About a week before Christmas, Santa comes along at night on top of the firetruck! They drive up and down the streets in our town giving out treats for the boys and girls. Once you start hearing the siren you know that Santa is close by! I love that the fire company does this every year. It's going to be one of those memories that my children will always treasure!This was the first year that Ben wasn't afraid of Santa. When they stopped in front of our house they asked if Ben wanted to climb up on the truck and sit on Santa's lap....he never hesitated! He was very excited and told Santa everything that he wanted for Christmas! Alexander on the other hand was very afraid. He wasn't too fond of Santa this past Christmas!
Lastly, I'd like to share my Christmas photo of the boys. Since Alexander is two, he's very uncooperative when it comes to photo shoots. Ben also gets impatient and always asks "Are you done yet?!" So my idea this time was to give them lollipops as prop and as a distraction. This way they would stay happy....or at least that's what I thought!
Soon after I gave them their tasty treat....like most boys...they turned the lollipops into weapons!After banging their lollipops together- Ben's broke, but Alex thought that it was his that was broken! Notice the candy shards all over the floor! Alex was heart broken!
Before all of the drama had occured, I was able to capture the shot that I used for my Christmas cards!
I do however wished I had the time to incorporate all of these cute photos into one card. It just seemed that this past Christmas came soo fast! This year however my goal is to become more organized so I'm prepared for each holiday! I hope these photos gave you a good laugh. Sorry that they are so late, I just wanted to catch up a bit! I should be caught up now.
However, Beth at http://ramblinggal1960.blogspot.com/ asked to see the princess cake that I made last week. I'll post that one tomorrow! Have a great night everyone and stay warm! It's super cold here in Pennsylvania....3 degrees here right now! Too cold for me!
