This evening we left the kids with their uncle Jimmy and headed to Toys’r’us and the mall to see if we could wrap up there Christmas presents. We want to limit our trips to the mall in December. We had a successful time, picked up the last of the big things for the kids, all that’s left are some stocking stuffers. While walking through the mall I saw the empty Santa Experience area. It’s a real shame that we didn’t get tickets for the kids this year, I think they both really would have liked it. Though I must say, without the kids and the big man, it seems pretty barren. We’ll probably hit another mall to do the pictures with Santa, I’m wondering how Violet and Jacob will react when it’s their turn to sit on his lap.
