Georgie, Kimble and I left the house about 9:30am this morning, to meet some of my friends for a birthday brunch. After a lovely time socializing, we went our separate ways. Instead of going home, I thought I'd take Georgie to see Tangled. I should have taken her yesterday, on her birthday, but didn't think about it until the evening. Anyway, she got some birthday money from her Grandma, and wanted to pay for her ticket. I was happy to let her. However, we had some time to waste, before the movie at 12:30. We stopped at Ross (my favorite store) and I found this cute polkadot fleece jacket for her, priced at just a few bucks. Not finding anything else, we left the store and headed to the mall.
Rounding the corner, looking for an escalator for Georgie to ride, we saw that Santa was there! Even better, there was NO line. We skipped right up to the front and Georgie climbed on Santa's lap. He asked her what she wanted for Christmas, and she said "A barbie. A beautiful barbie". Then, when Santa told her to have a wonderful Christmas, she looked at him and said "We don't get to have a Christmas this year." Santa was crushed. He looked at me like I was the worst parent ever. I had to explain that we are moving the week before Christmas, and although we had to draw the line at all of our Christmas decorations, that we would indeed, still be celebrating Christmas.
I think Santa forgave me. Then he spent a bit of time admiring the binkie clip I made Kimble. He might have said "industrial" a time or two, which made me chuckle. Anyway, after that, we went to see Tangled. We practically had the theater to ourselves, with only two other people watching it with us. Here's a quick picture I took right when the lights went low.
