{sol} not too early ... right?

We did it.

We took our girls and we went.

I never intended to do this.  It was not predetermined or planned.

It just kinda-sorta-happened.  All on a whim.

Yep.  We saw Santa.  And his reindeer.  Before Thanksgiving.

I know, I can't believe it either!  I am one to celebrate the holiday that is coming and not any earlier.  I love Thanksgiving, so we celebrate being thankful.  And this last weekend, we rushed by it all and saw Santa.

The good news?  It was free.  I snapped a few cute photographs.  Now we can avoid the busy mall and the overpriced photo with a crying child trying to get away from this big man in a funny red suit because we waited and sweated in our fancy dresses for hours...

And the conversation overheard on Santa's lap was priceless:

Santa:  And what would you like for Christmas this year?
M:  Um ... a trampoline. (By the way, this is the first we heard about this!)
P (leaned forward to look around Santa at M):  You can't put a trampoline in a present!
M (leaning forward to respond to her sister):  You can put it into pieces!
Mommy and Daddy and Santa:  {Laughing.  Out.  Loud.}

Quite a memorable way-too-early trip to see Santa.

And that night it snowed ... because Santa had to head back to the North Pole.

Not too early, right?


  1. Not too early at all! Too cute!
    I could picture the leaning forward comments!

  2. Will there be a trampoline, in pieces? :)

  3. If you wish you can visit Santa all year round in Finland. (http://www.santaclausvillage.info/)

    1. Hmmm...Finland is near Estonia, right??? :)

  4. Sweet memory captured in your slice. Thanks for sharing.

  5. I love the memories...and usually they are so much better than the planned ones. I'm so glad that you record your sweet girls conversations. xo


Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
