Santa Visit 2016

We went on our annual Santa visit at the mall on Sunday afternoon. We always make a day of it. We go see Santa, ride the carousel, play in the Disney Store, and eat lunch.

Connor and Chloe wrote out their wish lists before we left.
Chloe is asking for a Princess Castle, Hello Kitty, a Hoola Hoop, and a dog with a bow (not a real dog, thank goodness!).
Connor is asking for a telescope, a remote control BB-8, a car (Hot Wheels), and a Chewbacca mask.
Cooper wants all things Paw Patrol (or at least that's what Connor and Chloe have convinced him that he wants).

I wasn't sure how Cooper was going to react. Last year, he loved Santa and would talk about him all the time. But right now, we're going through the shy stage where he won't look at anyone that he doesn't know when they try to talk to him. But he was all about it. He jumped right up in his lap and even told Santa what he wanted for Christmas.

Going over their lists...

I know I say this every year, but I LOVE this Santa. It's the same Santa every year, so it's awesome to look back at the pictures. I don't know why, but this means so much to me. He also takes the time to talk to them and always tells them that he loves them.

When we got home from the mall, I started unpacking all of the Christmas decorations and after Cooper's nap, we put the ornaments on the tree.

Chloe's last game of the season!

Chloe had her last soccer game of the fall season on Saturday.

We celebrated with a pizza party at Mazzios!
We have really grown to love our team and can't wait to play again in the Spring!

Halloween 2016

Our busy Halloween week started off with dress up night at dance class!

We were super pumped to wear our Halloween shirts one last time to school!

After our soccer games on Saturday, we put together treats for our friends at school.

Sunday morning, we woke up to a SPOOKY breakfast and our buckets were full of fun treats!

Our neighborhood did trick or treating on Sunday night so our Rainbow Unicorn, Ironman, and Storm Trooper got all dressed up to hit the streets!

Monday morning, we got to dress up again for our school parties! Today, Connor decided to be Darth Vader instead.

After school, we headed to Betsey's house for more trick or treating!

We love Halloween!!
