Santa Baby

Two weeks ago, the kids got to meet Santa. My firm has a family holiday party each year and some poor partner (though his year, it was a counsel) gets to be Santa and have lots of kids cry in his lap. There's always food, gingerbread house decorating, and other activities, and it's so fun to see all the kids we hear so much about.

Landon was excited about Santa right up until we stood next to him. Suddenly he wasn't so sure, but he rallied and sat on his lap and told him he wanted an Iron Man, a Batman, and a Spider-man. Also, a Superman. Apparently we are now into superheroes. This was the first his personal Santa had heard of it.

He also got to make a square for the gingerbread house. He may have gone a little heavy on the peppermints.

I thought we should get a picture of the Biscuit alone with Santa.

She disagreed:

um, what is happening? who is this man?

you are not my daddy. WHERE IS MY DADDY?


phew, found him

I'm at work even though the office is closed for a firm holiday (grr opposing counsel, GRRR). But I just came from the mall where I got an amazing deal on ski clothes for the kiddos (we're going skiing in 2012, it is GOING TO HAPPEN, we are saving already) and I fit into a new pair of my old size of jeans! Not a stretched out, I've owned them forever pair - one off the shelves at Gap! And 45% off! Happiness abounds.

Merry Christmas Merry Merry Christmas.

(I have TSO playing in my office. I'm really going to miss this music when Dec. 26th rolls around.)


  1. Um, LL, someone may have already alluded to it, but Landon will not be ready to retire the Christmas music on the 26th. I speak as a person who heard Raffi sing Christmas until we went to a Parachute Express concert in about August-- and lived to tell about it!

    Best holiday wishes to you and your family. It looks like it will be a really good one for you-- now go make some memories.

    Hugs all around,


  2. Merry Christmas LL.
    I just know your family will have a very merry Christmas ... how could you not?
