A formal Christmas picture with Santa's knee

We've been to see Santa countless times already this season, well to be honest it's not countless but I'm not admitting the real number. Anyhow, we haven't done any planning, so each visit has been haphazard and last-minute. I guess I should say "spontaneous," yeah that sounds much better, our Santa visits have been spontaneous. Heh. So wouldn't you know it, when I finally plan ahead and dress the girls in fancy little Christmas outfits to go see the man in red he's on a break for an hour and then there's a line that winds around the mall. Oh well, here are our little sweeties and Santa's knee (in the upper right corner of the picture if you look carefully). Good enough!

2008: Didn't want to brave the line so we just waved to Santa 2008: Little cuties wanted to "sit on Santa's yap" but the line was insane (
Can you tell who's who? Their facial expressions are "sassy" for Ree, and "sweet" for Ro. If that hint doesn't help, Ree is in the white top and Ro is in the black one.)

It was my dad's bday yesterday, so we played hooky and went on a little "snow or bust" roadtrip. This time going even higher so we found enough white stuff to sled in. Whoohooo! The girls were absolutely thrilled, and playing in the snow and sledding with your granddaughters must be one of the best ways to spend a bday. Happy birthday dad! Here are the pics, Ro is in the white coat and Ree is in the black one, my dad's the one wearing a big grin.

  9. Hey, how about nut rolls? To be colored they'd have to be dipped in something, but I'm sure that's out there somewhere.

    Looks like a tube of nuts...

  11. Snow much fun!! Did you teach the girls how to make snow angels. Still one of my favourite things to do although it's been a couple of years since I made one. They're such fun!

    What a great way to spend a birthday! Happy Birthday BobBob!!

  12. They look so beautiful, all dressed up. I'm loving the snow pictures. Looks like so much fun. Thanks for the Christmas card. It was adorable(as usual). I am getting mine in the mail tomorrow. You should receive it just in time for Christmas. Organized and on time, I am. Heh.

    Great pics! Ok, I just consulted with my better half (T), about the Tubanuts and made her go back to the original post to catch up. We came up with, J: they clearly know what a Tuba is, and so either it is a nut that looks like a tube (curls around) - like a cashew. But it's pink, hmmm, kinda throws that out. T: maybe it's something that's pink, like yogurt covered. Maybe yogurt covered pretzels. Pink AND curls around. Just food for thought. jntskid

  16. Just the best looking Christmas elves I've seen. Darling skirts. And Santa looks stunning. Good shot of him. Hee hee hee COme to our house for snow. We have had 3 days of it now. I think we have 5 inches. More tonight and Sunday. Maybe I could send you a yard full in a big freezer box.

  17. Just looking at your girls makes me smile. What a nice way to start my morning!

  18. Hi guys, the skirts are from www.childrensplace.com. I got them months ago with Christmas in mind, and noticed they've been massively discounted right now, so if anyone wants one you can get one for $5.99. They're a neat velvet material, and Ro and Ree are wearing the 4T size, which fits them perfectly. (They're 36.5 inches tall and 31.5 to 33.5 pounds right now)

  19. We have the same outfits except a black top. We wore them to see santa as well....but didn't actually even get to see him!

  20. Absolutely adorable!!! And it looks like the girls had a blast in the snow! We should all have that much fun once in a while! :-)

  21. Okay, so after some consideration and consultation of my children, what if you take twizzlers and roll them up in curls and circles and make your own "tuba nuts" since the picture kind of looks like that!!

    You can always fool them!
