Here Comes Santa Clause

We are SUPER excited about Christmas at our house. Every morning when we wake up our 1st job of the day is the turn on our Christmas tree lights. And even better is when it's a free day that we can stay home from school and just play and enjoy our trees and decorations all day!

This was taken when Hayes just woke up from a nap and saw the tree decorated for the 1st time. It literally took 5 seconds before the 1st ornament was broken. She loves to stand at the tree and just slap at it and laugh!

We visited Santa Friday night and Hayes did not quite know what to think of him. She didn't really see or notice him at first.

But then when she actually looked up and saw who was holding her-oh my! She did NOT want this stranger holding her!!! She screamed her little head off! Maybe next year she will like him but for now Santa is just not her thing!

(*Little tip in case you have not already seen can take your camera when you see Santa and take your own picture so you don't have to buy a whole package. We saw Santa at Brookwood Mall and they let you do this, not sure about other malls though.)
Happy Monday!

That it too funny! We went and took Knox this weekend to Bass Pro Shop?? Goodness...we waited over an hour! That place was packed with activities for children. Who knew?? I have never seen so much camo in all my life! We had to turn Knox backwards and "back" him into Santa's lap. He just sat there like a statue. I don't think he even ever saw him. He definitely would have freaked out if he did. Love the Christmas card!! :) So cute!
