Santa!!!

I was SOOO excited to take the boys to see Santa for the first time!!! I was disappointed last weekend when we were all sick & couldn't go to the Santa visit we had originally planned or the Mothers of Multiples Christmas party :o(
I thought for sure Donna would not want to go to the mall the weekend before Christmas & on her only day off before Christmas. She first went online to see if there was any other place we could take them to see Santa but everyone/place had already had their Santa visits. She did however find online that the mall offered a "speedpass" to those who bought online. So we bought our package online plus the "speedpass" & headed off to the mall.
The line to see Santa was CRAZY!!! We had our passes so we went to a different line of only 3 people :o) We planned very strategically when to take the boys, after their morning nap, we fed them quickly, dressed them in their Santa outfits & quickly ran to the mall hoping to get in before it was time for their afternoon naps. It came very close, I had to hold Caden to keep him awake, he was dozing in the stroller. We got in on Santa's lap just in the knick of time & right afterwards, all three boys were out.

Kellan, Garren & Caden
We cruised around the mall for a little while letting the boys nap in the stroller. It really wasn't as crowded as I thought it would be. I wanted to get a "baby's first Christmas" ornament, we found a fun place that had all kinds of ornaments to choose from that had families with different numbers of babies/children. They had one that was a pea pod but they only had ones with 2 babies left, so we went with another one...


Well yesterday a package arrived from some very special friends & all I can say is great minds must think alike because they sent us these...


Thank you Aunt Pat & Aunt Rosemary
