This morning, Jeromey and I tried to film a fire noodle challenge video for fun and post it on YouTube. But my DSLR decided to only record half of it. We didn’t realize it until we were all done and I looked at my camera only to see that it had filmed Jeromey’s reaction only. It cut off before I took my first bite of the noodles. It was actually really fun to film it and I’m a little sad that I can’t share it with you guys. I’m not sure if it is a setting on my camera or whatnot, but it filmed 12 minutes worth and then stopped. We didn’t eat for the whole time it was recording, because I wanted to do some “backstage” shots. Oh well. We laughed it off and I decided to find something fun for us to do and blog about it. Stillwater was having an event downtown to see Santa and reindeer. And who can say no to Santa, right?
It took us an hour to get ready because little Graham was hungry and needed a nap. But when we got to Stillwater, there was a HUGE line for Santa. We didn’t want to wait. And we didn’t see any reindeer. So we visited some shops around town. Jeromey and I just kept talking about how we were going to come back and eat at almost every restaurant down there. Anyways, we left and decided that since we were near Lake Elmo, we’d go visit Santa at the Christmas tree farm. The Santa there is my favorite Santa. He just has the best personality and the cutest Santa face. Seriously. Haha.
I really thought Graham would do better with Santa. Graham is pretty easy and doesn’t really cry around strangers. But I guess we didn’t really have time to warm up to Santa either. He seemed a little scared. And we didn’t get a good shot of us as a family. I kind of felt rushed. There was a line behind us, but not nearly as long as the line downtown. But oh well. This isn’t the last time we’ll see Santa this year. I’m going to try and get out here again and take some nicer pictures. And maybe get a Christmas tree. We’re a little tight on money now that I’m a stay-at-home mom. But we will still have a wonderful holiday whether or not we have a tree.
