Santa Claus is coming to town

We got our first major storm of the year. Anthony thought it was the greatest thing ever. He took off his gloves and hat and of course started eating the snow.

I decided to take Anthony to the mall to see Santa arrive in a helicopter. I had been trying to explain to him that Santa rides a sleigh that his reindeer pull, but for fun he was going to ride in the helicopter that day. After seeing Santa arrive by helicopter at the mall, a few days later we were watching Thomas the train (pretty lame show... I'm not sure why kids like it so much). In the Christmas episode how did Santa arrive? You guessed it, by helicopter. What are we teaching our kids these days?
Waiting for Santa to arrive. I told Anthony to put his arm around his friend Reed and this is what we got.

Riding the train around the Santa exhibit was certainly the highlight for Anthony.
When Santa asked him what he wanted for Christmas Anthony shouted, "an elephant." Yeah- not sure where that one came from. He never once has talked about elephants.

Much overdue post

Well, since Christmas is almost here I am too embarrassed to post Halloween pictures and so I'll post some baby blessing pictures along with our Christmas pictures that Michael's sister Meagan shot for us. She did a great job.
