I know this is early - because it's not even Thanksgiving yet....but for some reason this year I'm SO aware that the holiday season is close and am like so scared it's going to sneak up on me, I feel like I'm trying to do everything early. Christmas shopping is half way done (love Amazon), most of the Christmas decor is up (besides the stocking I had to order for Maddie!) AND we went and saw Santa last weekend.
We went back to Bass Pro in Olathe and got there first thing on a Saturday morning, just like we did last year. This year we obviously had one more babe in tow, which made it a little more fun. And the fact that Charlie was actually into all the fun events and things they had to do - it was a great little Saturday morning.
We tried out all the fun toys at Bass Pro and even rode the reindeer on the carousel!!
HOWEVER. The whole meeting Santa thing.
Well - it was not quite the picturesque moment I had in my head. Yeah, not at all. But I should have seen that coming from a mile away.
Maddie - she was the perfect angel. I handed her off to Santa and she was just as happy as can be. Charlie wanted NOTHING to do with Old St. Nick. He did want a candy cane, but that was about it.
So obviously, we forced him to go stand with his sister. And this is what we got.
My sister in law put it best with her comment on Instagram...Maddie must have something BIG on her list because she was so good.
The funny thing was that of course after we left Bass Pro all he could do was talk about Santa. Seriously kid? And he's been talking about him for the last 2 days now. Good thing we will likely have a chance to meet with him again this year at a neighborhood hayride...but we'll see how it goes.
Just a reminder of what an angel he was in his picture last year.
Guess the tude he has now is what turning 2 will do you, eh?
I love Bass Pro and I love meeting Santa.
What I cannot wait for is when Charlie actually GETS that Santa only brings him presents if he's good and listens to his mom and dad...
