    We just had a jam-packed weekend. We traveled up to the Twin Cities for our annual Breakfast with Santa at Macy's outing. The kids went to the Holidazzle parade with my parents while Mike and I had a little date night with sushi and the latest Bond movie. We were all up bright and early Sunday morning to dine with the big guy. We were seated at our VIP table once again (not really, but we like to think that since we've sat there for the past two years). As expected Lucy was pretty hesitant about Santa, but the very smart guy helped us get a photo of the two of them together anyway.

    After our adventure at Macy's we high-tailed it back to Rochester. A couple of weeks ago Mike won 4 tickets to Sesame Street Live via a content at our friend Peg's store, A Child's Kingdom. The ticket package included passes to a character Meet and Greet before the show. Lucy was SO excited to see Elmo, although I don't think she understood that he'd be there IN PERSON vs. on a TV like she's used to seeing him. Unlike her earlier encounter with Santa, she was perfectly delighted to sit on Elmo's lap and was disappointed when our turn for photos was over. The show was a lot of fun. Lucy clapped along, danced in the aisle and received a bunch of high-5's from her favorite characters.

     We took Benjamin to a show when he was the same age as Lucy waaaay back in 2007. It was so fun to see each of them enjoy such a magical experience.
