Santa Claus Visit!

We made our annual visit to the mall to visit Santa Claus along with the Pirate & the Mermaid. The last two visits, The Princess cried (well, last year she screamed so much Santa said, "Please take her. I can't take it anymore.") All the grownups were wondering what the outcome would be. The Princess and I talked a lot about going to see Santa and talking - not crying. She promised she would be happy.
I tried to get a good picture of the Superstar and the Princess before we left.
We got to the mall and (YAY!) there was no wait. The Princess walked right up to Santa and started talking about what she wanted for Christmas. HURRAY!! I love this picture (above) because all the other kids are happily waiting for the Princess to go first. They were probably just relieved that she wasn't screaming.The Superstar had a turn to talk to Santa too.And then we tried to get good pictures of all 4 kids together.

Here they are, post visit, hamming it up in the mall. What fun!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Happy Thanksgiving to all!

It can be very easy to get bogged down by all the "stuff" that happens along the way. Especially when if feels like you are constantly walking behind the elephant and getting constantly dumped on. There have been a lot of "things" going on in our lives lately. But today is a day to put the junk behind and think of things we are thankful for. At lunch/dinner today, the Superstar said he was thankful for his family and the princess said she was thankful for McGregor. As parents, we are thankful for both of them as well as our close family and friends who help us get through all the "stuff". THANK YOU!
