we typically visit santa a lot earlier in the season.
things felt so much more rushed at the end and i think the girls last day not being till the 21st had a lot to do with that. aubrey and i had taken a few "drive-by's" when we happened to be at the mall during december and she alwasy seemed very reluctant.
i knew her sisters being there would help ease her apprehensions a bit.

she would not take her arm off riley's shoulder.
so sweet.

ho, ho, ho
merry christmas!


  1. Aw, I love that she used Riley for a little bit of "protection" and a safe feeling. How sweet. Love the Santa pictures. What a beautiful set up!

  2. Love it, Cindy! They will never forget visits to Santa! And how nice of a Santa set up too!
