Santa And Mrs. Clause

We got to see Santa and Mrs. Clause. My dad had a Christmas Party at his house last weekend where Santa and Mrs. Clause made a "surprise appearance"! They read the kids a book and then handed out toys for all the kids. Ryan was a little baby last Christmas where he didn't remember Santa, so much to my surprise (yeah right) he didn't like Santa at all this year. He cried as Craig was walking up to see him and then screamed more as he got put on Santa's lap. Oh well hopefully next year he'll like more :-) Riley was thrilled to see Santa (had nothing to do with the big sack of toys he brought in). Riley sat on his lap like a cue boy and told him what he wanted and took a picture. After we all meet Santa we had hot chocolate and Krispy Kreme Donuts! It was a great time. Thanks Dad!!!!

Riley got some much needed new shoes!
Ryan got some toy cars!
Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree....

It's Christmas time! I love Christmas time and especially the tree. We get a real Christmas Tree (like everyone should) When I was growing up we would go out and cut a tree down up North. I'm hoping that next year when Ryan is older we can make that a family tradition. We got our tree came home and got our Christmas box out. Put the lights up and then i got to the bottom where the ornaments have always been and there is only 2 ornaments. I'm so mad we can't find the rest of the kids ornaments. I'm pulling my hair out hoping to remember where they are but I'm just at a loss because that's that's the only place they could be. So are tree is a little bear right now but it's the idea that counts? right???? TREE!
