Breakfast with Santa

On Saturday morning I took the kids to breakfast with Santa at my mom's school. They were both very excited about seeing him and telling him what they want, that is until we walked in. I do not have a picture of Eli with Santa since he was about 6 months old (and he's now 4 1/2). He has not sat on his lap since then. Last year he was excited and was going to sit on Santa's lap until it was our turn. Then, nope, he walked right by him and stood with us while Hannah had her picture taken. We had talked with Eli about this for a week and a half pumping him up and was ready until he saw him. Here is the Santa picture for this year.

We were talking last night and we are going to try again when Lucas gets here. Eli said this morning that he didn't sit on Santa's lap because he wanted to wait until Lucas was in it. I think that's really sweet, but forgive me for not believing him. In a few weeks we might have a picture that will include 2 of the 3 children, but I'm just not confident in having one with all 3 of them.

At least he had fun playing games and getting tattoos and making reindeer food. Hannah did all of that and she also made a picture frame and a crown. She went to bed Saturday with the crown and woke up to a glitter filled bed Sunday morning. Note to self, glitter is not fun to clean up.

We dropped Maggie off at Doggie Daycare on Saturday morning because Cody was on carpet cleaning duty and getting Christmas stuff from the attic. God bless him, the tree was ready to decorate when we got home. Did I mention the carpets were cleaned because we have new furniture coming on Friday? Woohoo!!!! I can't wait to sit my butt on the new chocolate brown leather couch and chair and a half. Anyway, here are a few pictures of Maggie and the kids on the way home Saturday night.

Maggie was trying to sleep because daycare just wears a puppy out :)
