First Snow and Santa

The other morning we woke up, and we had a dusting of snow on the ground. Molly has been waiting so patiently for snow, and she was absolutely thrilled. She had school that morning, so she was even able to wear her boots on the walk over. She was definitely excited. I can't wait until we actually get some real snow, more than 1/8 of an inch.

Yesterday Molly woke up with some crazy bed head. She has lately been sleeping on what she calls her "blankie pillow," which is just her blanket layed across her pillow, and I think since it's not silky, it makes her hair get a little knotted in the back. It was pretty funny, and since we were getting such a kick out of it, she was too.
For the last few weeks, we've been asking Molly if she wants to go see Santa at the mall, and she has absolutely refused. Her response has always been, "No! Santa's too big!" Well, we decided not to waste our money on a Santa picture that she didn't really even want anyway, so we waited until our ward Christmas party tonight. It worked pretty well. Once she saw her friends sitting on Santa's lap, even thought she wasn't thrilled with the idea, she did do very well. So at least we got our obligatory yearly Christmas Santa picture.

I am glad that you got your Santa picture! It's important to us sentimental mommies!

Yeah! I've been noticing how long her hair is getting... that may be another reason for the nice bed head. heehee.
