Santa

We had a very fun family day today; we went to see Santa! Honestly, there are much better Santa's but...they got the experience, right?! Mike was pretty dissappointed with the him, we had to tell Maddie to tell him what she wanted because he didn't even ask-isn't that the point of sitting on his lap? The only thing I heard him ask and say was, "Is your camera ready?" and "Make sure you take a coloring book." Interesting old man, but it was fun to see the kids with him. Maddie looked exactly like she does in the pics the whole time kind of like, "Why am I sitting on this strange man's lap?" and Patrick just wanted to stare-like the pic as well. We didn't get one of just Patrick and him because I felt rushed and like he just wanted to move on. Sorry to sound so negative-it really was still fun and we might even do it again, elsewhere with a new Santa. We then had pizza, or "pizzee" as Maddie calls it and then got the kiddos some new shoes. We love these days when we get to spend so much time together.

Guess what I want for Christmas?? (It envolves a mooooving truck!!)
I don't think it's possible for the kids to get even cuter....

Maybe someone should remind Santa he needs a list to ck twice. Thats so crazy he forgot to ask the kids what they wanted. They sure do look cute in the pics though. What a great experience for them and such fun family time.

So cute! I would be negative too - can't people just do exactly what we want? Goodness. :) Patrick is still a handsome little man by the way - even if he is bald! (I think there is still more there than Carter boy has!) I'm glad you guys had a great day! Talk to you soon...

Santa does not look very jolly! He looks like he is getting a mug shot.
