I will start with the best part.
Phones in the bathrooms.
Room to room calls are complimentary. So Mimi goes to Nana's room and Bella stays in ours. They are occupied for hours.
Second best part: Macy's 8th Floor.
Macy's is set up a little weird if you ask me. First you meet Santa, then you write him a letter. ?? The kids should write Santa the letter, then hand it to him. HELLO this isn't rocket science!
I love you so much. Can you please bring me lots of presents.
Bella my little artist draws her and Santa hanging out together.
We bundle up for Holidazzle parade. Or as Mimi calls it, Hozzidazzle, which I happen to prefer.
If you live in a warm climate, I almost feel sorry for you. You will never get to see your children look this puffy and adorable.
Here we are camped out! A Star Tribune photographer takes the girls' pictures and asks them lots of questions. The next morning, we pour through the Trib. Nothing. Darn it! That would have been scrapbooking gold!
I believe Minneapolis Holidazzle is ending this year. After many, many years, we may need to find a new tradition!
