Best Shot Monday - Santa Surprises

While this is not a technically great shot (or even a technically mediocre shot if you want to be picky), it is still one of my favorites. We celebrated Christmas with the boys early, and since they aren't old enough to even know what a calendar is it was easy to tell them that Christmas Eve was Saturday night and that Christmas was Sunday.

This was the look on Garrett's face when he realized that Santa really did come while he was sleeping:


Santa Came!


I think that Christmas filled with the excitement of toddlers might be one of my very favorite things...

That wouldn't work here, they've been marking the days off on the calendar! I love that look.....those cars are great. We have a barbie one that is about 5 years old and still well rode! Have fun!
