Upon arrival...don't let the sweetness fool you...
I have no idea what caused this to occur! Serious case of the sillies!
Madness!! in all fairness... I have never seen my children so out of control while in public... I'm chalking this one up to the anticipation of Santa's arrival... Puddin was beside herself with excitement and I think she actually instigated most of the above silliness.
Finally- the big man himself!!! She raced through the crowd and grabbed a hold of him like he was her long lost grandpa! We had to make her leave him alone so other kids could see him!
On the other hand... Just the sight of him caused this reaction from the Monkeys...
anxiously awaiting her turn (the line is really long when you come to visit a multiples group!)
First thing she does is hug him.... So sweet! Santa seemed to have missed her too!
She had just shown him the picture she drew for him of Santa, Mrs. Clause, Rudolph and herself at the North Pole. He was telling her he would be sure to hang it on his refrigerator when he got home at the the NP.
Telling Santa her whole Christmas wish list!! (She was very specific!)
Precious Puddin & Santa!!
Sweet smiles from Daisy and Bud
Hubby...praying for the screaming to stop!
This shot will have to do!
After a couple of hours at this event we loaded up the kids and headed across town to Cannonsburgh. One of our favorite places to play that I have blogged about here and here. Anyway, they were having a Cannonsburgh Christmas that we enjoy going to. We mostly go to see the Shepherd and his sheep and some really great apple cider but we also saw Santa- again! In fact, Puddin seemed a little perplexed at this one... he wasn't as authentic as the one she had seen an hour before!
Hubby took control of the camera so Mommy could be in some pics...
I love these 3 babies!
Puddin with the Cannonsburgh Santa... I didn't actually witness this exchange as I was outside in the cold with the babies and Monkeys. The boys became like statues and refused to enter the cabin!
My sweet trio!
