Merry Christmas!

The plan for tonight as told to us by our boys is this, "We will tiptoe quietly down the stairs (Titus, we will help you get out of your crib). We will hide under the table and watch for Santa to come and eat the cookies and then go back up the chimney. Mom & Dad, would you like to hide with us?"

It has to be one of the sweetest invitations ever. The irony of it all is that we have never really "done Santa" and have always told them he is pretend. :) Nevertheless, they believe and we have decided to let them. So, we will put out the cookies, milk, and carrots, and we will write a little note from Santa to leave out for them. Who knows, you may even find us crouching underneath the table come midnight tonight. :) Oh to be young again.

Hard to believe we actually got not one but two pictures with all three smiling. :) And even Pippi got in on the action - she loves being held!

From our family to yours, We wish you a very blessed and Merry Christmas! You have blessed us in so many ways as we have gone through transition and challenge and joy this year!

Adorable picture, and adorable idea... Did it happen? Did someone help Titus out of his crib to join the fun? I think it's cute that they thought up this plan. :)

We have never pushed the Santa thing, and Adam yesterday told me that Santa was pretend; both boys have said there are lots of Santas (hence the different ones at the mall and other places), but it's fun all the same.

Merry Christmas, my dear friend.
