Santa 2015

We surprised the kids the other day with their "Christmas time" for that day being a visit to see Santa.
We had talked about writing and mailing Santa a letter but I asked Abigail if she wanted to write one that morning and hand deliver it.  She was super excited about this.  When I asked her what she wanted from Santa (she could ask for anything) this is what she wrote:  Santa, Can you bring me hair pretties and new gloves.  Love, Abigail
Ethan and Abigail were so very excited to see Santa.  The three of them read Abigail's note together.  Then Santa turned to Ethan and asked what he wanted.  He got really quiet and said, "A Toy."  Santa laughed and said, "I can manage that."
Then we gave Santa Naomi for that one perfect picture and instead we managed to get a classic picture instead.  Naomi wasn't too excited about telling Santa anything at all.
But the other two, well they were mighty excited to love on this special man for the few minutes we had.  Ethan loves Santa so much.

Precious! the kids look so cute in their sharp christmas clothes. And Santa's weary expression while holding unhappy Naomi is funny, too. The requests are so dear. Makes a Mama's heart glad to have such sweet, innocent wants.

Let Me Tell You A Story

Years ago my mother bought the kids a bear that reads them The Night Before Christmas.   It is a favorite every year to everyone, but Josh....
