Getting Ready for Christmas

 We were so excited for Christmas this year.  Christmas is so much fun with a 3 year old, and double that of course with 2 of them!  We always start getting into the spirit by "decking the halls" so here is Morgan with her "Baby's 1st Christmas" ornament
 and Madylin with hers.
All the kids were so excited to see Santa this year.  Nathan would see pictures of Santa and say "ho ho ho" really slowly and with his "deep voice."  It was priceless.
I heard about this website from a friend where you could personalize a message from Santa to your child so I prepared one for each of the girls.  Santa said their names and had pictures of them and talked about things they'd done that year.  He also told each of them something he wanted them to work on.  Morgan was told to try hard to listen to her parents, and Madylin was told to try to eat everything off of her plate (Santa really knew what they struggled with :).  Let me just tell you the message was awesome and well received and it worked!!  The girls were always talking about what Santa told them to do and tried really hard to do it.
Here is a picture of part of Madylin's message.
and Morgan watching her message from Santa.
And just cause it's cute and he's wearing Christmas pajamas, here's a picture of my little fire fighter.

Those Santa messages look so neat! I will have to remember that for next year!
