Today was a big day. Not only is it Veteran's Day, which is special for all of us as Americans (have you thanked a Veteran today?), but today something else big happened. Today we visited Santa. You know, the big jolly guy from the North Pole? He made a special stop here in Alabama, at our favorite little children's boutique, just down the street from us. Today, Hudson met Old St. Nick for the very first time.
Santa was sweet and happy and oh so festive! I was a bit worried about how Hudson would feel about sitting in a strange bearded man's lap, but my surprise he did just fine. Sure, it took him a couple minutes to warm up to him, but once he did, he had no problem snuggling up to him....and even digging in his little sack of candy.
Today was a fun day. And I felt great about my outfit*...like Santa Claus, I was pretty festive, too.
And if I wasn't already in enough of a holiday mood, I definitely am ready for Christmas, now.....

*So if any of you noticed, I did trade out the tall black boots I had originally included in the 30 items for these little black booties. I hadn't worn the tall boots yet, so it's a fair trade, right?
AND here's a sneak peek of our visit with Santa....more to come soon!
