Santa Claus

We have been to 5 different Christmas parties this year and Santa has been at each one of them. After the first one, Scott and I realized that the kids totally knew Santa was really Scott. So, we talked to them about how dad went through a special certification at the North Pole with Santa to "help" Santa. He can't make it to every holiday party so Santa has asked a few dads to help out. :) They totally bought it.

Sweet Gavin even knew it was Scott every time. Santa would walk in and Gavin would run over yelling, "Santa daddy is here!!" But would never want to sit on his lap. He would scream and cry. One time Scott used his real voice and said, "Gavin, it's me dad. It's okay don't cry!" But that didn't work either.

Brigham always was excited to see Santa. He was never scared to sit on his lap either. Brigham would giggle and clap in excitement. It was real cute.

On Saturday afternoon I told Gavin and the other brother's that that night we were off to another Christmas party and Santa would be there. Gavin asks me, "mom, Santa Dad or Santa ho ho?" Too cute.
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
