We took Ryan first to Countryside Mall and got his picture taken with Santa. Grandpa went with us. :) We got a photo package and a $20 gift card to Shutterfly, which hopefully will help with our Christmas cards....nice discount. He got a Shining Stars stuffed animal, too. Ryan did awesome. He didn't cry at all. He pulled Santa's beard. hehe Then we went to International Mall. It was so pretty there and all decorated (see above). We were going to walk through the snow globes, but there was a 10 minute wait and we didn't feel like waiting. We had done that enough at the other mall for Santa and Starbucks, which BTW I got a HOT drink, which means it is cold enough to drink a hot beverage (in the 40s the last two nights). :) We got Godiva truffles and even a free truffle for getting a Godiva little scan card thingy and we get free chocolate with it every month. YES! We ate dinner and walked around. AND I got a new necklace from Swarovski Crystal. Well kinda. Sean had given me a cross necklace for my Baptism a couple of years ago, but one of the little crystals fell out recently. I went in there basically to ask them where to take it to get it fixed, but they just gave me a brand new one for free without a reciept or anything. SWEET! Sooooo, I will HIGHLY recommend this company to everyone and I will definitely shop there....hopefully often!
