Santa Clause is Coming to Town

Christmas is in the air and Santa Clause has been watching our house like crazy this season! And Elem is all about it. He is more into Christmas time in general, being good for Santa, wrapping and opening presents, and being thankful for what you get no matter what it might be! This year has def been the best year to watch Elem get excited and look at all the toys and ideas of things he hopes for Santa to bring. He loves the Christmas Tree, all the ornaments, lights, stockings, everything. And most importantly, he loves him some Santa Clause! We made a trip to visit Santa with Cecilia and Nate, and Elem knew before we even left, exactly what he was going to say to the big man.

Feeling very cool to be talking to the "real" Santa Clause. Uhm, and we know he is the "real" Santa Clause because he has a real beard. I made sure Elem knew this important detail before we left for the visit!

Nate, Cecilia, and Elem....very interested in Santa, and not being shy AT ALL! Unfortunately, Santa's camera decided to not work right when we got to the front of the line, so there was a little issue with actually getting a pic. But at least we got to take our own for free! yay!

Santa: What would you like for Christmas?
Elem: I want a remote control hot wheels.
Cecilia: I want a pink convertible.

Santa checking to see if everybody has been good this year...Elem super interested, Cecilia super interested....Nate-not so much.

Trying to get a pic of all three in their Christmas best was a nightmare, so this is what you get: Merry Christmas from Cecilia, Elem, and Nate!

These 2 however, are BFFs till the end, love/hate relationship often times, but the majority of the time is LOVE.

Trip to visit Santa was sooo much fun, and perfect for Elem. He loved Santa, he loved running around the mall, loved riding all the kiddie rides, loved eating dip n dots and chick fil a for lunch. Christmas trip success for sure!

Elem's favorite Christmas Song as of now...You better watch out, you better not cry, you better not pout I'm telling you why, Santa Clause is coming to town!!! Love to hear him sing this song. His sweet little singing voice is to die for.
