I worked the night of Thanksgiving, as usual. Then stayed up a few more hours and joined the rest of the crazies for some Black Friday shopping. When I got home Gage and the Kids were just getting ready to put of the Christmas tree. The kids loved helping dad "build a tree." This was lots of fun and really kicked of the Christmas season at our house.We meet Santa a few time this year... once at the ward Christmas party, then at the mall too! Trevin was so excited, he stood patiently in line with the rest of the kids and then jumped right onto Santa's lap. To our surprise he had a wish list for Santa. "Thomas the train, a gray remote and cranky."
Cheyenne on the other hand was very excited to stand in the line to see "Jesus" but wasn't very fond of sitting on his lap.
The second time meeting Santa went a lot smoother. You can't tell in the picture but she was really excited to sit on his lap and even asked for "books."
Trevin convinced Santa to come watch the reindeer show with him for a couple minutes. After that Trevin thought Santa was awesome!
