We got our Christmas card photo taken (downtown Minneapolis, outside of the courthouse), and got them in the mail (though I didn't keep good track of who I sent them to and it feels like I missed quite a few people):
The girls drew pictures and wrote letters to Santa:
They visited with Santa (he's the real one, Zoe asked and that's what he told her) ....
.... and they sat on his lap for pictures:
Tom even took care of wrapping most of our presents this year after I told him how stressed I was feeling trying to get everything done. He also told me about a conversation he heard on Minnesota Public Radio that talked about how beautifully wrapped gifts can be a let-down once unwrapped, so he kept the wrapping of our gifts simple so no one would be disappointed. Ha! Love that he was helpful AND made me laugh : )
It always feels so good to cross things off the list AND have fun while doing them!!
Up next, The Christmas Tree.
