Santa Baby

Every year we take the girls to the local mall (Wiregrass Commons in Dothan, Alabama) to visit Santa. True to exactly what happened with Abby, the girls first visit with him (last year in 2010), they were fine...then the reality of going to a strange bearded man hit them and this year, they followed their big sister's tradition of not liking this tradition at all. If they continue to be just like Abby, we will have a couple more events like this before they realize that "Santa's Helper" is a nice guy! (Our girls know that this guy isn't the real Santa - but he was chosen by the real Santa to be one of his helpers...he reports each night back to the North Pole to let the real Santa and his elves know what the children asked for!) So, without further ado....our Christmas picture!

P.S. A big shout out to Courtney Nowell for helping make this day possible. She and her husband, Derek, are more than friends to us...and more than honorary aunts and uncles to the girls. In fact, we jokingly call them the girls godparents. Today Courtney went with us to the mall and after the Santa visit, lunch, the merry-go-round, the children's choir performances and shopping, she was the only one that was sane at the end of the day! Thanks Court!
