since tonight was one of the warmer nights that we have had recently, (and to celebrate clif's return from denver) we decided to fulfill the long awaited promise of taking the kids to see the neighborhood santa.
then it was the younger boy's turn to talk to mr. claus.
back in the warmth of the car, we were able to enjoy more wintery high"lights" (the blow up extravaganza in windsor valley, and the woody's forest display) but decided to call it a night and head to peter's place for hot cocoa. now i ask you...wouldn't you pay $4plus if drinking something could make you look as cute as this kid? he should totally be starbucks new spokesman!! ;) and speaking of spokesperson (not that i am official or anything)...i would just like to add that if you haven't had the signature hot chocolate...you haven't had hot chocolate...to...die...for!!!
the three year olds really enjoyed themselves too, and their yummy cookie. thanks guys for going with us, we had lots of fun. we'll have to make it an annual tradition!
oh yeah, i almost forgot...earlier when we were at target (what?! don't you go to target everyday?) vivian saw the adult version of her own elephant pj's and said, "mommy, santa claus would LOOOOOVe it if you had those pj's." ahhh, the power of three year old sweetness. so tonight, after experiencing a big dose of christmas spirit, we donned our matching jammies for the camera....hey, but check out the old lady rockin' the haribow!! ;)
