Here Comes Santa Claus

We finally had a successful trip to see Santa! We had done the sleeping baby picture (she was only 2 months old), crying picture, the Bailey sitting on mommy's lap with Santa behind us...but this year, my big girl actually sat on his lap and talked to him!

We have been talking about Santa for what seems like forever. Every day she either asks me something about him or reminds me that Santa likes it when we share and when we're nice to our friends. We also talked about how you had to sit on his lap and tell him what you want for Christmas in order to get those things...I think that's what really sealed the deal.

Aunt Brittany gave us the Elf on a Shelf book, and that has helped too. Our elf is named Charlie. He has landed all over our little house, and it's a good thing that it's almost Christmas because Charlie is running out of places to sit! She gets so excited every morning looking for him around the house.

The first morning she found Charlie.

Where Charlie was this morning.

Since we started talking about Santa, Bailey has been saying that she was going to ask for a Belle dress and Belle glass slippers. That's all she wanted Santa to bring her. Easy enough. I made sure we had both. Then, the day before we make our trip to go see him (which was December 17th), she decides she wants one more thing: a Christmas puzzle. Okay, that should be easy enough to find, right? Wrong. The only Christmas puzzles I could find were the regular ones with the tiny pieces. Nick ended up finding one on Amazon and it only cost $5. In order to get it here by Christmas though? An extra $12. But, she'll be happy.

Twelve bucks for shipping?! That's crazy. We've been lucky with Colin's wish list staying the same. I must admit I've been amazed that it hasn't changed each time.

Way to go Bailey for sitting on Santa's lap! Such a big girl (:
