Santa and Sledding






















We were getting ready to go up north last Friday and there was a knock at the door. Look who showed up for a special visit! Lauren was jumping and squirming and giggling and Sarah was quiet but pleased. Santa was visiting the little school in our neighborhood and my neighbor thought that my girls would like to say hi. So there he was, full of life and very real. I, of course, asked him for something from Tiffany's and offered him a cookie. He declined. The cookie, that is. We'll see about Tiffany's. I have not been naughty this year. Really. What?


















Here is a shot of the sledding area. You can see the San Francisco Peaks in the distance. Brrrr. See the wind blowing the snow off the mountain?!


















Lauren Paige. Happy to roll around in the snow and talk to herself.






















I absolutely LOVE this picture of Sarah because it shows in her face and stance how tough she is. Doesn't she look kewl, broken nose and all. At the end of the day she took a jump that scared me half to death and I went running toward her to make sure she was OK. All of the other people sledding actually applauded her jump. Isn't that funny? They were watching her.



















Love this photo.

How did Santa fit through your door?
Oh wait- he comes down the chimney.
Never mind

He was huge but I am also standing one step lower than him.
