Santa's Footprints.

I found this super cool idea from Pinterest. One of my friends had re-pinned it and I re-pinned from her:) I think that's how I say that. We are so going to do it this. It seems super easy to do, I cannot wait. I am not sure what Cameron is going to think about it. Easton won't really understand this year. Next year will be a lot of fun because they both will be into it and know about Santa.  As long as they keep believing in Santa we will play along and try to make it real for them. I remember when I was little and believing in Santa. I even thought one year I saw Rudolph's nose glowing in the sky, I was like 5 years old. I know a few people who leave carrots out for the reindeer. I think we will do that also, if we remember:)

We don't have carpet in our living room so I am hoping the cat and the dog leave it alone. Our cat can get crazy sometimes so hopefully he doesn't screw it up.

So yesterday we went to see Santa.

And as you can see there is only one child sitting with Santa. We didn't even try to put Easton on his lap. He started covering his face and doing his little annoying fake whine before we even got in line, then once we started to get in line they both kinda backed up. I picked up Easton and he was kicking and wanted down so we decided to not even try it. Cameron was really hesitant and wouldn't go and even started to cry a little once he got on Santa's lap. He was all excited before hand then once it was time to go he froze and wanted nothing to do with him. I don't know what it is. So many kids hate going to see Santa but when we talk about him and tell them stories they get all excited.

I think today I will bake some cookies. I made up the dough the other day and every time I open the refrigerator I see it staring at me. Tomorrow I have some last minute things to get. A couple things for the boys and some stuff at the grocery store for the desserts I am making to take with us to my MIL on Christmas. My plan is to have everything done and not have to run to the store Saturday for any last minute items. Saturday is also Easton's birthday. I think instead of baking a cake I will just buy a small one. I already have enough baking to do so that will just make it a little easier on me. Even though they already had their party they still get a cake on their actual birthday. Lots to do and think about. Plus we have some other things going that is just adding to the chaos and stress.

I doubt I will get around to posting anything the next few days so I hope everyone has a great rest of the week and a very Merry Christmas.
