Christmas Memories 2009 - Part 1

I absolutely LOVE this time of year. The new fallen snow, the Christmas tunes, the Christmas movies, the sparkling lights on the Christmas tree...I just love it! Last night, Grant got out of work early so that we could go down to Minneapolis and see the Macy's (Dayton's) 8th Floor Christmas display. It turned out that they did the same one as last year, but what can ya do!?!?! Brendan LOVED it. After we went through the display, we got to see are at the end of that encounter. I'm sure I'll have some more photos to share with you of our 2009 Holiday season, but for now, Enjoy!

Holding daddy's hand while starting the "tour".

Watching the animals trim the Christmas tree...he loved this scene! I had asked him to smile for this picture and this is what he cute!!!

Brendan and mom in front of the singing trees...he would not look at daddy for the picture, there was just too much to look at!

Santa picture happy little man. He and I have been talking about Santa, looked at this picture from last year, practiced "what Santa says" "Ho Ho Ho" (Brendan only says "Ho Ho"...), waited really well in line for Santa, charged into the room and FROZE. I slowly walked him up to Santa, showed him the jingle bells on Santa's outfit, had him give him a "five", then set him on his lap....
Needless to say he was not happy to sit on Santa's lap at all! Oh well, you gotta have the hysterical crying kid on Santa's lap Christmas picture, dontcha?!?!

Ben froze at Santa as soon as he turned that corner into the room as well.

We are going tomorrow and I have a feeling our Santa picture will look exactly the same - but ya you gotta have the crying one at somepoint. Did they do the same theme as last year?

Korey said...

Yeah, is the same theme as last year. It was great for Brendan because he was so little last year that it really didn't matter to him, he loved looking at everything! I hope you guys get a great picture! :D
