The season is upon us. I'd heard that Bass Pro Shops had a nice santa and that you hardly had to wait to see him. Apparantly the big man was to be available at noon today. Sooooo, at about 11:30 we headed on down there to beat the rush. Uh, yeah, no. Seriously, I think there must have been 100 people in line and santa wasn't even going to be there for another half hour. They do give you a "fastpass" to come back an hour and half later. Not quite long enough to go back home, just a little too long to wander around the store without starting to go a bit nuts.
Anyway, we did stay and ended up buying a few things --can't imagine those smart people at Bass hadn't thought that might happen LOL!!! --and then got back in the "fastpass" line. Still waited another 30 mins or so. We left there at about 1:15. If it sounds like I'm complaining, I'm really not. G had a lot of fun.
They had a coloring table which kept G happy for like 1/2 an hour. We looked at the giant fish tank and the animals --I couldn't figure out and kind of didn't want to know whether or not they were taxidermy. I was hoping they're fake. I'm sticking with that thought and will be putting my fingers in my ears if anyone tries to tell me different. Lalalalalalala.
As always, G loved Santa. She ran to him, hugged him. I have no idea what she told him she wanted. Earlier she told me that she was going to ask for a Rapunzel doll, and a stuffed bear, giraffe and frog. Oddly, she already has a those stuffies but whatev's.
After that, she got her candy cane and we were good to go... finally. We'll be seeing Santa a few more times this month so this was good practice :-)

Coloring her little mask. G loves to color. She kept saying "look at all the colors I'm using mommy!"
