Happy St Nick's Day!
A little sisterly love to show off our new jammies that St Nick brought us
Luca's gettin' in on the action
Cuteness and handsomeness
They really *do* love each other
Trip to The Mills
Unplanned visit with Santa
(The kids all talked with Santa just fine but when it came time to sit with him for the picture, forget it...that's how Mommy ended up in the pic)
Our favorite lawn decoration at Cabela's...a reindeer wearing camo and toting an AK-47 rifle...Merry Christmas!

A trip to Fort Zumwalt Park to see the "YIGHTS"

Spinnin' with Grandpa
Lukey riding the big wooden train...Perry, Ella, Drew, and Grandma playing with the electric train

Hopefully Santa didn't mind the half-eaten cookies
After Santa's visit
Luca is immediately drawn to his new train table
And Ella spies the easel
Everyone's gotta check out the cookie plate and mugs
Back to playing
