Max met Santa for the first time today and he did great! Our neighborhood had free photos with Santa as well as activities and sweets for the kids. It was so much fun and we were so excited the photo turned out so well! I assumed he would scream as soon as I sat him on Santa's lap (like most babies do), but he was too busy looking around at everything to cry.
We have really enjoyed this Christmas season so far. Instead of getting all wrapped up in the hustle and bustle, we are trying to really enjoy all the little things (like meeting Santa). Last night, I was perfectly content just hanging out with Max and Tyler and watching a Christmas movie on tv. My how our Saturday nights have changed! But we are really enjoying our first Christmas with Max and can't wait to spend time with family over the next few weeks. We are also excited about starting our own family traditions and carrying them on year to year.
