Holy cow I can't believe it is already time to see Santa again. Every year for the past 8 years (Kate was born 12 days before Christmas) we go to see the Santa at Phipps Plaza. We than go to The Tavern at Phipps for lunch. It is such a fun tradition. This year is by far my favorite. All three were so great and they each made a wish list. Santa spent some time reading each wish list with each kid and really made sure he understood what they wanted. The funny thing is Kate always has a puppy on her wish list. Santa was very smart by telling her that it may not be the right time for a puppy and that he would have to talk to her parents first (Santa is so smart). I was only able to get one picture of the kids visit with Santa.
The Nichols family and the Gersch family joined us again this year for Santa and lunch. It is so fun to share this great tradition with good friends. Now if Will would just sit still for a picture with his friends.
We had a great Halloween. The kids were so excited all day!!! Kate dressed up as a UGA Cheerleader (thanks Aunt Niki) and Noah was a clone tropper (how much more Star Wars do I need to watch) and Mags was a ladybug (thanks cousin Anna). We have a tradition on Halloween. For the past 7 years we have our neighbors over for a feast and trick or treating. This year we had a great spread. Yummy BBQ, chicken tortilla soup, veggie tray, chips and salsa, and this very yummy graveyard treat (concoction of marshmellows, peanuts, cocoa puffs and syrup). This year we hung out with the Nichols family and the Gersch Family.
The kids went trick or treating and than came home ate some candy and watched "It's a Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown". They all had a great time. Maggie really got into the fun. She insisted on carrying her own bag and pushed her way to the door to say trick or treat. It was so cute!
We have three beautiful children. Kate is 9, Noah is 7, and Maggie is 4. We also have a Black Lab mixed with a golden retriever named Belle. She is 5 months old. Noah and I have known eachother for 15 years and married for 11 years.
Kate is 9! She wants to be a ballerina when she grows up.
Noah is 7! He wants to be an astronaut when he grows up.
Maggie is 4! She likes to run with her hands in the air!
