it's not even Christmas yet!!

The Anderson side celebrated a few days early--scheduling is tricky now a days. We began with caroling at the Pacific Coast Care Center--great idea Heather. The kids were adorable--their best performed song was Jingle Bells. Everyone was filled with the Christmas Spirit. Then we headed to my home to be filled with Christmas Dinner. My pretzel jello salad was a good attempt. Then we finished off with a few fun toys and just enjoyed each other a whole heck of a lot.

the stockings were hung . . .

This is what I get when I ask for them to stand by their stockings. yep, Caden refused but that was one battle I chose to lose. I'm just thrilled we got them all to pose for the fam holiday pic.

More festive fun!

All but Ray Ray enjoyed seeing Santa at our friends party. After getting her "wuff wuff" from him we approached (her in my arms) told him bye bye and blew kisses. Kendra was prompted to ask Santa for a new house, Caden muttered something we couldn't understand and Brady well . . . same as Caden, good thing Santa understands Toddlerese. I've got a hunch Caden would enjoy a large stuffed unicorn. thank you Turtle (a fellow lineman friend of Jared) and his wife Dani for your annual Santa arriving--kid craft--good grub Christmas party.

Let the Holiday HOOPLA begin!

With the ever so anticipated holidays here, this year I have already enjoyed the excitement of my children. The kids being so young, you never know how much they comprehend and what they feel about Christmas and it's wonderful meaning. We are trying to focus on the sacred event--so Caden calling it the "Baby Jesus Show" will just have to do for now.
