It was a great day today. I went to school to watch Spencer in a class play, I felt productive at work, took Neve to a successful appointment, bought new mugs to go with my new white dishes, took the kids to see Santa and to Boston Pizza for supper. Santa was especially awesome. He spent lots of time with the kids, and even though Chloe said this might be her last visit to Santa (I told her she has to go until she's 18), they all had a lot of fun.
I always like to visit Santa early so we can coordinate our gifts with him. Spencer asked Santa for a lisp, a British accent, a snake, and Lego. Chloe asked for an elephant, Justin Bieber, and duct tape. Santa didn't quite know what to do with that information. Neve was too shy to talk to him at first, but she eventually told him what she wanted (Barbies).
The elves didn't ban my camera like they did last year, so that was nice. (I bought their picture too, which was actually better than most years).
The rest of the evening was good too - Chloe has taken a 24-hour vow of silence (a We Day thing), so it was nice and quiet. I got our front porch Christmas tree up and lit and hope to get the rest of the decorations out in the next few days. Yay, Christmas!
