We've watched all the holiday specials with him in them.
We've always put cookies, carrots, milk and oats out for him and his reindeer.
We've always enjoyed scaring them when they were little...Will was especially frightened of the man in red. Ethan's preschool teachers pulled me aside in the weeks before Christmas saying I might want to "talk to him" (as if) because he was upsetting all of his friends by telling them Santa wasn't real.

S0, Wednesday night as we sauntered around the mall, Molly saw this very authentic Santa and wanted to get her picture taken with him. Levi was a little more tentative but he gave in. David was a total sucker (so cute) for Molly's request...and here is the result. A 5 x 7 piece of immortality...
Molly sat there and told him all the things she wanted, fearlessly. I guess that's good.
Today's a busy day...our good friends are going out of town for a few weeks for the holidays so we are going to spend some time with them...David's working, Randy's finishing our siding, the kids are helping me with the littles so I can spend some time with Tambo....
and on we go...hope this finds you well. busy weekend ahead. pix of siding up soon.
Emmanuel...God with Us.
