Today is one of those great days, so far! Ari slept in until 8 this morning, which is pleasantly happening more often. We headed out to Eddie's Place for brunch with Michelle & Ella, I had french toast [yum]! Ella ate pancakes, we tried to give Ari some, I wish I had the camera with me to catch his reaction. He scrunches his eyes shut, clamps his mouth closed and shakes his head back and forth so you have no chance of getting food anywhere near his mouth. As frustrating as it is he makes me laugh every time (don't worry, I laugh on the inside so he doesn't see).
After brunch we headed out to the mall to return/exchange some stuff. We got there pretty early, it was still busy but not total mayhem. I got Ari the cutest little brown loafers to wear this weekend. On our way out we cruised by Santa so the babies could see and I have to admit, it was one good lookin' Santa. Well, he looked good as Santa, not that he was cute or anything. His beard was real, long & white, and his face really was rosy! He even had a little belly... he gave us some pointers on how to take the babies up to him so we could get a photo without them screaming. We'll have to test it out a little closer to Christmas, it's way too early to be sitting on his lap now.
Ari fell asleep before we were even out of the parking lot, I even managed to get him up to his crib and back asleep once we got home, a monumental task that's almost never accomplished! I stopped at Starbucks on our way out too, gotta love the Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha, SO good!
This is the RAK I won from Kristy, it took a little while to get here all the way from Australia but so worth the wait! I can't wait to dive in... and since it's here it's time for a little RAK of my own! Leave a comment today and I will draw one random winner for a little goody box of my own! I will pick the random winner one week from today, how does that sound!!
Last but not least, the neat art clips I ordered from Land Of Nod. I'm going to hang them above the window in my scrap area. I thought they would come in handy to clip up the photos I'm about to scrap. It's a great way to jump start my inspiration!
Matt gets home in about 4 hours, he just has to go to Lexington, KY and back and he will be home for the night! We're headed out to Louiville tomorrow evening, I have PT in the morning before we go. If I don't update tomorrow I am taking the laptop with me so I can stay in touch while I'm gone. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
