Smiling On The Outside

I have to laugh when I see my header photo. You see, I know what parts I cut-out.
So, here we were on our annual Santa visit. We travel a little bit to go to a beautiful shopping area that makes you feel so much richer than you really are. They have the kind of stores that make you feel you should wipe your feet before you enter.
Every hour "snow" falls and we all smile. (I made the mistake of telling my girls to try to catch snowflakes on their tongues only to find out that the snow was actually soap flakes. Ah well, I counted it as their evening tooth-brushing.)
After our Santa visit we let the girls visit a candy store and my oldest chooses a Jaw Breaker that is bigger than her head! She is so-o-o happy. My youngest goes for Gummy Worms.
We are getting pretty cold and find a cozy area, complete with fireplace, and have a seat. Photo Op! Here's the full picture...

Now, if you'll notice my youngest has a mouth full of Gummy Worms and my oldest is doing... what is she doing?

Ah yes. Proudly showing her blue tongue that came from the gigantic Jaw Breaker.
And there I am, smiling like a goof, thinking that my girls were actually going to be sweet for the camera.

  2. Totally their personalities!
    Was this at Bridgeport Village? We skipped Santa (Jordan's afraid) and the little warming tent, but have gone for the past two years for the "snow" and free cocoa (the first year, a couple of guys were roasting chestnuts on a barbecue grill and handing out bags of roasted chestnuts for free! Yum! So Christmasy!).
    Miss you!

  3. Thanks Ann! Amos Lee is AMAZING! Where do you live in Oregon? My little sis is moving there in May. To Eugene. None of us (including her) have ever been there....


Thanks for taking the time to comment! I hope you enjoyed your visit.
