We meet again, Santa....

 Not a day goes by that I don't laugh and think to myself, "Wow, that would make a great blog." But man, life is kickin' my butt lately. And by the time I have a minute to write about it, I'm too darn tired to even open the computer. To compound matters, my time on FB and Pinterest has been meager at best. {Gasp!}

So here I am takin' baby steps back to my blog. I have missed it. I have missed YOU! 
Life is happening quickly 'round here folks. 

Today, we skipped the craziness of the Black Friday Early Morning Sales and instead opted for a trip to the mall at a much more decent hour. Brian's family was with us for Thanksgiving so we ventured out for something to do! We were pleasantly surprised with a very UN-crowded parking lot and a surprisingly pleasant crowd in the mall! 

Best part? Guess who was waiting for the Bunchkins?
Kris Kringle, 
Sinter Klaus, 
Popo Jijo. 
The One. The ONLY. 
Santa Claus! 

And apparently, no one else even realized that there in the center of the mall, stood a gigantic red and green village made of candy canes and snowflakes housing the jolliest fellow in all the land.

So we walked right up and planted three little bodies on Santa's lap.
Two could've cared less but one...well, one was a wee bit terrified. I'll let you figure out which one.

How can you not smile at this? I mean really. Isn't this Christmas? All families MUST have a photo of their child screaming in Santa's lap. 
Once I get beyond the crying, all I can see in this picture are kids. Not babies, but big kids.  
Just two years ago, they were wee babies, all helmet clad, posing for the picture that would land itself on the front page of the Arizona Daily Star. 
Look how much they've grown...
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone, and Merry 'almost' Christmas to you!

Oh my...they do look SO big...and it was because I was thinking of the other Santa pic even before I scrolled down.

I'm shocked that Hunter's arms aren't reaching out saying "pick me up!"

Very cute!

I have to believe everyone has at least one picture of the Santa screamer! I'm waiting to see how Andy will respond to Santa this year...we'll find out in 2 weeks! I can't believe how big they have gotten...they are still as precious as can be!

THANK YOU THANK YOU for posting this picture so quickly! I've been thinking about it since you told me you visited Santa. It did not disappoint. It's a classic.

Oh my how big they are! They'll be graduating from high school before we know it. Sniff Sniff.

Ami, one of your greatest gifts/virtues is to see the positive in all of life's circumstances. The pic of the visit with Santa is priceless, wailing and all! Love you.

Poor Hunter! They really do look big here. Merry Christmas!

I, for one, have really missed your posts, and I really understand that feeling of wanting to write about so many things and not having enough time. Thanks for giving us all an update on the Bunchkins. Also, you're right! Those are kids, not babies. It's difficult to tell when you compare pics on a week-to-week basis, but when you go back in time a little, the difference is astounding! I can't wait 'til we get our first crying-with-Santa pic :)
