Once Upon a Weekend…

December 3, 2012 - Author: Amy - 26 Comments

Once upon a weekend approaching Christmas, a young, vivacious, and aesthetically pleasing mother took her precious little boy to meet Santa Claus.  On the trip in to meet him, the mother explained to the boy the magic of Santa; of how he could sit upon his jolly lap and describe toys of his wildest dreams, and if he is a good boy, Santa would be inclined to deliver such gifts on Christmas Eve.

The little boy was not impressed.

Then his uncle arrived to spread joy to all the holiday revelers lucky enough to gaze upon his glorious beard.

But it takes a lot to impress this little boy.

(A lot as in his mother dangling chocolate above the camera.)

Later that evening, the young and vivacious mother donned her finest evening wear for her strapping and stylish husband’s company Christmas party.

The wine flowed like beer (name that movie), the music, interestingly enough, took the couple back to the glory days of the mid 90′s, and the husbands toes were thoroughly pulverized under the rhythmically challenged wife’s heels.

‘Twas a fine evening indeed.

The Christmas spirit lived on into the next day where the happy family added more decorations to their abode under a 70 degree sky.

And where at least one family member is anxious for Santa’s arrival.

  2. Sounds like the perfect weekend, Amy. You look beautiful (of course!!!) all dolled up for your big night out.

    Happy Happy!!

  4. “And the women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capastrano”? I literally LOL’d at his chocolate-loving face! Maybe he could get in on a meme with Michaela Maroney with his “not impressed” attitude. ;)

  5. Sounds like you guys had a lot of fun! Did Junior actually sit on Santa’s lap? I was secretly hoping for a child melting down on Santa’s lap photo but I think Junior’s too cool for that :)

    Yeah, he just kept a cool distance from him. ;)

  7. You truly are aesthetically pleasing- haha! I loved this recap. Junior is hilarious in his expressions. I love the Santa one- “if you get any closer- I’ll squirt you with this here milk”. And I love the double tie look on D. The one he was wearing just wasn’t enough- had to add the second one. Looks like a great weekend.

  8. Sounds like you guys had a great weekend! At least Jr. wasn’t crying when he met Santa, right?! I will have to keep the chocolate as bribery thing in mind ;) What a cutie pie!

  9. Sounds like you guys had a lot of I was secretly hoping for a child melting down on Santa’s lap photo but I think Junior’s too cool for that

  11. Hahaha! Junior is seriously the most awesome kid! He could have his own “Junior is not impressed” meme! ;)

  12. by Amy

    I need to look in to this! ;)

  13. I loved this post… such a way with words. I don’t blame him for not wanting to sit in Santa’s lap… I wouldn’t have either.
    Oh and by the way. Y’all make the cutest couple. Glad y’all had fun at the party.

  14. by Amy

    lol… Thank you!

  15. And to all a good night……. especially Bill.


  16. Cute Amy! I don’t recall looking too happy in any of my Santa photos either!

  17. his face looking at Santa just kills me…hysterical! You guys looked adorable at the xmas party…my hubs’ toes too, would have been pulverized to smithereens. I did not get the dancing genes…

  18. You kill me. This is sure to be the next holiday classic!

    Wonderful Christmas story! Very festive! The Santa thing reminds me of my niece. When she was little, she was scared of Santa but still wanted to make sure he got her wish list for Christmas so she would walk by the gate surrounding the Santa area and yell her list to him. We called it drive-by Santa. Got to love kids!

  20. Ah, thank you for that little chuckle with my morning coffee, Amy!! Junior just cracks me UP! You are in for some serious fun over the next 20+ years. :-)

  24. by Amy

    They frown on people taking leftover booze. YOu know.. open containers, DUI’s, what not.

  25. that was teh best re-cap ever!

  26. That santa picture is hilarious – it looks like he’s telling Santa not to mess with him :P
