Each year the whole Purdy family takes a trip to the lovely Richland Fashion Mall to go see Santa. Yes, Santa visits our house every single year, and my children still know the true meaning of Christmas. It can happen people-:) This is a really fun family tradition that we started a couple of years ago and I love every minute of it. Just by looking at the excitement in this picture you would think it went great right?!? I really laugh at this picture because Ally is so excited to be included in the fun with Stacey and Ryan (they are wrestling in the background)!

Ally and Honey are waiting and watching all the other children sitting on Santa's lap.

My sweet niece Lila even made the outing...I mean check out that preciousness.

Get your dance on

Waiting to see Santa is Hard!

A quick change into the green sweaters for the boys and we're ready. Stacey and Ryan are checking everything out.

And then it's our turn. Ally's screaming, Wyatt refuses, and I start really sweating. Santa is very calm and is handling all the Purdy craziness like a pro. By the way, Wyatt didn't fall out of Santa's lap he just decided to throw a small fit. Ally's SCREAMING did not help at all!

And the "official" picture. Oh... if a picture is worth a thousand words then I really don't need to say anything else but enjoy.

Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas
