Santa was happy to see us, although I thought he made some promises that he shouldn’t have. Whatever - let him be the bad guy. We always go see Santa early in the season so that we either have time to buy the item the children ask him for, or if that’s not possible, that the children will have forgotten what they asked for.
On Saturday night, we went to see Stomp with Jim and Sabrina. It was a great show with lots of action and stomping going on. We also went to a new restaurant downtown called Hermano’s and to Eva’s for gelati after (chocolate cheesecake flavour …mmmm), so it was a fun night out all around.
We had our first snow yesterday (except for that one in October). There’s still a very thin layer hanging around today, but I’m hoping it will melt. I could be happy with a green Christmas. But the snow was good for nudging my Christmas spirit. I normally don’t decorate until December first, but every year it seems people are decorating earlier and earlier. Since I’m always one to jump on the bandwagon, I got our tree today. It still needs to fully open, but I think it will be okay.
And now I must get some sleep for another busy week ahead. I’m hoping I can find some time to buy some gifts. Every night of the week is filled; my shopping might end up being just one expensive stop at the gift card display at 7-11.
