Santa & a party

We took T & his cousins to see Santa this weekend.
I KNEW he was NOT going to like him.
As a matter of fact, I was certain he was going to scream his head off...
I was right.

When Santa came out of his village and was waving and talking to everyone in line (yep, he was the coolest Santa EVER!) T just stared at him.

That's when I knew this was not going to be a pleasant visit.
Oh well, there's always next year (which I'm sure will be the same story).

We took some pictures around Santa's Village.

If you live in the Dallas area and are looking for a good Santa and place to take pics, go to the Village in Fairview/Allen. We had a great experience!
You can even check in to a kiosk or online and they will text you when it's time for you to get your pictures taken so you don't have to wait in line! So you can shop around or get some lunch while you wait.

Backin it up to Friday night...
I met my girlfriends at the W Hotel for some drinks and a little Ghost Bar action.
I'd never been to Ghost bar... and probably won't ever go again.
The views are amazing since you're up like 40 floors looking out over downtown Dallas, but I'm more of a "jeans and t shirt bar" type girl.
"Drinkin' margaritas on a patio" type girl.
Not a "get dressed up and pay for $12 drinks" type girl.
But it was fun, regardless.
This mama needs a TAN!

It's good to go out sans the hubs and kiddo every once in awhile.
An apple martini is good for every mom's soul!
Even though I did miss them like crazy!

We just moved from that area! Poor little guy, but at least you have the fabulous picture to remind him of the fact that Yes you ARE his Mama and he better listen!

We are taking the boys back to that Santa on Saturday morning, Bass Pro Shop SUUUUCKED! That Santa didn't even ask Carson what he wanted and it made me so sad, I saw Carson look up at him like he was ready to tell him what he wanted and Santa just ignored him & smiled for the pic, didn't say one word to him. Then when we got to the car Carson said "But how will Santa know what to get me because he didn't ask me what I want?" Broke this momma's heart!

You look gorgeous in your girls night pics!! We went to the Living Room at the W last weekend after the Stars game, I agree, I'm definately a jeans and tshirt bar girl, we spent $80 at that bar, NO THANK YOU!

I think we are going to take our T to this Santa this weekend! We waited in line for EIGHT hours yesterday for the NP Santa and he wasnt even friendly this year. I was very disappointed (not to say that I would be friendly with that job, but still). Some friends of ours recommended this Santa to us and I think we will be trying that! I am glad to see that someone else had a great experience too!

Jamie Danielle said...

I hated Santa too when I was his age... lol
I remember making Santa get out of his chair so my sister & I could take a pic by ourselves =P
& OMGosh I want your black dress! I love it!!!!

Lindsey said...

i'm LOVING your dress! where did you get it?!

Jumping Jack said...

Love the pic of T and Santa! I'm sure that's exactly what Jack's will look like! HA!

I'm more of a jeans bar girl too - but nowadays my "bar" is mi casa! Glad you got a girls' night out! I could def use one of those!
