Landry vs. Santa

Posted: December 12, 2011 in Uncategorized

For everyone that has been along for the ride since the beginning of Run for Dom you know that just two weeks after Dom lost his battle with cancer, Dawn and I were blessed with little Landry.

Last year at Christmas Landry was only 4 months old.  She slept a lot, nursed a lot, pooped a lot and that was really the extent of her Holiday Season.

Well this year it is a whole different ballgame.  Her first “real”Christmas filled with Presents, wrapping paper, a Christmas Tree and even a chance to correspond with the big guy in the North Pole and send her first Santa letter.

Dear Santa ....

This is also her first opportunity to sit on Santa’s lap and tell him what she wants for Christmas.

Her first opportunity came at the Lights of Love 5K and Kids 1K.

Ah, maybe not.

Hoping that was just pre-race jitters before her first 1K Race we tried again the next day at Landry’s School for Breakfast with Santa.

Nope.  Don’t think so.

How about just one more try peanut?  A big smile for Mommy and Daddy?


Hopefully Landry will feel a little bit better about the Easter Bunny this spring.  As for Christmas 2011.  I now have the pictures that I am going to show the boy that is fool enough to show up to the house to take Landry on her first date.

That and my gun collection.

Happy Holidays everyone!
