We got the kids all dressed up to go see Santa today! We went today hoping the snow would have kept people away from the mall... silly us. It was packed and we waited for a good spell. But Avery was awesome and just danced and sang and kept herself- and some other line waiters- thoroughly entertained. It helped that she was wearing clicky shoes and a dress that twirls up when she spins!

We were so proud because she actually talked to Santa this year!!! She went right up to him, sat next to him, and chatted away! Last year she stood near Santa, but wouldn't talk to him! Ah, progress! Here's Avery waiting in line. She really, really, really wanted to wear this dress for her Christmas program. A little too formal for school! I finally convinced her that we didn't have the right tights for the dress, so it couldn't be worn. Phew. (never fear...we got the 'right' tights)
Here's Oliver waiting in line. He's such a good boy! He was smilin' at daddy here... Some more of the Christmas kids...Here they are after seeing Santa gettin' a little sister/brother time!
We made it home- very slowly through the snow- and Oliver was hungry. Jeff asked to feed him (and not get Avery ready for bed!) so he could be still and watch the Colts on the computer. After a couple of minutes, our mini Colts fan started to notice something great was happening and this was the result....

    Jeff, your kids are so cute! Your mom would be so proud of them and of you! I enjoy reading about them and seeing the pictures!
