A Visit to St. Nick AND we pick out our tree!

Today we went to the mall to SEE SANTA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Alaric was so excited. He jumped right up on Santa's lap and started talking...about what he wanted, about firetrucks, his best friend Reagan, you name it! He's an ol' pro!
Mara on the other hand, not so into Santa! This is a snapshot but the professional one is just as impressive- Alaric smiling away while Sissy screamed- LOVE IT!!!
She warmed up to Santa though when he gave her a candy cane-thanks Santa!
Then off to find the perfect tree...two kids, cold weather, drizzling rain and too many puddles to jump in....we found THE tree is 2 minutes! DOne!

After dinner at Panera, headed home and put the tree in it's place. We'll trim it on Saturday night!
Here is a picture ( of a picture- sorry about the glare) of the kids' Christmas photo! It turned out great- we love it!
