Christmas Wonderland

Every year we head to Bass Pro Shops to visit Santa Claus. They have the best setting for pictures, a log cabiny feel and the same Santa every year. Each year they have grown their Christmas operation and now it is a Christmas Wonderland!

Here the kids are dressed and ready to go. Notice Adalyn's wonderful smile?

Here are Ethan and Adalyn at the coloring station. It was great until Adalyn starting throwing crayons. The line for Santa was really, really long (free pictures!) so she was already starting to get bored.

Ethan playing with the remote control monster trucks. Poor little guy stood there for a long time waiting for a turn and people cutting in front of him before I told him to just ask for a turn. He needs to learn to be just a tad bit less shy!

Adalyn watching the train go by.

Me and Adalyn about half way to Santa. Can you tell the smile is disappearing? Naptime is quickly approaching at this point.

Even less of a smile...

Really not having it at this point but getting so close to Santa!!

Look we can see him!

We made it!! Adalyn was about to break out crying until Santa handed her a candy cane. Candy works with this girl every time! Ethan was sure to tell Santa his wish list, but forgot to mention he wanted a Nerf Gun. I assured him Santa would read the list he left in his stocking :)

After our visit with Santa we headed to lunch then the grocery store. Daddy bought the kids each a ring pop and then the guy at the bakery gave Adalyn a cookie and Ethan a doughnut- can we say sugar overload????

That cookie is as big as her head!!
Merry Christmas everyone :)

I didn't know Bass Pro has a Santa with free pictures! He's great! And your kids are adorable.

I generally take the kids to the Chaffin's Barn Santa show each year. They can go see Santa afterward in the lobby and he's fantastic. I always get a picture and it's ALWAYS better than the professional one I get at Green Hills Mall. We didn't go to Chaffin's Barn this year and I am kicking myself!
