The man in the red suit

Santa visit blog
(Taken yesterday afternoon).

There's been a great deal of anticipation
and talk about Santa around here lately.

Last year was our first visit
and it definitely was a huge success.
Previous to that they both were a little afraid to speak to him
and get up so close.

I think the best part for me is to listen in on the conversation...
whether they've been behaving well and 
what they'd like for Christmas.
Thankfully Santa's got it covered...Will is asking for a 'Ninja Castle'
and Grace a 'Holiday Barbie.'
I love seeing Christmas through their eyes, I know this stage doesn't last long
and it's just precious to me!

We have a busy week ahead with final dance practices, the rehearsal for the Christmas recital
next week and their school has it's Holiday program on Friday.
I still have my Christmas cards to address and send.

I love that all three of them look so engaged in their conversation. These are beautiful Gail.


PS. Yesterday I was thinking of your lots. I had one of my Gail bracelets on.

Love these! I agree with Lea that the expressions on their faces is priceless. I have to also add that the lighting was perfect. Most of the malls in our area are so dark without any natural lighting.

Sounds like your week ahead is similar to mine. Busy, busy, busy. I finally took pics of my two for my Christmas card. Not exactly how I planned it, but they will work.
