Christmas Happenings

Wow! Tomorrow is Christmas Eve. Crazy, huh? What's even more wild is that we are almost a decade into the 2000's.

I've always loved Christmas. And now, having 3 little boys makes it extra special and fun. Here are some fun things we've been doing these days.

Santa Visit:

We met C's preschool class at the mall to have a picture taken with Santa. At first, C did not want to go near Santa. But after seeing some of his classmates get their picture taken with the jolly fellow, he felt more at ease.

C With Santa

L took a little more convincing to get near Santa. He cautiously approached Santa to say thank you for the jingle bells he had received. Then, Santa was nice enough to gently guide L near him for a picture opportunity.

Hmmm, I don't think L is too sure about this Santa character.

C's teacher, classmates and some siblings with Santa:

We also had fun building a gingerbread house this past Sunday. Well, by 'we' I mean my husband and the boys. (I stood by with the camera.)

Yay for Christmas! And great job with the pictures, Ana!! And don't you just love Ms. Campbell and the going to see Santa as a class idea? Charlie was in her class last year and while we missed that day, I thought it was such a great idea!! The gingerbread house looks awesome too! Merry Christmas!
