Santa Claus is coming to town, well we did...

Yesterday we took Marley to get her picture taken with Santa... It was a beautiful plan that came crashing down around us the minute that they opened the door to his room and she started screaming!!! Saving the day was a 'sleeping' breathing Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer in front of a fake fireplace... She wouldn't have a bar of Santa though, after she had calmed down we decided to go with the family photo option, and she was still eyeballing Santa as he sat next to us...


Post Santa, we went to the Pancake Parlour for a late breakfast, which was delicious! The Jamaican Banana was soooo good! Mark had a short stack with the home made chocolate fudge, it was amazing and crazy rich!!! Marley wasn't interested the minute they gave her a placemat and crayons to draw with, obsessively... Totally satisfied, we checked out the Myer Christmas windows... The queues were outrageous, and unfortunately they weren't even close to being as good as last year... Oh well, a quick trip to Outré, cruise around Melbourne Central and we were done...

So we went to town to see Santa, and it was a disastrous start to a lovely family day...
