Santa Visit 2011

On Saturday we went to the Gaylord to see Santa Claus. It was so much fun!!! The hotel is decorated so beautifully for Christmas and Santa was so sweet to our boys. Love that jolly ole chap! ;)

We waited in line for about 30 minutes, but none of us complained because there was so much to look at. The boys just stood in bewilderment, pointing out all of the decorations. It was one of those moments where you can really see Christmas through the eyes of a child.

I waited until the very last minute to change Owen into his outfit, for fear of some sort of blow out/spit up incident. I changed him in his carseat and Wade died laughing at how I practically stood him on his head contorting him into his outfit. Sweet little thing never made a fuss - he just rolls with it. Third babies are crazy awesome!

As soon as they got all of the boys situated, the camera lady got their attention with a clapper thing. They all looked straight at the camera and smiled for the first shot. Success. ;)

Clayton in line with his list. He drew a picture of Santa and our fireplace. If you look closely, you can see that he drew in our Elf on the Shelf, Nick. Ha!
I snapped this one when they were looking at the tree. They had no idea that I was taking their picture. I'm so glad that they love each other. :)

Poor kid - practically folded in half! All in the name of a cute outfit... :)

I love our yearly visits to Santa. Such fun memories with our boys...

Super cute!! But, I've gotta say... your 2007 pic is the absolute best. I am so happy I got to share in that special memory :)

I love seeing how that time line has evolved!
