Last weekend, we had the luxury of seeing Santa twice! Saturday our local MOPS group sponsored a cookies with Santa event that we have been to the past 4 years. This year it was a little hectic with three I must say and I did not do very well at the picture taking part. Clark talked about Santa ALL DAY and once we got there he would not smile and he did not speak. I was a little bummed only because he was so excited and then he acted so shy. (Shy is not usually something he knows much about) So we snapped a few pics and got to see some lovely friends that we had not seen in a while and followed it up with lunch of Clark's choosing...McDonald's.

Pretty sure he is just excited to head to McD's for nuggets.
If I EVER get them all to smile in one photo I might have a party.
Good thing on Sunday we had invites to two Santa parties where we would be seeing the same Santa and Mrs. We were unsure which party we would be able to hit up due to naps and feeding times, but the later one worked and we headed out to try the whole Santa thing again. This time was MUCH BETTER!! Clark loved it and had plenty of time to warm up to Santa before it was his tum to talk to him. Santa and the Mrs. were at the home of some church friends of ours and it was a more intimate setting and he could actually hear the story being read and was not as overwhelmed. He told Santa he wanted a "Blast-off Sports Car". I do hope Santa knows what that is because we have NO IDEA. He has described it as "a sports car that can go to the moon"- oh jeez!
