santa not scary. . he a nice guy!

i love this tradition of seeing santa every year. . and it has even gotten better with cute little girl Christmas dresses and tiny red shoes! we knew from experience that two years old is the hardest age so the whole family has been prepping Lucia for awhile. well it worked she ran up to Santa and said loud and clear "you not scary santa, you are a nice guy!" and jumped up on his lap! when santa asked what each of them wanted for Christmas here is what they said. {

our kids do not know there is such a thing as a "santa list." we have them convinced that santa brings one gift. so they spend all year figuring out what the one special thing they are going to ask for is. . . }

Keagan - webkin (he asked us on the way down if he could ask santa for a trip to the Mediterranean ocean) - he is fascinated with oceans around the world. we told it was not realistic and santa doesn't give trips to the ocean.

Kinkade - electronic scooter

Lucia - a lollipop

ps. . on the way home i was thinking what a perfect day it had been - no meltdowns . . all four kids smiling in the santa picture. . fun church rehearsal prior to santa pic! i was feeling even a little bit proud that we are figuring this four kids thing out. . .. WELL. . . . we proceeded to run out of gas in the minivan in the middle of one of the busiest most narrow roads in Spokane. thank goodness the nicest people on the planet stopped pushed our van out of the middle of the road. then took aaron to get a can of gas while i waited with the kids on the side of the road. nothing like running out of gas to keep you humble:)

Can't say that our experience went that well tonight!! Oh well!! Love the pic with Santa! It's hilarious that Lucia just wants a lollipop! I know Gillian would be perfectly content to just get a lollipop on Christmas morning too! 2 year olds are awesome!

I just love when we are humbled! I had a VERY humbling day yesterday!!!
