On this past Friday Daddy and I decided to take the kids to the Dulles Town Center mall to get the kids picture taken with Santa. Yes there are no smiles but at least there no screaming children either. Most of you know we did not get a picture of Santa last year with the kids together. As Jacob sat for one picture and only one picture of Santa and he was by himself. Yes we did visit several Santa's I think I lost count at about 10 visits. Needless to say I am very happy that we got a picture of both of them on Santa's lap together. Jenna wasn't really sure and kept looking at Santa's beard but she looked at the camera long enough to get this picture snapped.
And then there was conversation...
After the picture taking was done Santa said to Jacob "Jacob, have you been a good boy this year?"and Jacob quietly replied with a yes. Then Santa said "Well Jacob what would you like Santa to bring you this year?" Jacob then said "A Match Box shark and a Match Box Octopus" Then Santa said "Is there anything else you would like?" and Jacob said "No just those two things."It really was the cutest this is the first year that Jacob has told Santa what he wants for Christmas. These two things are toys that he's been looking at every time we go into a Target or a Wal-Mart. After they were done Santa said to Jacob "What does your sister Jenna want for Christmas?" And almost at the same time they both said a baby. It was just too cute to hear them both say Jenna wanted a baby. Then before leaving Santa told Jacob that he had to be a GOOD boy for the next three weeks if he wanted Santa to bring those two toys. He also told Jacob that he would need to be a good big brother for the next three weeks. My baby is getting to be such a BIG boy in just 22 days he's going to be 4 years old.
Hope everyone had a good weekend and is getting the rest of their decorating done.Oh and of course your Christmas shopping done too. I am done decorating but not nearly done Christmas shopping. I am happy to say though I did get out and buy some of the party supplies for Jacob's up and coming party. I also did get the invites in the mail so hopefully I've given everyone enough notice. Jacob is soooooo excited about his Scooby Doo birthday party. Every morning when we wake up he asks me if it's his birthday yet. He's just too cute!
