranger and will talk to anyone. I figured Palmer would probably scream, b/c she's not real excited about strangers. We went to the Enchanted Forest here at the Pink Palace Museum for Ryan's work Christmas party.

Emerson kept asking where Santa was. We told her at the end of of the animals and toys. She rushed through because she wanted to see him. We got in line to wait our turn. Ryan and I turned out heads for a second to look at Palmer and the next thing we knew everyone was laughing. Emerson had run up and bypassed everyone in the line and jumped in Santa's lap. Everyone thought it was so cute, but I made her wait her turn in line. So she got to sit in his lap again and tell him what she wants for Christmas. Needless to say, Emerson has no fear of Santa Claus. Palmer did pretty good too. She didn't cry, so we got a pretty cute picture. Of course Palmer doesn't really know what's going on with the whole Santa thing, but loved seeing all the animals and toys at the Enchanted Forest. She loves chasing around her big sister and trying to keep up.

The Girls First Movie

On Thanksgiving we took the girls to see their first movie. We went to see Bolt. We debated whether or not to take Palmer with us. But she was actually the best one. My mom, sister, and neice also went with us. It was alot of fun. The girls really enjoyed it. The big girls got a kids snack pack, which they really loved. Palmer sat in my lap and ate popcorn the entire time. Here are a few pictures of our adventure.
