We also spent an hour getting our Christmas Pictures done. As always, we ended up using the Memory Makers at Macomb Mall. This year they have Santa, an AMAZING Santa. Next week the Mall will start having their own Santa, so I hope that this one wont be gone, but he was great with our Monster and we had wonderful results. I have NEVER paid for a Santa picture before, and was more than happy to fork over the dough. Even on our super tight budget, this was something we could afford (hello $10 bucks a sheet, no sitting fee, and you can have additional family pictures taken at the same time.)
And now I feel like I have totally made this a promotional blog post.
On a side note, I haven't posted a Blessing for Yesterday or Today (it is just getting harder!). Yesterday I was able to go out and visit a friend, one that moved on us right before school started, and we have missed. With that said, it is such a Blessing to have friends, who even after they move, try to keep in contact. It is hard enough for me to trust people in general, but to actually number someone as my friend is truly rare.
Today, I am Blessed with a wonderful community. Harper Woods is an amazing little town, where if you didn't know already, has great programs available for families. Chris helped with Little League this year, Amandine had Karate, they have a great little dance program, swimming, basketball, parades, and a amazing families that live in our city. Unfortunately there are some bad spots, like all neighborhoods, and because of our size it sometimes looks worse than it is. But when you have amazing neighbors like our Mr. Chet, great teachers, and a strong community feeling, you can't help but fall in love.
