Merry Christmas!!!

And here it is... this years Christmas card that I opted not to mail out this year. Too tired, too pregnant and I just didn't have the energy.

From our Family to Yours... 
We Hope Everyone has a Wonderful Christmas and Fantastic New Years!! xoxo

This Santa was much better than Last Years Santa: 2010. The "she-man" Santa. It was a women with a bad beard. But it was sweet, she tried to be a dude and tried to have a man voice... and we appreciated it!

And the boys look so little in 2009's Christmas Card.

Telling Santa what they wanted for Christmas was absolutely priceless to watch. 
I hope they believe in Saint Nicolas for a very long time because it's just so sweet!

John tells me that the kids are perfecting his fake "cheeeeese" smile. Yes, it's obvious in these 2 shots :) John, Kellen and Adrian's faces. It usually starts happening around the 20th time I say "say cheeeese" or "show me your teeth." I don't blame them, I am definitely that annoying mom, pathological picture taker!!!

After our visit with Santa we took the boys out to lunch (we try this about once a month... and it's not always a pleasure, about 50/50 :) Maybe it was the excitement from seeing Santa, I'm not sure... but the boys were on their best behavior and it was probably the best "out to eat" experience with all of them in a long time. It made for a great day! 

(and now it's documented so when we try this again in January and it's a total nightmare we can look back at this and not lose hope :)
