Merry Christmas!

 
Since that time is nearing, just thought I'd pop in one last time to say Merry Christmas to you all!  As you can see, this is the year we finally have a good Santa photo!  You can take a look here to see some of the not-so-good ones from years past- some are quite funny!
 
 The kids were even all brave enough to talk to Santa this year!
 
 
 
 In addition to seeing Santa to request gifts, we also did something to give back a bit.
 
We signed up to be Salvation Army bell-ringers!
And I have to say that we were quite good at it- we really pulled out the big guns...
 
 I mean, maybe you could pass up a handsome seven-year-old...,
 
 ...and possibly even a cute five-year-old...,
 
...but could you really pass up this adorable three-year-old?  Most people couldn't- ha ha! 
 
It's been a fun holiday season so far, and we're all getting excited about Christmas next week.  It's just so much more fun with kids, isn't it?  I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season, and I'll be back to show you any exciting gifts I get (can you tell I'm crossing my fingers for a "new" dollhouse, maybe?!?). 
 
Hugs and blessings to you all!
 
 
(I'm linking up with The Paper Mama for her "red" photo challenge!)

Hi Corey! That is a really good Santa photo! I have one good one and one funny crying baby one. My 11 and 8 yr old did NOT want to talk to him this year. They knew it wasn't the "real" Santa...haha!!But my 3 yr old did and was not afraid at all. I wouldn't be able to walk past any of your 3 adorable bell ringers! They are just too cute! I hope you have a wonderful Christmas with your sweet family and that you find something fun under the tree!

What a precious thing for you and your family to do! Your children will never forget ringing those bells - and all the laughter and joy when people stopped by and gave! How fun!

Hello! I have only discovered you by accident, and am beyond thrilled I have. I see a few of my very favorite friends in your comment section. What a joyful blog you have with so many projects to inspire creativity. Your family is so sweet. The Salvation Army is my absolute favorite charity. Good Job Mom! Elizabeth
