Kids love Santa

The boys got a full run-down of the man in the red coat this year.  A Winnie-The-Pooh holiday special taught them everything about Christmas time, and became clear as day when we accidentally ran into St. Nick at our favorite play center.  Kaleb's reaction left me feeling a little magical...He yelled "Santa" ran straight up to him with his hands covering his mouth (he was SO excited) climbed right up on his knee and said " KK be good boy, wants red car go really fast with wheels."  AJ was happy, but a little more timid.  He did share his gift request (tractor with wheels with tractor trailer), said thank you and left to stand in the trampoline line.

Like last year Keith and I took the boys to spend the night at Great Grandmas house, where they have a big dinner, gift exchange and the boys got to run around the house chasing the sound of sleigh bells.  They got really lucky and even heard a "ho-ho-ho" in the distance.  The excitement was priceless.  Keith and Timmy used to do the exact thing as kids, so they ate up every second of sharing the tradition with K&A.

Keith also grew up visiting a tree farm, which he did with the boys for the first time this year.  The boys helped make the final decision, watched Keith saw it down, then AJ pulled the tree back to the barn  Seriously.  He is so strong.  And since we were away on the actual Christmas eve, Santa visited our house a couple nights later instead.  The boys we're ecstatic at the first sight of their new bicycles.  These balance bikes are probably the best things ever.  Aiden is a total pro....the first time outside he gave himself a giant push off, pulled his feet up and he's known how to ride a 2-wheeler for years.  I think he'll be on a pedal bike by the end of summer.

Big thanks to everyone for contributing to another amazing holiday. 
Happy new year to you all.  May 2016 bring you good health, love and happiness.
