The Great Expedition To See Santa: 2005



We did it! WE actually did it! Angi protested quite vocally, but we did it. I thought it went all right. Angi thought it was a disaster. So we get up, get dressed, brush our teeth, mouthwash, then it’s time to get the kids. This is at 3ish. We are looking for the “dress up clothes” for the picture, and we can’t find them. So we find something for a backup. We go up and get the kiddos, actually Angi does. I get the camera, and stuff ready, start the Jeep, put the stuff in it, and move it so we can get the kids in it without killing ourselves, and yeah, the kiddos too. OKAY, while Angi gets sissy, she finds the dress up outfits on one of the dressers in her room. Cool! So we change the diapers, put the clothes on. Angi fixes their hair all nice and nifty, and yes they fought every step of the way. We get ‘em going, and we start out the door. Off we go. Got the xmas radio station on, and the kids, mainly sissy, is swinging her legs, dancing her head, and singing her little gibberish to the songs. She is quite the little singer/dancer. We get there, at the mall. Yeah, I’m not very good at details. It was a lot more complicated, but hey, what can I tell you?


SO we get there, and get in the mall. Once we go down a few stores, there is a stroller parking lot. The ones where you put your money in, and it unhooks the one you choose, after you put the certain number in. SEE, I told you I suck at details! So we try to get a stroller, because the kiddos are acting up a little bit, and it’s hard to handle two kids, camera bag, two kid coats, and you get the picture. We find a cool little two sitter that looks like a car, and each of the kids have their own steering wheel. So, yeah, that will work! OH wait….I forgot my wallet and check book in the Jeep. Son of a…….. So Ang sits down with the kids on a bench in the mall, and I run out back to the Jeep. Okay, got them, so I go to the machine where you put your money in. Son of a……. I don’t have ANY cash!!!! SOOOOOO… Angi has a hold of both the kids again, we go to an ATM which, thankfully, is right there. So, I get the cash, (Mer Fer charged me $2.50 to get MY money!!!!!!!!!!)….. Son of a……… OKAY. We got the cash, and now I have to break a twenty, because, it only takes $5 and $1 dollar bills. It takes five bucks to rent a stupid race car stroller. So, I run to a shop, where I can get something really cheap to break a twenty. I get a cookie from whatever shop it is, and get some five and ones. Angi still has the kiddos, and right about now, she is about to go ballistic, and have a heart attack, and head blow off, at the same time. I got the money! We get the kids into the cart thingy, and I go put the money in, and enter in the number, and whalaa, we got a kiddy holder. The kids are occupied, and they look around while steering their race car, and we go to find Santa. We go down a few different parts, and no Santa, so Angi goes into the Disney store to ask somebody, while me and the kids hang out looking at the window display. So, we are off again, to try to find Santa. We find the area, and we find the start or should I say, the end of the line. There is Rudolph, and the Abdominal Snow monster from the old Rudolph movie. The people in those suits had to be hot as hell. So we scootch up and up and up and up and up and up and up and up and up, and then, we get to the point where Rudolph and the Abdominal say hi, and shake the kids hands. AND THEEEEN we go and scootch up and up and up, scootch up and up and up, and up and up and up and up and up and up and up and up and up and up, scootch up and up and up. And then we are next in line! Alright, I got some pictures of the kids hanging out, and some with the snow monster dude, now it’s the big moment!
