Yesterday was a special day ... CC met Santa for the first time!
MJ's firm made special arrangements for Santa to swing by yesterday evening. It was a nice setup, actually -- while everyone waited for their turn to tell the Big Guy what they wanted for Christmas, a conference room nearby was full of snacks, drinks, and arts and crafts, with Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer playing on the big screen. In a few years, CC will have a blast at this annual event!
Being the social girl she is, CC didn't cry a bit when it was her turn on Santa's lap. But she didn't smile either, despite smiling at everyone she'd seen in the halls and in the conference room. She just looked back and forth between Santa and us, taking it all in.
P.S. Notice the gorgeous dress she's wearing. It's her special Christmas dress, smocked lovingly by her Memere (my mom). Don't worry -- there will be more close-up pictures of it in the next few days.
