Merry Christmas! And Christmas flashbacks.

Merry Christmas 2012!

I feel like we've really lucked out the past two years visiting Santa-- short lines, easy experiences with pretty good pictures! This years Santa even had a real beard, real white hair, glasses and rosy cheeks. And we could take our own pictures... for free! bonus!

Each Christmas has been a little bit different (like adding a new child each year to our pics or something?!?)

Last year with Santa.

Many family Christmas parties to attend. 

Visiting the Santa (she/man-- it was an obvious woman) at Grandma Julia's retirement facility.

Took me 150 pics to get all 3 to look at me :)

2008 was our first Christmas back in Ohio. Our first snowy Christmas in 7 years! It was nice and very welcomed.

Safety Harbor, FL days... Good times at this ole house!

Baby Adrian's first Christmas in 2006.

And taking it WAY back to the beginning! I love that we've (mostly John) kept all these old pictures organized so we can look back at all of these awesome memories.

Our first Christmas when we lived in Tampa on Davis Island in our teeny tiny 600 sq.ft. apartment that we paid way too much for, but was on the water with the best views of downtown Tampa and we were  just 10 steps from the Bay! Some fantastic times we had there! 

So Christmas has changed a bit... 
for the better of course. We now can enjoy the thrill and the magic of Santa all over again though our 4 beautiful boy's eyes and this has been the best year yet for that.
