The girls skipped around the capitol saying, "Take my picture here. Ohhh, take it here." Haha!

Last night, hubby and I sent a letter to Santa, via Sparkles, the elf. We requested that he visit our home a night early. Sparkles didn't bring a response this morning so we aren't sure if he is coming or not. We decided to leave cookies and milk just in case...and a note, of course :o)

Cookies and milk for Santa...carrots for the reindeers.

Sweet, sweet, sweet little hands!

Baby boy did not think it was a good idea to leave cookies and milk for Santa...he thought it would be a MUCH better idea for him to eat the cookies :o) He kept saying, "Yummy, yummy cookies." Haha! {For those you have never seen Baby Boy...when I put the heart over his face, I am covering up one of his best assets...his GORGEOUS eyelashes...ahhhhh, love them!}

I am happy to report that Santa did indeed decide to visit our house early! Whoo hoo! The girls (and boy) will be so excited when they wake up in the morning, not only did he deliver their gifts, I also got a picture of him with my camera!
