This year, we decided to take Oscar to see Santa at our local hardware store. It was just weird enough, close enough and NOT THE MALL enough to draw us in. Since we don’t really go all out for the Santa stuff anyway, I don’t really care if he looks the part all that much. We walked around, bought a dowel and some screws, saw Santa and had hot chocolate and brownies.
And while Oscar wasn’t exactly EAGER to climb atop the lap of our bearded friend, he was a good sport. You know, because he got candy. From a stranger. How are we cool with this again? I digress.
Look at him just a year ago! What a difference.
Merry Christmas Ya’ll!
