First, Santa at Bass Pro Shops in years passed:
We decided to go meet Santa while my mom was here because that sounded like a fun thing to share with her. First we stopped at the mall to get Allan some clothes since he’s going to Colorado the next day to work for a week at his new company.
We eat at the food court in the mall. My mom and I get Sbarro’s and for some reason it’s repulsive. I end up getting myself a corn dog instead! It’s cool being able to eat a hotdog after 9 months of none!
Ember fell asleep on the way to Bass Pro Shops and we didn’t bother waking her up. She’s cranky on a normal day for a good half hour after waking up from a nap and we knew being woken up to meet Santa (which she expressed fear over anyway) didn’t seem logical! lol
We decided Allan and I would join the kids in the picture so that he could hold Ember in it and I could have Everett in it. But then Everett was asleep in the ergo so I didn’t bother taking him out or anything. He wasn’t even showing in the picture, but he was there. haha
Are my kids the only weirdos who pretend mannequins are family members? Depending on the look of the mannequin Brooklyn and Sierra will say to them, “Hello, mom!” Or, “Here’s my sister!” or other stuff like that. Weirdos.
Brooklyn didn’t want to go meet Santa on her own. I think she felt she was too big 🙁
Sierra wanted Payson to go first since she was feeling shy, too! Payson was enamored by Santa and super cute over there talking to him.
