Toad and Santa, originally uploaded by scootersbabygirl.

Aside from a buttload of work and lots of cleaning, this was an awesomely amazing weekend.

On Saturday we took Toad and Babygirl down to our local little municipal building where we got to see a great clown show (and I use the word clown loosely, because he wasn’t dressed like a clown, thankfully, but did have parts of his act that were definitely clown-like) and to visit Santa!

Babygirl decided that she had no desire to sit on Santa’s lap. I’m going to remind her of that when she’s older and wants to sit on a boys lap. “But honey, you didn’t want to sit on Santa’s lap, so why sit on that boy’s lap?”

Toad, however, was excited and raced to the line. He asked (ie: BEGGED) Santa for a DS for Christmas. Santa’s response? “We’ll see how it goes.” Good Santa. Actually, I’m pretty sure there’s a DS in Toad and Babygirl’s futures, but I’m not sure if it will be Santa providing the DS or mom and dad!

How awesome did that Santa look? Seriously! His outfit was gorgeous and his beard was home-grown! I wanted to go crawl on his lap and ask him if I could have a weekend getaway with the hubby as my Christmas present, but I’m pretty sure the folks who put the show and treat on would have ousted me immediately, which would’ve sucked because Toad and Babygirl both got ice cream, a cookie, a giant glass of milk, and two presents! We’re definitely heading to visit Santa at thsi particular locale again next year.

We then headed up to cut our tree. We go to a place where you can choose and cut your own tree. This year it was $20. I’ve been told that in some places in the nation it cost over $80 to get a real Christmas Tree. Seriously?! That’s nuts!!

Some friends that we haven’t seen in awhile and their children popped up on Saturday and then Scott and I indulged in junk food and Batman. A pinch of cuddling was thrown in as well. A perfect recipe for a Saturday night.

Sunday we were all a bit lazy, but in between work and stuff we managed to get the house cleaned and Toad’s floor cleaned. We even got the tree up when my SIL and her BF showed up. I have some great pics of that I can’t wait to put up.

All in all it was an amazing weekend. One that I hope the children will remember for a very long time.

    “cut a tree”?? what is this “cut a tree” that you speak of? You mean trees don’t normally come in a box with optic fibers and spinning bases? ha..ha.ha.ha…..

    No! But if you’re not careful enough you can get a finger as an accessory!
