Holiday Family Time and the MOA.

Brian and I got back yesterday, a lot faster than when we went there. Mainly because there wasn't any Holiday traffic also cause my beautiful mom packed us a lot of food. HI MOM! I'm done now.

Brian and I had a conversation about who would write about this, I got to, so please enjoy our shopping trip to the Mall of America.

We brought little Rachel along with us, she wanted to play at the amusement park while we shopped. She is only four, so one of us had to follow her around. Brian was tasked with carting her around, while I went shopping.

I've always gotten really great gifts from my parents and family, now that we have money to give equally great gifts, we are! So I went shopping, since my mom now knows about this blog, I will not mention what I bought. Just to give an idea, Brian was not happy with how much I bought.

On Brian's side, he took her to the amusement park in the mall and claims that Rachel rode the swing ride, somewhere around 11 times. Rachel claims over a hundred times. Brian bought her a funnel cake as they made their way over to Santa. They were in the line for about an hour, before Rachel sat on his lap.

Brian reports that she wants three things for Christmas:

1. Sophie. She wants my doggy.
2. The life size pony. She's getting it from her dad.
3. She wants us to name one of the twins after her. That's not going to happen.

While this was going on Brian got hit on by one of the elves. She snuck her phone number in the photo card we got from Santa. I threw it out the window.

Just to be safe.

Too bad that while you were asleep that night, Brian drove back out there in his pajamas and searched up and down the shoulder of the highway with a flashlight.
