Lessons learned...

Not sure when it exactly happens but sometime around Thanksgiving I blinked and I was suddenly surrounded by and in the FULL BLOWN Christmas season.

I shouldn't be but am always amazed at how quickly time goes by... I feel like it was just yesterday we were enjoying the warmth of the summer and now we are hunkered down ready for the snow to come. Any day now, my son inherited my patience...
There is something about this time of year that is special. I believe it to be a combination... We spend time celebrating our Savior, we get to spend extra time with all of the people we love the most, and CHILDREN. Children make this time of year extra special. It is magical for them which makes it magical to me.
Just like anything in life there is the flip side. This time of year also comes with sadness. It is a time when I miss the ones who have left us. I guess I should re-phrase this a little bit. I miss them all daily but the holidays seem to bring out how much a little more...

Santa Photos

WHAT a fantastic afternoon spent with Santa. 

Mason had a lot to share.  He went over his list twice and asked if he was good enough to get toys?!?!?!

He is getting SOOO big and his hair... He sure loves a comb over!
Miss Kendall struggled. She was not a fan and did not want to participate in these photos. I tried to help out but it didn't make a difference.  At least everyone else looks happy!
And then it was just Mason - Again in deep conversations with Santa.  Third times a charm with Kendall. Come to find out she just didn't want Mrs. Claus in the photo! (Not really - this is when the photographer got out some silly looking animal and made some funny noises - no complaints here it worked)
SUCCESS. Or at least this is the best we are going to get.  Next up RY and Hudson! LIKE PRO'S!
This one is my favorite. All the Grandma's with the kids.
time to say Goodbye. Guess who decides to warm up to Santa... KENDALL!
We missed Greg (he was Santa)!

 Just kidding. He was on shift …
