Christmas 2017

Christmas is in full swing at our house. It’s one of my favorite holidays and so fun because the kids still believe in Santa wholeheartedly. Although I am afraid Emma’s days of believing are probably numbered. A conversation we had recently:

(Driving to Westminster Mall to get Santa pics taken)
Emma: Oh I thought we were going to see Santa at Bella Terra….that’s where we saw him before!
Me: The Santa here is better
Emma: What? The Santa here is better? That means there are TWO SANTAS?!?!?!?!?!?
Me: (ughghghghghghghg)
Me: Oh noooooo….I mean the background for the pictures is better over here! In fact, Santa is driving over here from Bella Terra right now!

Luckily, I think she bought it :)

And it was so cute, we showed up in line before they opened so Santa hadn’t arrived yet. When he finally appeared, Max raised his tiny little fist and said “YES!!!!!” in the CUTEST VOICE EVER jumping up and down with excitement. Sometimes I wish I could just always record my life so I can capture these magical moments when my kids do stuff like this (says every parent right???).

(Yes, Max is wearing his Darth Vader pajamas because this is the only acceptable attire to meet Santa in even though I had a very nice and expensive JCrewcuts sweater for him to wear!!! He is going through a phase where he refuses to wear long sleeves, anything with buttons, anything that is not 100% cotton, or anything that is not Star Wars related. Oh Max.)

Time is just going too fast and I can see them growing up right in front of my eyes. Soon they will be surly teenagers who don’t even want to put up a Christmas tree or think going to see Christmas lights is the most exciting thing ever. I know this because I was that surly teenager at one point. I look back and I can’t believe I went through such a Grinch period about Christmas (sorry Mom!). You would never know if you walked into my house now. We have a REAL XMAS tree and decorating it is one of my favorite things to do with the kids. We listen to Christmas music 24/7 and have been for weeks (maybe even before Thanksgiving? lol…yes I am one
of THOSE people). And I love all the lights and inflatable Xmas decorations. The more tacky they are, the BETTER. We have not one, not two, but THREE Christmas advent calendars going at the same time.

Kids change your perspective in the best way, don’t they? <3
