For the last few years the kids and I have gone to meet Santa at Clay Casa. We paint ornaments, eat some cookies, put handprints on plates and get into the Christmas spirit. It's a great way to start the holidays! This year CGN was not as thrilled to let Santa hold her. We got some other pictures that she looks a little less terrified. Looking back at all our encounters with Santa is a great way to see how fast the kids have grown. Merry Christmas to all of you!
"If you want a happier family, create, refine and retell the story of your family's positive moments and your ability to bounce back from the difficult ones. That act alone may increase the odds that your family will thrive for many generations to come." Bruce Feiler (--New York Times)
