Yesterday was a day I hope remains in my kids minds forever. It wasn't that anything totally amazing happened but it was an awesome day. We took the kids to see Santa at the Mall, which is the first time we have ever done it at the Mall. (I have a terrible fear of losing one of my kids in a busy mall and not being able to find them. ) Then we took them to Build-A-Bear and let them pick their own animal, Chloe chose a kitty who she name Sarafina and Zach chose a dog who he named Fluffy. It was just soooo magical to watch their excitment and amazement while their animals were being stuffed and all the fun stuff that they get to do. We told them that these were a Christmas gift from Dan and I so we would let them make it today but then we would have to keep it until Christmas. Much to my amazement they didn't have a total melt down when it was time to hide them away for a few weeks. Zach wanted to give his one last hug and so did Chloe, it was to cute. I am so glad we waited to do this until they were a bit older, they understood what was going on and got a lot more into than I thought they would,especially Zach! It was just a really really nice day with them.... it feels like it's been a looooong time since we had a day like that. Here are a few pics from yesterday!
