It's Almost Here!

We are enjoying all the excitement leading up to Christmas. Alexa has really gotten into all the festivities this year and it has been so fun to watch her and share in her joy. We saw Santa today at the mall and she wanted NOTHING to do with that guy. I hope she doesn't have nightmares about him coming down the chimney and into our house tomorrow night. We sent him a letter this year so he would know what she was wishing for. She is under great distress trying to keep our gifts a secret. She so badly wants to tell us what we got for the other. She let one slip the other day to me and as soon as it was out of her mouth and she saw my face she immediately burst into tears. I told her not to worry that I would not tell Daddy that she told me my gift. I think she will be relieved when it's all out in the open. : ) Tomorrow night after we get home from my sister-in-law's house I need to wrap all her gifts yet. The only thing that she really wanted was Spike the Dinosaur. I can't wait to see her face when she opens it.
This is such a great age and I love seeing it all through her eyes. What a gift she is!

What a cutie pie!
Miss Lucy wants nothing to do with the big guy either.
We had to promise her night after night that Santa was NOT going to come just to get her to sleep! I don't have a clue how to handle Christmas morning! LOL!
Merry Christmas!

She is so cute!! Sarah wanted nothing to do with him either and has labeled him "the scary man"....maybe next year she will get over it!!

Hope you and your family have a very Merry Christmas!!
