But this year I've broken my own rules. I am frighteningly excited for Christmas! I cannot stand it! We've already been listening to Christmas music (or is it "holiday" music?), we have an embarrassingly crappy countdown to Christmas chart made, I've already done half our Christmas shopping, and I'm hoping to convince Cory to put our tree up this weekend. Why all the excitement? It's simple; I am excited because Kennedy is excited. And playing Santa is so much fun!!
But let me back up. I'm getting ahead of myself...
Cory and I had a date planned to the Cheesecake Factory tonight for my birthday. But then we heard that Santa was arriving at City Creek Mall (where we were going to be eating) and we knew Kennedy would go completely nuts to see that. So we arranged our plans to include Kennedy. Grandma and Brynlie got to play.
Date night = an excuse to actually wash my hair, wear it down, and put on makeup.
Anywho, we enjoyed a fabulous dinner and my dates were pretty darn attractive
It was absolutely packed after 15 minutes
After a solid hour of waiting, Santa finally made his appearance
Let's bring on the Christmas excitement!! I love this time of year!! (Not so much the crowds....)
