A Trip Uptown

Last Saturday morning the kids and I put up our Christmas tree. It's quite the experience with six little hands. Each of the kids have their own box of ornaments. They really had a good time pulling out their ornaments and hanging them on the tree.

In the afternoon, we headed Uptown to explore and enjoy the Christmas lights. An unexpected surprise was that Santa and Mrs. Claus were at The Green. The kids loved talking to them.


It's almost as if Andrew cannot believe he's actually touching Santa.



After we had walked (and ran) until we were tired, we headed to Fuel Pizza for dinner and to watch a little football.



Quite a fun day!

They looked very intense in checking out their own ornaments! Looks like they all had fun decorating.

Love, Grandma

Your kids are so much more restrained than mine when checking out their ornaments...
Andrew's face as he's touching Santa is too cute!

What beautiful pictures of your day!

Santa Clause looks lovely and I love your kids' smiles and reactions to Santa Clause. That is adorable with your son touching his leg that way.

I'm with Kristi, what starts out as a fun decorating event at our house always seems to turn into chaos.

But, such a good idea for each to have their own ornament box.
