I believe...

...in letting my kids believe in Santa Claus. I believe in him as a symbol. We let our kids believe in many things, cartoon characters, heroes, people. I like this book using Santa as a Christmas symbol for Jesus. Isn't that what he is there to remind us of? Love. Giving. Joy.
We took a ride on the Polar Express this week. The girls were so excited. What fun is that, to be excited to see this jolly old man!
This was little Bay, the picture of all seriousness. She took this whole experience very solemnly. She was going to see Santa Claus and get a bell. She is a very focused kid.
And Boo switched back and forth from complete awe to jumping up and down excitement at it all. This is her face right when Santa walked into the train.

What cute kids. Is it just me, or does Bay look like Phil and Boo look like you? The Polar Express would be fun. WE're getting ready to go home for Christmas. Have a great week!
