Santa Claus is coming to town...

Every year Santa visits our small town with all his reindeer and a few other friends- Barney and Shrek joined him this year.....(: They arrive on a decorated trailer being pulled by a bright red semi-truck. It looks really neat and cool coming down the road all decorated and lit up.

We had Sawyer all pumped up at home to see Santa and he kept saying, "Ho Ho Ho." I knew he had no idea what he was going to go see, but he knew it would be exciting by the way the other two were acting! As soon as he saw Santa he waved a little and got really stiff in my arms as soon as Santa approached him and said hi-then he wasn't too sure about that man in the red suit with lots of white hair (:
They also play really loud, fun Christmas music and everyone dances around-the kids get really into it and dance with all the characters. This is Jonnie's favorite part and I laugh every year when he just walks up to the reindeer and starts dancing-it is so cute! We have pictures of him doing this when he was 2.

Now here is a cute Christmas card! (:

Grandma with her grandsons checking out the cool semi-truck!

After the truck leaves, the kids are able to go in the community center and tell Santa and Mrs. Claus what they want for Christmas, have cookies and hot chocolate, and receive a bag of goodies! A fun time was had by all! I love that we have snow-it makes everything more festive!

Ho Ho Ho, Merry Christmas!

Sounds like lots of fun for everyone. What great Christmas memories. Those "Santas" are a little scary!

Oh, what wonderful memories your little ones are going to have! I just love the picture with them in the sled. I will have that one in the coffee shop this week!

I feel sorry for Santa because Sawyer was afraid of me for awhile and its not fun:(
