Ho-Ho-Ho - A visit with Santa




Well, believe it or not I guess the Christmas season is officially here. I usually don't see Santa make his annual appearance until at least Thanksgiving but this year he's out early. We were on our way to the Stone Mountain Christmas Festival but had to make a quick stop at the mall. As luck would have it, Santa was there and there was no line. Since the girls were already dressed the part, I decided to go ahead and get our annual picture taken. This year was completely different from last year. As the pictures show, Ansley was not happy at all! She was more ticked off than she was scared and poor Santa got his share of kicks and head butts from her. Let's hope after that visit she doesn't go on his naughty list!!

Flashback Friday - 1983

Oh my goodness, where do I start with this one?? I was a HUGE fan of the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack when I was a kid. My Nana would put the album on for me and would go take a nap. I would listen to it ALL AFTERNOON and never get sick of it. As I got a bit older they came out with the sequel and of course I LOVED this theme song. Recently I heard it on satellite radio and had to dig it up. I have to also admit that when I hear this song it also reminds me of the Saturday Night Live skit with Martin Short doing his synchronized swimming routine. I tried to find the video clip but had no luck. Enjoy!

A ride on The Pink Pig - An Atlanta tradition

Macy's Pink Pig (Priscilla) has officially made her debut this year. I took the girls to the mall this afternoon and they had their very first ride on her. This tradition started back in 1953 in Rich's department store in downtown Atlanta but now Priscilla resides outside Macy's at Lenox Square Mall. The girls and I had a blast and we look forward to continuing this holiday tradition for many years to come. Now we can officially say....WE RODE THE PINK PIG!!

Well, it's been over a week since I've blogged so I figured I better get something up and going before I abandon this project! The past week has been too exhausting with all of the election stuff and mentally trying to recuperate from the busy month of October. They are now starting to play christmas music in all the stores....starbucks has the red cups out, everything is all about Christmas now so I figured I better go get pictures made. The girls did pretty good this year until about 5 minutes into the shoot. Then Ansley decided she was tired of sitting still and smiling. She did however have fun saying Ho-Ho-Ho throughout the shoot. Better get your lists ready folks....Christmas is a coming!!
