Santa Claus is Coming to Town

Last week we went to the mall. It was the first day Santa was there. Seriously, 2 weeks before Thanksgiving the big guy shows up at the mall. They are really trying to push the holiday aren't they?
The Kid wanted to let Santa know that he wants the Diego Dino Mountain Playset. It is the only thing he has been asking for for weeks. Has mommy bought it yet? No. Am I a bad procrastinator? Yes. I really need to get this thing now before it's all sold out. I haven't had a chance to shop without him...although, I should just get it online, duh. Anyway, the mall. yea. This mall had a great Santa AND a sassy little Mrs. Claus too. They got to sit and chat because there was absolutely not one kid in line. The mall was empty on a Friday afternoon.
But, now I really wish that I took the sleeping Baby out of the stroller to get in on the photo opportunity. Oh well, we'll try again after Thanksgiving with the adorable outfits I got them with a gift card I had from the Children's Place.

After the Santa visit, the Kid went over to the area that they created for Christmas for F.A.O. Schwartz. It's not there all year. Look at the $200+ stuffed animals. Who buys those? I can barely fit all the crap that the Kid plays with in the house.

I don't think that giraffe would even fit in my house!

People buy some crazy stuff for their kids. Have you seen the freaky pony that "responds to your kid's touch?" It looks like some sort of zombie creature that was brought back to life by taxidermy.

Anyway, I think stuffed animals are THE WORST. They take up space, the kids mostly ignore them, and yet won't let you get rid of them. And people always give them to kids when they don't know what else to give them! It SUUUCKS!

I don't like stuffed animals now that I'm a mom. And, a 3 ft elephant? Do you have to dust that it's so big? Good luck finding your Diego.

I know exactly where you took all those pictures. I just wrote a post about my last visit to the Monmouth Mall. Those kiosk dudes flip me out.

Someday we should do a Jersey Shore Blogger meetup...with Mommyvents.

After the holidays of course.
