Breakfast with Santa at the Zoo




The Snowman was giving out LOTS of lovin'

Except poor Luca didn't want anything to do with that Snowman
(in his defense, he had just choked on a bunch of grapes before the Snowman came over)


We think this is Elmo...but he's looking a little ragged


The kids don't seem to care

And he danced with them too




Telling him what they want for Christmas



And the Elf on the Shelf has arrived at our house.  We read the book Friday night
and he showed up on our mantle with a letter to the kids Saturday morning.

This is how we found him when he got back from the North Pole Sunday morning...


Which will they be?!?


Uploaded some pictures from my phone today...
