Santa! I know him!

We went and had our annual Santa picture taken this past Sunday and it went pretty well. The last 2 years Jake and I have had to be in the picture so it was nice to not have to be in it this year. Jackson was a champ and did great. Avery, was a little timid and wasn't really having it at first but did eventually warm up and sit on Santa's lap. She didn't say much but they did both tell Santa what they wanted for Christmas this year.

We went to Six Flags to see Santa this year and he was a great Santa! He was really sweet. While we were there we also saw Mrs. Claus and we wrote letters to Santa as well. Of course we rode rides too and saw the Nativity show again because it's just so good.

Jackson has really only asked for one thing this year and it's the Cars 3 Florida Speedway Racetrack. Avery has been asking for 2 dollies, 2 barbies and a toaster. Ha! Between Jake and I and all the family members she gets presents from, she will be getting all of those things. ;-) She's so funny and has been so easy to buy for this year. She gets so excited about even the littlest gifts so anything girly will be so exciting for her to get. Ha.

I'm so excited for Christmas this year. We've got all the presents bought, wrapped and under the tree... all but their gifts from Santa that is. Those are bought but still need to be put together. Jackson's Santa gift is the Cars 3 Racetrack he's been asking for and Avery's gift from Santa is a Disney Frozen Ride-On Sleigh. The kids are at such fun ages for Christmas. They are so excited and make Christmas so much fun! I'm really looking forward to it.

We have a fun and full Christmas weekend planned. Saturday we are spending the day with Jake's immediate family at his brother's house. Sunday (Christmas Eve) we'll be going to my Aunt and Uncle's house in the afternoon and then to church that night for the Christmas Eve service. Then Christmas day we'll spend the whole day at home in our pajamas and then the day after Christmas we'll be hosting my immediate family. It will be such a fun four days of celebrating Christmas! I am really looking forward to it.

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!
