You better watch out!

December is always such a fun and busy month. We have enjoyed a school choir concert, our ward party, dance parties, and work parties. Dathan's company always has a nice sit down dinner for the adults and then the next week a family party with what has to be the "real" Santa. Not just one of those helpers like at the mall.
Johnny wasn't sure what he wanted and told Santa to surprize him.

Loni told Santa she wanted a Nintendo DS. When he asked what color she said blue. Blue???? Santa just assumed she would want pink. I hope the elves are able make an exchange.Jalen decided not to sit on Santa's lap. So Santa got off of his chair and came and sat on Jalen's lap.
We had a great night. And now we are just waiting for the special day to arrive.
This week I decided not to post any jobs. I just figure we all need to spend our time getting EVERYTHING ready by this Friday. I want to have it ALL done before the kids are out of school. Then maybe next week we can spend out time looking for opportunities to serve and help others.
After all....isn't that what Christmas is all about?

Yup, that is definitely the real Santa. No elf would have gotten off the chair to go over and sit on Jalen's lap. I love it! =)
