We went to see santa at frys last week for a free night with santa party. It was fun and close and free:)Owen freaked out of course and didnt want to be close at all to the jolly man. He is pushing away from me in this picture I had to laugh. It was the saddest looking santa I have ever seen. You could totally see the beard strap on his cheek and his black eyebrows it was hilarious. In my head I was picturing Ralphie in the bunny costume totally tortured by wearing it and thinking Caden is probably feeling the same way about "santa". Does anyone else feel stupid or bad about duping your older children into believing?? I mean when do we tell them? Caden already asks too many questions and I hate lying. I finally told him the tooth fairy wasnt real with this last tooth he lost. I could see the wheels turning in his head but he didnt ask about santa. except how was santa at every frys Mom?? Arggh anyways I think 8 years old is the magic year to know what all us grown ups know. So Olivia was Mary and she was beautiful and perfect:) Gma and Gpa Merrill came to watch and that was great to have them around for this stuff finally. The countdown is on 5 days left......

This is what I tell my kids about all the Santa's at the mall and grocery stores. They are like his soldiers or helpers. Santa is busy getting everything ready for Christmas Eve. So he sends out his helpers to find out what all the little kids want. Then they tell Santa. Clayton seems to think this explanation is good.

Love your pictures. Have you checked out my blog?
