Santa Clause

Yesterday we decided to finally take Lylah to get her picture taken with Santa.  We had a great first time experience.  There were no lines and she loved him.  She kept staring at his beard and I was just waiting for her to get a handful.  I kept trying to make her laugh, but I love the picture that we went with.  My baby is getting so big!

We had two Thanksgivings this year and we really enjoyed them. Pat and Kim came down the week before Thanksgiving because Seth had a big swim meet and that Sunday we all went to Sean's grandparents ward and then had Thanksgiving dinner afterward with everyone. It was nice having them in town and staying with us. This is another reason I love have my own house. We all went out to eat a couple times and just enjoyed relaxing evenings with everyone. Then Thanksgiving day we drove to Burkburnett/Wichita Falls to be with my family. Our families are so OPPOSITE. That isn't a bad thing I'm just sayin. My dad had us over and all the guys eat out in the garage watching football and the girls eat inside and chit chat. I think this was my first year celebrating Thanksgiving with my dad. Usually we would have it with my mom and then Christmas Eve with my dad, but my mom worked and my dad asked us over. We had to drive back that same day because we all know that working retail you never really get to enjoy any holiday. So that wraps it up hopefully I will have pics for my next post I am a little on the lazy side lately!!

I know weird title for what I am about to tell you all. For those of you who don't know I am no longer working at Buckle anymore and started working at a tanning salon from 5:45am to 1pm. I love the hours because Sean and I get to be with Lylah most of the day. We try to work our schedules, ok Sean tries to work his schedule so that she doesn't have to be at the sitter's house very often. Last Monday I was working alone as I usually do until about 11am and then another employee comes in for the last two hours I am there. I had a girl customer come in and say " my account is all messed up I know I owe a lot, but I am going to go to the bathroon will you look it over and I will be right back." I do of course and I thought she was a little shady so I stayed up front where all the lotions were because I didn't want her to steal any. On a side note some of our lotions cost up to $140. Also note that our office is only about 5 ft behind where I was standing. I look over everything and she comes back up front and I tell her there is really nothing I can do, but she can come back when our manager is there. She seemed ok with that answer and left. That was at 10:45 at 11:45 I took a break in the office to realize that my purse was missing. I asked the other employee to look to make sure I wasn't going crazy and I wasn't. So I went searching our store for and and I found it in a cabinet across from the girl's bathroom. My wallet, keys, and spare car key were all missing. I immediately called Sean and asked him to go home because she knows where we live and has all my keys. He left work, went to Target to get all new locks for our house and headed home. I went to the bank to freeze all my accounts and cards, but it was too late she had already spent money. Ok to finish up this long story that could be longer. I had to re-key my car and open new accounts. Come to find out she did it to another one of our stores and came back to ours yesterday to try it again. The police are definitely involved and I hope they catch her. I can't describe the way I feel inside. I am angry, sad, but blessed to know that it could be a lot worse. I have actually learned a lot from this experience, but that will have to be in another post. You really can't trust anyone these days and it stinks.
