First Visit to Santa

Before moving out of our condo we decided to have our own Christmas and enjoy our last night in our place. We opened gifts by our Charlie Brown tree, then put Mila's gift together (video to come). After Mila took her last nap we headed to Riverwoods for dinner and to see Santa.
We started the tradition last year of looking at Christmas lights on Christmas Eve to remind us of the light Christ brings to our lives. The Riverwood lights were a perfect reminder!
As for Mila's for experience with Santa, it was a success! After being introduced, she had no problem sitting on his lap long enough for us to get the obligatory photo. Thanks Santa!

So cute! :) Congratulations on selling! Hard timing, but then again, you had some great points about the blessings that have come as a result. Cool. Let's hope the trend continues for us this spring... ;)
