It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas...

We had to run to the mall yesterday to get Ava some new shoes, so I thought we'd make our annual Santa visit while we were there.
He was awesome.
There was no one else in line...and he spent a good 20 minutes with them!  This is an awesome age for Christmas this year...7, 5, and 3...It is all so magical to them and they talked and talked!
Ava says she gave him six hugs! (I think it was even more:)

Children are God's best gift. -Psalm 127:3

Ashton wrote him this on the way home...:)

I also got suckered into bringing this guy home...The kids have named him Alfie.
Look what he did last night!  That rascal stole my lipstick and left the kids a message in a mirror.

Fun times, blessed memories...
So very thankful to be able to share this time with them...
And since Logan is 11 this year and "knows" (as he says), he is my little sidekick...helping me think of fun things for Alfie to do...
Of course we never forget why celebrate this season of Advent and Christmas...it is all magical!

So, are you in the Christmas spirit yet? ;)

This post made my whole heart melt! I miss having littles to share the magic with. But Paul & I manage to believe in magic all by ourselves! It warms my heart to see your family love. I hope to see you all soon! xoxo
