When Santa Comes to Town...

We had the opportunity to go to a party last week...and Santa was the surprise guest! We were so thankful to be able to attend! We parents brought a gift from home for each child. Santa gathered up the gifts that were hidden in a secret location and then popped in through the front door with a specific gift for each child. He did magic tricks, read them a book and told them the true story of Christmas. It was such a special afternoon (plus we got to avoid the mall Santa thing)! Thanks, Star! Here are a few pics from the event:

No crying so far...
We may just make it...

Awww...such a pleasant finish (compared to last year's experience).
She asked Santa for make-up. Yah. :I And so it begins....


Well, Merry Christmas everyone! This is a song from Natalie Grant called "I Believe". The quality is not great, but it's a wonderful song. It's powerful, even though she's only accompanied by a piano in this version.



I watched this for the first time in it's entirety with Dustin and the girls this year. A Charlie Brown Christmas...can't beat this part...



May your prayers touch the Heavens and the Heavens touch your heart.

Merry Christmas,

Dustin, Angie, Mia & Emy

What a great idea to have Santa share the Christmas story! I've never heard of that -- wonderful. Your girls look adorable in their outfits. :o)
Merry Christmas,

How magical for all of you....especially the kids. They will talk about that meeting for years to come, I'm sure. Merry Christmas!
