Opening our first Christmas presents (we always exchange ornaments when we decorate the Christmas tree, and we gave Grandma and Grandpa a little gift that evening as well).
Our first visit from Chris the Elf (Chris is short for Christmas, and was selected after the names Harry, Super Grover, Mark, and Ho were nixed). Will was excited, Hallie was just confused.
Games, activities, dinner, and chats with Santa at the annual School for Little People Dinner with Santa fundraiser.
Fishing for Sweet Tarts
Will's letter to Santa
Hallie's letter to Santa
Working on marshmallow snowmen
Putting together a bag of reindeer food
Showing off her balloon flower corsage
Attacking other children with his balloon sword
It was an epic battle
Telling Santa what she wants for Christmas
Our first picture of the two of them together on Santa's lap!
(Two years ago, when Will was three and Hallie was eight months, Will refused to sit on
Santa's lap so our picture is of only Hallie. Last year, when Will was four and Hallie
was 20 months, we were moving and never made it to Santa's lap.)
We hope you're having fun getting ready for Christmas!
