I had no idea what to expect. I was better than my wildest dream.
Stirring ice-cubes into her first glass of tea.
After our lunch we headed across the street for dessert at Grandma's Bakery.
|Even though she ate a ton at lunch and three teacups of tea, she chose the largest |
cinnamon roll ever.
After dessert we did a bit of shopping. Victoria touched every little thing she saw. Everything! If you were in downtown WBL that day you would have heard me saying, "Look wiht your eyes, not with your fingers," hundreds of times. I eventually gave it. She dropped a couple things but nothing broke and then I ended up having a lot more fun. Then she saw a little tray of snacks. It was low enough for her to see and it had mini cups of goldfish and pretzels. Not exactly an adult treat. She ate again! I found an Advent calendar in the form of a line of 25 stockings. It's been fun revealing the fun contents each day.
Aunt Molly came back to our house and was treated to being introduced to all 101 stuffed animals that Victoria owns. Then Mark and Christian came home with a Santa for our front yard. Since Molly was there we all headed out for a family shot.
I love this picture! It looks like Santa is towering over our house.
He's quite large, but this angle makes him seem even larger!
Next Molly and I headed off for some adult time shopping at Charming Charlie's.
When I got home I was exhausted.
It was a day filled with memories!
