Santa, Friends, and Parent's Night Out!
This past weekend was a busy one...December seems to be packed for us, but it's o.k., because we have been having a great time. On Friday night, we took Connor to see Santa at the Greeenwood Mall. This is where we took him last year (he was only 3 months old) The picture was adorable and he was too young to be scared! This year, we were a little concerned. He is just now hitting the stage where he has some stranger anxiety. Well, we got him on Santa's lap and you can just see his reaction.....not a fan at all. We high tailed it out of there (I just had to buy the picture first) and he was happy once he was out of Santa's sight! After seeing Santa, we went over to our friends, Erica and Jared's house for a nice dinner and visit. We may have pushed Connor a little too much b/c he was pretty tired and way past his bedtime. Saturday night was adults night!!!!! Yay! We had our couple's dinner for our small group at a wonderful Italian restaurant called Vito Provelone's. Grandma and Grandpa had Connor and mommy and daddy enjoyed a wonderful night out with friends. After eating, we all headed over to Nancy and Mike's for some games and didn't end up getting home till' 3 am and then up at 8 for church! It was so nice to be out with friends!! It was a great weekend!
As you can see, he was none too thrilled with the jolly guy
