'Tis the season ... ?

Guess who we went to see last week?

Megan was ready to go as soon as it was our turn. She asked Santa for a drum set.

As soon as Bevin realized that this was her chance to ask for something for Christmas, she quickly got in on the act. Her request? A purple motorcycle and a purple helmet. Ummmm ...

Finally, Sean warmed up to the idea of sitting on Santa's lap. (Props to Santa, by the way, for fitting 3 kids on his lap!!) He asked Santa for a "bobot" (a hot word around here since Halloween). When Santa asked what kind of robot, Sean's simple reply was "blue".

I guess I could sound really old and say that Christmas comes earlier and earlier every year, but instead I'll choose to embrace the excitement and spirit of the Christmas season. It's been in the 20's and 30's here in NC, so why not?? It sure is beginning to look a lot like Christmas!


  1. Great photos! I wish my kids were still that age sometimes. Christmas is magical.

  2. I can't wait to take Punkie to see Santa this year. Let's hope she doesn't freak out like last year. LOL.
