>Yesterday, my friends and I continued our tradition of having our picture taken with Santa at the mall. Yes, I know it’s cheesy but we’ve done it for the past 7 years now so it’s my official start of the Holiday season. I love looking at each of the pics and seeing how our lives have progressed. When we started, we were just 3 married friends with no kids. Now, there are 5 kids total and a lot of memories. The talk has changed from gossiping about work life to chatting about tantrums and politics. M & C, I think we’re maturing! Or maybe not since we still sit on Santa’s lap.
