We are about a week late getting started with our holiday activities this year as we had some home improvement stuff going on and are just getting our house back together. We ventured out to the mall this weekend for a visit was Santa. We weren' t sure how it was going to go as last year Grace wouldn't sit will Santa unless mommy was with her. Grace seemed excited but we thought she may freeze up when her big moment came. But she surprised us and marched right up and plopped herself down next to Santa and rattled off the list of presents that she has in mind this year.
