With only a 30 minute wait we finally got a picture with Santa. Addison wasn't sure about him at first but once I sat her next to him everything was fine. She told him she wants a Cinderella computer (or a Cindewelwa puter), I don't think he had any idea what she said. At least I got a good picture this year and I took it myself. They wanted $15.99 for 1 picture, Get Real!

This is my kind of menu.
Mail being delivered to the North Pole.
Goodies in the bakery.
I also try to get Addison's picture taken with Santa every year even though she hates it. I still have not done that this year. AHHHHHHHHH! and the kids are out of school now so the mall will be packed. Here's hoping I get there.

I used SU Ski Slope paper and ribbon. I used baja breeze, choc. chip, real read, and old olive to stamp the tags. Stickles, bling, SU felt flurries.
The stamps I used were:
So Many Scallops
Cute & Curly
Circle of Friendship
tags so much
Tags for All
The tins are from papertrey.

I got this idea from Taylored Expressions. Mine did not turn out half as well as hers. First I didn't get the name centered. Then I tried to fix that with stamping some circles to even it out. It looks worse. So I glued on the buttons to cover that up. I will have to try again on the other side of the chalk board. I guess they can't all be winners.

The note pad idea came from Mish Mash.
The gift bag is from Chic N'Scratch. I filled a celo. bag with chocolates from the Target $1 spot (they come 3 in a box). I also made bag filler with the Choc. Chip cardstock.
Both used the same Stampin Up products.

So here's the story. I was "trying" to get Addison and myself ready to go to her OT appt. She climbed onto the ledge of the bathtub and I told her to get down and come get her teeth brushed. When I turned my back, THUD! She fell into the tub and started screaming and holding her shoulder. Yep, you guessed it; she broke her collar bone. The Dr. said it's a easy bone to break. Only 5 lbs of pressure will do it. They gave her a sling. The nurse called it her arm purse. My husband said it probably cost more than a Coach purse. She's on Loratab and a little goofy. This means no little gym for 2 -4 weeks. She's going to hate it. I just hope she feels better by Friday so she can do a little trick-or-treating. Well, I guess I will be home more than I thought this week. Unfortunately I still won't be getting anything done.

Every picture I took in the gym looks the blurry. The kids never stopped moving. I bet some parents got a good nap time today.
Yes there was an outfit change between gym and the cake. My husband thinks I'm crazy. I told him it's like the Emmy's, the host has a costume change at the commercial break. She won't let me do this for long and I'm going to get as much pink and ruffles in as I can. I purchased the dress and headband at the Edina Art Fair this spring. The skirt is so cute with the loose rose petals inside and Addison actually kept the headband on. I can't wait to watch the video Tim took. When they put the cake in front of her she kept licking her lips. She is such a little Princess. She sat up on the step and all the kids were giving her gifts like the Queen of England and her subjects. Next she be talking about herself in third person. "Mommy we are not amused!"
