Visit with Santa!

We took the kids to see Santa on Wednesday! It was great! This is the first year that Andrew would "walk" up to see him! He walked up with his arms open wide and crawled right up on his lap! It was wonderful to see! The girls asked for knitting kits and Andrew asked for a car! (hopefully a toy car!)

Christmas Craft Project

Hannah and Julia wanted to make our own Advent Calendar this year. They thought it would be fun to do together! They had this idea in their heads so I gathered materials together and we spent all day a few weeks ago from 11-6pm working on this and it still wasnt done!! So I finished it the next night! It was done by December 1st! Even Andrew got in on the action!

This is in the beginning of the month!

This is on Christmas morning!

***A Warning: Parents who have small children who read, make sure they don't***
Now that that is out of the way, here is my story of the night. Tonight, the kids and I were at the dinner table eating our dinner. Here is our conversation!
Hannah: I don't believe in Santa!
Me: What, why?
Hannah: I have never ever seen the North Pole on a map.
Me: Why sure there is a North Pole.
Hannah: Then show me.
Me: After dinner!
So after dinner, I signed onto the computer and showed her the North Pole on the map that I found.
Hannah: There is no land there, its just water.
Me: No Hannah, let me find another map.
Thank God I found this:
Hannah: WOW, I certainly believe now!!!
