Tacky Christmas

Tonight we had the Youth Christmas Party. It was a progressive dinner and we helped Robby and Robbin with dessert. Since the kids wouldn't be arriving until late, we decided to have dinner together before and do Tacky Christmas.

It was so much fun!

Getting Ready!

Christmas Decorations 2012

We are super excited about Christmas this year! Will is gets so happy to turn on the Christmas lights evey night. It is so fun!

I still love putting out a lot of decorations. It is so much work, but I love the way the house looks.

Will Visits Santa

We took Will to see Santa for the very first time ever.  We decided to go to Bass Pro Shop because it was free and if he had a meltdown, we wouldn't be out any money.

When we got there, Will was so excited.  He made Clay and I hold his hand and he walked right up to Santa.  Santa asked him what he wanted for Christmas and he said "a bicycle and some other toys."  Santa tried to get Will to sit in his lap, but Will didn't want to.  Will also didn't want Clay and I to leave him so he could have his picture made.  This resulted in Will's very first picture with Santa being a family picture!

After we saw Santa, we rode the carousel, look at the 4-wheelers, and took his picture in front of a huge tree.

I think it was very successful trip considering he wouldn't even look at Santa last year.

Letter from Santa

Will got a very special letter today. Santa wrote him a letter telling him that he had been a good boy this year.

Will was so excited!!

Thanks to Robbin for telling Santa that Will would love a letter from him!
