Merry Christmas! Christmas is in full swing here in Canada. It is a little bit weird having Thanksgiving in October. Every part of the holiday season is really thrown off for Lee and me. The Christmas stuff all came out October 31! We decided we would celebrate American Thanksgiving by taking Cora to the mall to meet Santa Claus. Lee and I were just a wee bit excited. She was in a great mood. She laughed in line. She babbled at the other kiddos. She giggled as I carried her up the stairs to Santa's big throne. Then, I sat her on Santa's lap. All was NOT well in Happy Cora Land. She cried. She screamed. She belly ached. She was more than upset. We all laughed. It might have been even more funny because the kids in front of her all cried and the kids behind her all cried. Poor Santa. I kind of wanted to slip him a 20 dollar bill for being a good sport.
