Oh Christmas Tree and Santa .....

We went to visit Santa the day after Thanksgiving and as you can see the girls were really excited. Sophie really was so excited until it got to be her turn. She was so terrified that she couldn't even talk to him. She was so proud of herself because she didn't cry! I was really proud of her too! (PS: don't go to the mall. $20 for the stupid picture)





We finally went on got our live tree for the year. We have a little lot by our house that lets you pick your own and you get to cut it down your self! This is our second year doing this and it is a lot of fun. We picked out a cute little blue spruce to put in our basement. I love it because when you walk down the stairs you can sell the tree. It smells so good. Do you love the picture of Bodi doing his best pose of decorating the tree! I think we are officially ready for Christmas now.

Great "posing" Bodi! Your tree looks great-I'll have to come and smell:) Your girls' pic with Santa is hilarious. Atleast they aren't crying!

I'm sorry your Santa picture didn't turn out the way you wanted it to. It's still a cute pict:) I'm sure your house smells wonderful with a real Christmas Tree in it.

Cute sweaters on the girls. And I think the picture with Santa turned out cute. My list still is incomplete too, but we still have 2 weeks....

Sophie looks TERRIFIED! What a great picture though -- it'll be a fun one to look back on in 10 years.

P.S. RC Willey always does free pictures with Santa if you want to give it another shot :)
