We sat through one last eek-worthy breakfast and headed out to find a deal on a highchair. We went to Babies R Us and Meijer before landing on a sturdy, five point harness, affordable option. We really weren't expecting to be out and about as long as we were, but Babies R Us didn't have what we wanted in stock. We also decided to grab a couple of Christmas gifts at the store next to Babies R Us.
Once our actual mission was accomplished it was close to lunch. Dave suggested hitting the mall food court so Icie could get some of her favorite noodles.
I wasn't sure of Santa's hours or if he was even officially on duty. I hadn't dressed the girls for pictures. Santa was there and ready and there was no line. I told the voice in my head that was whining about matching outfits and hair bows to shut up. Icie ran right up to Santa and sat down. As soon as Santa was settled with Icie, I kind of just threw Annie on his lap. We are going through the stranger danger stage with Annie, so I was prepared for screams. The girl working the camera was excellent, she shot about 10 pictures before Annie realized that she was not with me or Dave. Icie was talking away to Santa, so this was the best picture we got of both of them. No really great smiles but at least there was no screams.
