Ashlyn wasn't totally thrilled about sitting with Santa, but she totally lost it when I got up to get out of the picture. We tried all the "meeting a new person" tricks we had up our sleeve, like letting Lovey meet the new person too (see Santa's right hand)...but to no avail...maybe she'll appreciate Santa Clause more next year. :o) Christmas tree is decorated now! Tonight I wrap gifts and make a list of what else I have left of Christmas shopping and I will hopefully get to start sewing our stockings and tree skirt. It's not on the diet plan, but I think I'll sneak in a big mug of Hot Cocoa too! 17 days until Christmas and counting!!!!
