Today was quite an adventure! I took Haley and Shelby to the local rec center for "Breakfast with Santa". Whew! An elf by the name of Jolly put on a LONG program involving lots of bells, puppets, and magic tricks. Why Haley will sleep through all of that noise but not in a quiet room is beyond me. Shelby loved the production but wanted to run around the whole time. My biceps got a workout trying to keep her corralled!
After Jolly the Elf, we got to go meet Santa. Shelby, ever the flirt, hopped right up in his lap and poked at his beard. She was one of the few kids that didn't cry. She is going to be a handful once she hits her teenage years!
At the end of the day, I think Shelby had the most fun keeping the rec center clean with her new BFF, Arden. Arden's mom captured them sweeping. It was TOO cute.
