We had our family photos taken a couple of weeks ago. I was thrilled with how they came out. Kids were in good spirits and the weather allowed us not to freeze during our outdoor photo shoot. What’s really awesome is that the picture of Grant kissing Maria was not staged. They really do love each other and tell me often that they are each other’s best friend.
We also went to see Santa who made at stop at my college alma mater. On the way there Maria assured me that she was not going to be scared of Santa this year. However, as we waited in line, the closer we got, the more she grew hesitant and Grant followed her lead. Neither would sit on his lap, but both managed to squeak out what they wanted…a big horsey for Maria and a rock truck for Grant. On our way home I asked what their favorite part about the evening was and they both declared Santa. They make me laugh.
