Pictures with Santa, Milk and Cookies, and Hibachi Grill

We had our Santa pictures taken at the mall last year, but this year we decided to go to the town square and try the free photos with their Santa. As we predicted, things did not go as smoothly as they did our first time with the big guy. Cady is just going through a “I’m very picky about people” phase right now.

{ Last Year }

{ This Year }

Out of the two photos they took, that was “the good one.”

She did cheer up once we took her upstairs for the free milk and cookies.

Then we went to Mommy’s favorite Hibachi/Mongolian Grill.

Where Cadence had a lively story to tell us about her Santa experience with hand gestures and everything.

P.S. In an unrelated subject, I just wanted to say that I got 8th place in the Trendy Treehouse Shutterlove Tuesday contest last week! I’m pretty excited about it.
