Today went to a place called St. Nicks. It's a giant store full of nothing but ornaments, lights, stockings, etc...
In the back of the store is a cottage. You go into the cottage and meet Mrs. Claus. While you are waiting to see Santa, the kids get to hang out with Mrs. Claus who is the NICEST woman in the world and TOTALLY knows how to engage kids. She knew all the good tricks and within minutes she had Cady in her arms and Cady was babbling away to her. She also got to color with Mrs. Claus at a little table and play her piano. There was a Christmas movie on and lots of Christmas books. They bake fresh chocolate chip cookies too. So by the time it was time to see Santa, Mrs. Claus carried her in to Santa's room and she sat down with Cady on the couch next to Santa and NO PROBLEM! Woohoo! All the other Santas have gotten from Cady is a high five b/c she has been too freaked out.
Oh, right before we went in, Rob says he has to go the bathroom and ducked into the bathroom. Cady announced to the entire room in her loud Cady voice while Mrs. Claus was holding her that "Daddy's in the Poddy" Fun!
Here's the picture. She had a bad hair thing going on so there were a couple of pictures that were better as far as she was looking straight at the camera and smiling but she had a big chunk of hair popping out of the side of her head (you can kind of see it in this one) so we didn't choose those.
