Santa's Arrival


The day after Thanksgiving we went to the mall parking lot to watch Santa arrive in a helicoptor. The kids were in heaven. All my kids still believe in Santa, but lately Reid keeps asking questions like "Mommy, can Santa's reindeer really fly?" I say "Yes Reid." Then he says "How?" I say "They are magic." He says "There is no such thing as magic reindeer." It makes me sad that he is figuring it all out. He still keeps wanting to go to the mall to sit on Santa's lap, because he keeps remembering things he forgot to tell Santa he wants. He must still believe.Here are the kids as we waited for Santa.
Alvin is 8 months old now. This week his top gums in front are so swollen and he has been miserable(and so have I) He has been very fussy. I can't wait till his teeth come through.


Here comes Santa. I kept taking pictures of the helicopter coming, but I should have taken pictures of the children's faces. You can imagine how excited they were.

He walked all around to see the whole crowd.

Here they are in the Mall telling Santa what they want for Christmas. At least Reid told. Clara is pretty scared of Santa. I have no idea what to get for Reid, because he tells Santa something different everytime. We keep going back to sit on his lap.

Was that at University Mall? Did you think that Santa was a little creepy? I wasn/t so impressed...

Wow - I bet the kids were loving that! Very exciting! Alvin takes the cutest pictures. They are all so adorable. Sorry about Alvin's teething - that can't be fun for both of you. :(

I like how Clara is wearing Alvin's hat.
