Be Still My Heart

Hampton's first "program."  The sweetest, cutest little sheep I've ever seen.  At one point, I'm certain I heard him singing.  He did a few of the hand motions and even gave me a small wave back (my heart could have burst out of my chest :)  Then he stuck his hands in his pocket and that is where they stayed the rest of the time.  So proud!

Meeting Santa Claus

Hampton was so excited....

but when it came time to sit on his lap, he got a little shy.  Anne Lowry likes Santa, but the girl does not like mascots or anything of the such so I knew she was not going to be a fan of Santa in the flesh :)  She actually tolerated him better than I thought she would and didn't scream....she just sat frozen like this....

Then we decorated and ate cookies while Hampton chased two girls from his class :-)

Towards the end of the night....we tried again and it went a little better!

So what did they ask for?

Hampton is asking for a "pirate telescope" and a flute/recorder.  

Anne Lowry is asking for a "pink car."

I think we got it pretty easy!  For a while every time I (or somebody else) asked them what they wanted Santa to bring them they asked for something different.  Usually what they had just seen on TV or played with at somebody else's house.   However, both have consistently asked for the above for several weeks straight.  I'm nervous they are going to start asking for something new two days before Christmas.  The only thing Santa lacks to get is the "pink car."  I persuaded her that she just wants a small pink car.

Trimming the Tree

Christmas Card Attempt #1

This was actually our easiest year yet trying to get a picture of the two of them together.  Do not misunderstand that for fun, just easier!  

This first picture was our runner up!  I'm saving the winner for your mailbox :-)  Here's a hint, same outfit--different setting (although similar)--no tree!!

It is definitely the most wonderful, magical time of the year!  And this 3 and 2 year old make it a million times more....

 (anybody else impressed with all this blogging besides me?!?)
