Holiday Season Fun!

We have been having so much fun this Christmas season so far. Having Sam with us makes everything that much more festive. Where to begin?

This is the Sam's first visit with Santa. This was at my parent's ward party. He seemed okay with the whole thing.

We went to Disneyland twice when it was all decked out for Christmas. I forgot my camera the first time and the 2nd time I didn't realize until later that I don't have any festive pictures. You can kind of see the castle in the back, looking all snowy and pretty...oh well.

I think Sam wants to know what this pirate is all about.

Sam loves being on shoulders. He wouldn't have it any other way all day long. He is such a rascal! Every once in a while he would pier down below to check out who was holding him. This particular time it turned into an all out wrestling match.

 So this is the first ride where Sam had his own seat and seat belt. The ride was the Golden Zephyr at California adventure. He was nervous at first...

...but as you can he had the time of his life!

Hank was Santa at our Ward's Christmas Party. Oh my goodness he was such an amazing Santa! He was all jolly and none of the kids recognized him. There were of course a few older boys who were out to expose Santa's true identity while Hank was getting ready. It was a really fun night.

Oh and I was Mrs. Claus  and Sam was Baby Claus.

Look how cute!!!
This was a really sweet moment. The primary in our ward had a special program for Christmas. We were asked to be Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus. Here we are getting ready to go into the primary room. Sam is asleep...little darling.

He stayed asleep through the whole program! Through all the singing and talking.
Sorry about the upside down pic...he is so precious.

We've had so much fun already and I just can't wait for the big day!!
