Brunch with Santa

SHARE THIS

Last Sunday we had brunch with Santa! It was my MIL’s birthday, so it was the perfect excuse to have both sets of our parents come along. Jason, Blaire and I decorated cookies and made Blaire a Christmas stocking. Blaire was okay with Santa when he was standing a few feet away while offering her a candy cane, which she did NOT want to give up. Santa had a gift for each child there and Blaire was excited to help rip off the wrapping paper and then play with her new Elmo bath toy.

BUT… when it came time to sit on Santa’s lap for a picture, Blaire was not a fan. However, it was past her nap time. She was grumpy and hungry, and just not having it. Poor girl! I thought she might calm down if I held her, and as you can see in the photo below, it didn’t help. We still plan to take Blaire to the mall to see Santa. I’m hoping if there are less people around and she’s not hangry, then it might go better. PLUS, she has the cutest outfit to wear to see him. If you follow me on Instagram, which you should DEFINITELY be doing, then you already have seen a sneak peek! ;)

I just had to wrap up with a family picture! Blaire is looking down at our dog Mocha, in case you’re wondering. HA! How was your little one’s visit to Santa? What traditions are your favorite for the holidays? I’d love to hear them! xo

    • ice cream outside with two of my favorite people. when it’s only 70° outside you can actually eat your ice cream without it melting all over us... and by us I mean them. 👆🏻👆🏻 #blaireandben

    • Well we don’t have a Nordstrom near us, but we do have an Aldi. Most of their summer items are on clearance and we scored this sweet pool for $7. Winner, winner. 🦄☀️ #blaireandben

    • This summer hasn’t really felt like summer yet. 🤨 So when we have an 85° day we make the most out of it with a trip to the pool! How’d you spend your Sunday Funday? #blaireandben
    • another day, another doctors appointment for someone in our crew. today it’s Ben. he was up overnight saying his ear hurt — a double ear infection for him. luckily the kid loves taking medicine and hasn’t let his ears get him down! as long as he’s up moving around they’re fine, but the second he lays down... 😭😭😭. hoping our poor buddy is feeling better tomorrow. do you feel like you need a frequent flier card for your pediatrician? just me? okay. #blaireandben #itsfinewerefine

    • When your brother is getting big but you still want to hold him... you gotta pinch his butt because he’s so wiggly. 😂😬😍 #blaireandben •

    • It is definitely bittersweet to leave the house where we brought both of these babies home. But we are excited for our next chapter as a family of five! #rainbowbaby #blaireandben

    • Last night was our first night in the new house. 👏🏻 We still have lots of stuff to bring from the old house and then lots of cleaning over there before the final walk through and closing next Monday. Then we can focus on getting this house unpacked and organized. But first, I would like a nap. 😴 #blaireandben #happilytristahome

    • This sums up our Sunday. After driving around like crazy people to go to three parties yesterday, today was lazy and included movies, popcorn, long naps, quick trick or treat at the mall and then spaghetti pizza. And I might be eating my kids candy on the couch right now. 😍 How was your weekend? #blaireandben
    • Childhood... drinking a frosty in your teepee. what. a. life. We had a slow weekend. Literally vegged out at home 95% of the time and it was marvelous.  #blaireandben
