More Family Fun...

My sweet husband has been in Europe for the past 2 weeks, so while he was gone, I went to visit my family up north. We took Miss Emery to see Santa for the first time, she was enthralled with his big, white, poofy beard and his shiny glasses... she liked him very much! And she sat and listened as her cousin Owen rattled off everything he needed to share with Santa, which even included a request for "new plastic cups in the kitchen because theirs leak"!
Later that evening Santa made another appearance at the town lighting of the Christmas tree. It was really fun, he showed up in a horse drawn carriage and his elves escorted him to the stage where kids lined up for miles to chat with him. Luckily we didn't have to wait in that line because we already saw him at the mall! Here's a shot of my sister, mom, dad, and me & Emery all bundled up.
At the end of the week my sweet mom drove me and Emery all the way home- she is such a trooper and really goes out of her way for us. She is so selfless and bends over backward to accommodate having us, she makes the times we get to see her so special! Thanks for everything mom! We took a little break on the long ride and Grammie let Emmie play in her trash bag...oops... I mean purse! :)
And when it's all said and done, we have ourselves one tired little elf!

Date was awesome, wish I could get a sub 4 coffee, am I a bad mom if I don't take my kids to see Santa?

I love how cute your Santa pictures are! We wanted to take MIcah to Santa, but I figured he'd probably just scream, so I decided to wait one more year. And then which Santa to go to?
