It's begining to look a lot like Christmas...

...when you go see Santa Claus! Santa's little photo hut is set up in the town square where we live. We had a great time waiting in line with other families and playing on the court house steps.

What was cool about this year was that Sarah was totally into it. Last year...not so much. But she was way into hopping on Santa's lap and sharing with him what was on her wish list: a dolly, Barbie, and an X-Box 360 for Daddy (all of which she got expect for the X-Box...she got totally gipped!).

Parker, on the other hand, wasn't into the whole snuggle-with-a-large-man-in-a-smelly-red- suit-and-share-with-him-your-Christmas-feelings thing. So he decided to live vicariously through his big sister and stay in Momma's arms. We had a great time and we'll see Santa next year - same Bat time, same Bat channel.

There really is something to be said about the magic of Christmas and how it brings out the kids in all of us. The best part of the night for me was playing and running around with Parker and watching Sarah grow more and more excited as she moved closer to the little red house.

It lead me to think about what Mary and Joseph's real feeling were as they rode to Bethleham waiting the birth of first Child, Jesus. Fear? Wonder? Excitement? Fatigue? All of the above? Who knows, I'm just thankful that Jesus came and made "home" with us.
