Our birthday was the last day of school for the year, so it was a big day!
After school, we headed to the Mall of America for our annual tradition of seeing Santa on our birthday. We got to eat in the food court - rice at PF Chang. We didn't like the chicken very much, but we love rice!!
Of course, mom made sure our smiles were ready while we waited in line to see Santa.
Then was time for the real thing. Santa quizzed us and made sure we were helping Mom & Dad, eating our vegetables (that was a stretch for us), brushing our teeth, cleaning our rooms (Mom & Dad said that was a stretch for us). And, we got to sit on his lap & tell him what we wanted and take our picture.
We've seen Santa on our birthday EVERY YEAR on December 19th for 9 years now!

After seeing Santa, we got to check out Lego Land.
After Legoland, Daddy checked out a store while Mommy took our picture in front of the big trees.
Seriously, those trees are HUGE!!
When we got home, it was time to open our cards & gifts. We got cards from Grandma Diane & Aunt Carolyn, and gifts from Mom & Dad. There were only 2 gifts. The first one was pajamas, but the second one we got to open was a Kindle HD Fire 6!
It was an exciting day, but we were ready for bed quickly so we could get up the next day to go see Grandma & Grandpa Schuelke for Christmas with them!
