Tonight we took the boys to see Santa Claus at the mall! They were excited! We ate dinner at the food court before meeting the white bearded man.
I was a little worried how Colton would do but he did a little better than I thought. He was cool looking at Santa from afar but as soon as we got close he freaked a little and only wanted mommy. He warmed up to him with a high five, then I picked him up and put him on Santa's lap.
Here's the result! I'll take it! =)
Ryan loved Santa and told him he wanted a watch for Christmas and some trucks. Colton said he wanted a train - after a little prompting.
After Santa we took Colton to build-a-bear. Ryan made a puppy dog named Lucky a long time ago. We thought it was the perfect time for Colton to build-a-bear. He picked out Rudolph. I tried to convince him to get a bear or puppy but he wanted Rudolph so that's what we got. Colton loves him and was so excited! The best part is his nose blinks red.
What a wonderful night full of sweet Christmas memories!
