What's Christmas without having at least one child crying on Santa's lap. Actually Gracie loved Santa until she saw me backing away to take the picture and thought her Mom was leaving her.
We had to talk Wyatt into going and see Santa. Wyatt said to me "Mom you go and tell him what I want this year, OK." We had to tell him it doesn't work that way. So when we got up to Santa right away Wyatt starts OK I want this year, its kind of hard to explain but its a power Miner cage from Lego.
Santa said "so do you want to sit on my lap?"
Wyatt "ooh no, no, no."
Santa "OK do you want a candy cane?"
Wyatt "hum is it peppermint I don't like peppermint."
Santa was lost for words.
With Dean we all practiced before on what to say to Santa, but when it was his turn not really sitting on Santa's lap, he clamed up. Wyatt came to the rescue. It really didn't go like the other millions of kids that sit on Santa's lap every year. Somehow they got all of their wishes told to Santa and hopefully they will be good kids where they will get what they want.

Gracie had a great birthday. We invited all her aunts, uncles, cousins and many Grandparents. Almost everyone came we had 55 people. We had lots of cupcakes and ice cream. We had a pinata full of candy. Gracie got lots of gifts. I stored some of the presents away for Christmas.

We got a library card this month. I thought the kids would love to read new books. I was right. We had to pay $70 for an out of city fee for it, but my own city payed $40 back, thank goodness. The first week we got 8 books and one of them, somehow, ended up outside and got wet. I thought it was fine to take back but they caught me and made us buy the book. Paul was mad we ruined a book on our first week. I think it was a $4 learning experience. One more thing, the boys love having new books but when I say lets go to the library, they both whine about going, but they love being there, weird huh.
This is my 6 year old. He is such a cute boy but his teeth are killing me. He's at the age where he's losing his teeth pretty fast, but he doesn't like to pull them out, because he hates when they bleed. Wyatt will loosen them until they are dangling. I just don't know why he won't just yank them. I keep telling him we have to look at his gross teeth. So I took this picture to show him how gross it looks. Wyatt told me that was gross and not to show the whole world this photo, but oh well I am showing the world, sorry Wyatt.
maybe he should wear these until his tooth falls out.
