the mall

This morning we went to the mall. It was so nice to have some space to stroll around. I miss my walks now that it is bitterly cold out. The kids did good and Hans got to meet Santa, though he did not give him a hug or a kiss:) This morning he asked me if he could. I discouraged the kiss, but said a hug was probably ok:)

Such funny faces! I think Anya was a bit overwhelmed and just taking it all in. She didn't have much to say and I didn't even try to sit her on Santa's lapp:)

Hans and I had a little fun this morning:)

Anya really enjoys the Christmas tree. Hans still does his own bit of touching and breaking, except he is much more sneaky. Anya, I can tell when Anya touches the tree even if I am in the kitchen: The bells ring, I am so thankful I got large jingle bells as tree ornaments oh so long ago. They act as a booby trap for toddlers!!

he he, so silly!

Anya, happy about her christmas cookie, and getting her picture taken:)

goodies like these require great focus to be enjoyed!!
