Happy Birthday and Visiting Santa

Yesterday was the birthday of my husband, the most wonderful man in the world. He is the man of my dreams and the most amazing father our little girl(s) could ever ask for. He is so selfless that for his birthday we went to visit Santa Claus and go swimming. At least we had dinner from his favorite Chinese restaurant. What a guy!

So as I mentioned above, we had "Lunch With Santa" yesterday at the local Recreation Complex. It was quite fun actually. When we arrived the Civic Band was set up and playing Christmas songs. We were served hotdogs, mandarin oranges, chips, a juice box and a treat for dessert. The perfect lunch for a kiddo. After we ate it was time to get in line to talk to Santa. K wasn't as enthusiastic about talking to him this year but she still did really good and even gave him a hug and kiss before she hopped off his lap.

Santa was very cute and sweet. It was nice having a Santa with an actual mustache and beard.
K brought along Clarice from the Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer movie. She is obsessed with that movie right now.

After Santa left a local children's musician played fun Christmas-themed songs for the kids. K loved it and immediately ran out to the dance floor. She was jumping and spinning and shaking her jingle bells with all her heart. This girl LOVES to dance and will take any and every opportunity to twirl and wiggle to the music.

After the dancing was over we put on our bathing suits and headed for the pool. I laughed to A about the fact that who would have ever thought we'd be swimming on his birthday! K did really great. She was really having a great time holding our hands and "swimming" to us. She was doing a great job kicking her feet. I think her favorite part was laying back on me and kicking her feet to splash water at Daddy.  This wonderful man really spoils us girls and we love him so much for it. Happy Birthday, my angel. I love you.
