It is time again for that grand Atlantan tradition of riding The Pink Pig at Christmastime! I do believe Amelia Kate has been more excited to see Priscilla than the man in the red suit. (Shhh, don't tell him, though.)
Now, at some point, I intend to find Jack something special for him at Christmas that isn't so pink and glitzy. I just didn't want to deprive him of the right to grow up and say he rode the Pink Pig. (Because I am so sure that will be of grave importance to him one day...haha!) Soon enough, this will be a tradition for me and Amelia.
Amelia was so completely taken with Miss Priscilla. As soon as she saw her, she made a beeline for her and hiked a leg to get onto Priscilla's lap without even asking. I tried to stop her so I could at least ask if that was okay, but Priscilla and her "handlers" assured me it was fine. Before hopping off Priscilla's lap (reluctantly hopping off, mind you), Amelia hugged Priscilla's neck and told her she was beautiful and she loved her. It is very rare that I see Amelia so genuinely taken with something, so it was precious to me. :o)

And what a cute end it is... ;o)
