Yesterday we went to the mall to visit with Santa. Ever since my little Princess was born I would match her Christmas outfit to our Little Professor’s, but now that we have the Milk Monkey I’ve taken it to a new level. I dress my boys in the same outfit.
I love it!
I realize I probably only have a couple more years, at most, to enjoy doing this. For now the Professor humours me and even gets a kick out of it, but I know the year will come when he will be too old to wear the same outfit as his little brother.
Before we get in line to see Santa I like to get a picture of the kids standing in front of the gigantic tree. I do it every year. However this year the little Monkey didn’t want any part of it.
His two older siblings tried to convince him, they tried holding him in place as he screamed and they tried to encourage him to stand with them, but it was just not going to happen.
The Milk Monkey just wanted to explore. There were too many bright and sparkly things to check out.
The Princess and the Professor were more than happy to pose for me!
The Princess even more so than her older brother. She loves having her picture taken!
After our visit with Santa, the kids asked to go on one of the Merry go Rounds. The little Monkey had never been on one, that was their argument, so Daddy and Nana J took them to ride it while I did some Christmas shopping.
Daddy took many pictures and it looks like they had fun, even if they Little Professor could barely get his legs to fit! I’m pretty sure he’ll be requesting rides every time we go to the mall, just like his brother and sister, to which I will almost always reply “no”. Nana J and Daddy of course are another story!
