That's how my life has been lately. Hectic. I've been so busy with finishing my Christmas projects that I haven't really gotten a chance to blog much. I finally got my Christmas cards all done and mailed off. Yay! I'm halfway done (I think!) with my Christmas gifts. I still need to finish my baking, though. I can't believe that Christmas is next week! It has totally crept up on me this year.

I did manage to take the kiddos to see Santa. The day before we went, I prepared Gavin for the big day. Last year he didn't sit on Santa's lap, just looked at him from a distance. I was really hoping that he would overcome his shyness towards the big guy this year so I could get a picture of the two of them together. Anyway, I told Gavin all about how Santa brings presents, yadda, yadda, yadda...Well, it seemed to work. He was pretty excited. And the morning of the visit he was all ready to go before Bekah even made it out of bed! I was thinking, yeah! I'll get a good shot this year.


When we got over to the plaza that Santa was at, Gavin didn't want anything to do with him. He didn't even want to LOOK at him. Great. I finally coaxed him into peeking at him, but that was as good as it got. So I took Bekah over to Santa. That worked for about 2 seconds and then she was crying all over the poor guy. At least I was able to get a picture of them together. (even if she is crying all over the place!)

After we took pictures, we walked over to pet Santa's reindeer Rudolph. Once again Gavin decided not to participate. ARGG! Sure does make it hard for mommy to scrapbook properly! Well, I guess there is always next year.
Anyway, I NEED to go get some sleep. I keep dozing off and on while typing this. I'm just so exhausted. I'll get some sleep and then (hopefully) type more tomorrow!
