Holiday kick-off!

Yesterday was our town's kick off to the holiday season. There were lots of things going on all day around town. We decided to take part in a few of them through out the day. After lunch, we went to the theater to watch a frees showing of the Grinch. Even though we own the movie and have watched it a million times it seems, the kids enjoyed going to the theater and having popcorn and treats and sitting with their cousins. After the movie, we went to the fire hall where the boys made some crafts and then we stood in line forever to santa. The two older boys were pretty excited to see Santa and tell him what he wanted...Landon, on the other hand, hated every minute of it! It was a fun way to start the holidays. I can't believe it's already that time of year!

Landon enjoyed a yummy sugar cookie while we waited in line to see Santa.

Oh the joys of meeting Santa!

Making Santas. 
Landon has a new obsession with the stairs! We can't keep him away from them and haven't been able to find a baby gate that is wide enough to fit across the top of our stairs. One of his newest favorite things to do is take toys and throw them down and then go down after it! This fun little game has resulted in a few new bumps and bruises, as you can see. He always makes it down the long set of stairs, but for some reason, falls down the last two that lead to our basement which is unfinished, which means no carpet and cement! Poor little guy has been sporting this nice little goose egg for a couple days now! I guess he will figure it out sooner or later!

Dang, that is the best and most real looking Santa we have ever seen. We are reluctant to take our boy to see Santa in fears that it will traumatize him for life. Maybe will should and get lots of pictures of it. Hope you have a great Thanksgiving.
