MISSION SANTA CLAUS:

ACCOMPLISHED
Last night right after my workout at the gym, Brooks and I met up with Adam (who got off work a little early, yes!) to visit our sweet friend Cyndi (Adam's second mom growing up) at her office where they had Santa Claus :) I was so excited to bring Brooks!...even though he doesn't understand the concept of Santa at all, I've looked forward to getting this classic photo for sweet memories. Honestly I expected a sassy look from Brooks, or tears, or for him to slither out of Santa's arms onto the floor (I mean, at first he could barely handle my wig this past Halloween, and Santa's beautiful beard is pretty intense;)...but instead he sat there, candy cane in hand, with a stoic look for about 30 seconds while we tried to get a smile out of him. We sang Wiggles' songs and played peek-a-boo...but you know what worked? Saying "Ready?....Set?..." then Brooks proudly said "GO!" followed by that cheeky grin you see in the first photo ;)

He even gave Father Christmas a few high-fives!...probably scoring brownie-points so he'll get some gummy snacks in his stocking. ha!

Spiritual Health:
"Nevertheless they did fast and pray oft, and did wax stronger and stronger in their humility, and firmer and firmer in the faith of Christ, unto the filling their souls with joy and consolation, yea, even to the purifying and the sanctification of their hearts, which sanctification cometh because of their yielding their hearts unto God." -- Helaman 3:35

Physical Health:
Relaxing today...lots of stretching involved though :)

Oh my gosh... That picture of Brooks and Santa Clause is so sticking cute!! We haven't taken Avery to see Santa yet, but that is a definite for this year. Hopefully she likes Santa and doesn't try to tug on his beard.

You're lucky... I know a lot of moms out there who aren't so successful at introducing Santa to their kids. My kids have never really had a problem with him. Thank goodness. Brooks is too cute!
