About a month ago in this post I talked about how we were going to try and slow down this holiday season, rather than pack our weekends full of events and parties like we have in the past. I wanted to spend this month doing simple, fun activities as a family. I’m pretty bummed that Christmas is almost here already! Yes, I love Christmas, but the month leading up to it is my favorite part of the year. I’m not ready for it to be over!
One of the things we look forward to doing each year is Santa’s Village. This year we went on a Monday night and we got there shortly after it opened. It wasn’t nearly as crowded and the line for Santa was not near as long as it has been in the past. We weren’t sure how Audrey would react to Santa, but we were pleasantly surprised. As soon as she saw him she nearly jumped out of her shoes, she was so excited! She stood there bouncing up and down saying “Santa! Santa!” until it was her turn. Once she got on his lap she was a little more apprehensive, but she didn’t cry. She even talked to him!

|This girl is too much|
|This is the best picture I could get. Raley wouldn’t look at me bacause of the flash. Oh well|

|See her poor right eye? She HATED the eye drops. It was the biggest struggle to get those in BID for a week!|
