Merry Christmas!!

Due to lack of time we will not be sending out Christmas cards this year. We figured with the blog up and running it was not that big of deal. We did have a great visit with Santa at the Zoo. On Friday we went with the Banks to the zoo. We were lucky enough to get to go see the Sea Lions before hand with Sarah. Eli and Andrew got kisses from the Sea Lion, Caleb was a little unsure. Noah had a great time feeding the Sea Lion. It is so nice to get these special extras from knowing Sarah. Both Noah and Eli enjoyed making Sea Lion noises. The kids were both excited and scared, the twins really had no clue what was going on.

Andrew sitting very patiently while he got his kiss. (Eli's picture did not come out because of a battery issue in the camera, we think Megan may have one so it may be coming later.)

From there we went to see Santa. It was a great experience, for the first time!! This has been the first year that we have a child old enough to actually enjoy this. It was so fun to see Eli talking to Santa and getting excited to tell him what he wants. We started off with all three with him for pictures and then Eli got to talk to him. Eli did great, he sat there and petted Santa's outfit while he told him everything that he wanted. There were live reindeer there as well as other activities. Noah and Eli enjoyed eating marshmallows afterwards. It was a great moment for me, it really shows how old Eli is getting.

All three boys looking very serious, not quite sure what is going on!
Eli giving Santa his wish list. It was great!!

The rest of our week was running all over town trying to get ready for Christmas. Josh had a few days off so we were busy getting things done. It is amazing to me to think that I am a few short weeks from going back to work. I am getting pretty sad thinking about it!

Twin update, Caleb finally got his first tooth. The two are continuing to walk along the furniture with taking a few steps to get from one thing to another. Of course it would not be a holiday without us getting sick. Right now all three boys have colds, yeah!!

We wish everyone a Merry Christmas and safe travels!
