This weekend was a great family-fun weekend. On Saturday night we ran some errands, got some hot chocolate from Starbucks and headed to Jolly Holiday Lights. It seems as though everyone else in the DSM area thought of this idea on Saturday too! It took quite a while to get in to see all the wonderful lights but it was definitely worth it. Brady is fascinated with Christmas lights. He LOVED seeing all the light displays! He would get so excited, it was so fun to watch him.
Then on Sunday we went to Bass Pro Shop to see Santa. Brady has been saying how much he wants to see Santa. Well last year was a complete disaster...he cried and screamed and wanted nothing to do with him. I thought maybe the same would happen this year when he actually got up there to see him. He surprised Andy and I so much. He walked right up, said 'Hi Santa', he gold Santa he wanted choo choo trains, smiled for his pictures, waved to Santa when he was done and said 'Thank You Santa'. He did such a great job!!! After sitting on Santa's lap, we went over to the coloring section, looked at some race cars and the choo choo trains and then headed home. He had lots of fun and keeps looking at his picture from Bass Pro. We might just have to go see Santa again! What a difference a year makes!
