Santa and Alex

Made our annual trip to see Santa last night. We got there just in the nick of time... it was almost Santa's dinner time!

Alex was not shy, as usual, and had a list of items that were mostly electronic (XBox 360, a new TV, etc.). Don't know where this kid gets his tastes, but hope he's not too disappointed when it isn't all under the tree!

I was looking back at all of our Santa pictures. It's amazing how much change happens over the course of one year and how unaware we are of it happening. Somehow, Alex has turned from a toddler into a boy right underneath our noses. I'm not sure I'm ready for that!

I was happy to finally make this trip. This holiday season hasn't felt that festive with Dad's death. Luckily, Alex is as excited as any six year old should be. Our decorations got put out a little late, and most of our traditions are a few weeks behind, but it's great to have Alex helping us remember a bit about the holiday spirit.
