Visit with Santa

This is as close as Lauren would get to the big guy. She was so excited to go see Santa but she got so shy and could only nod her head to answer questions.    He was really sweet and talked to her and made her comfortable.  Santa tried everything to get her to take a picture with him. This was as close as she would get.  I am only an arms length away taking the picture.  Santa leaned way over to make it in the picture.  
Merry Christmas

Almost Christmas

It's almost Christmas!  Our elf, Benny, has been making the most of his time at our house.  Jake took a look at the game and said that Benny was really good at Monopoly and winning.  

My kiddos have been waiting patiently to decorate their gingerbread house.
