Mine on Monday: Santa Baby...

We took our little family to "Magic in the Market" at Pike Place Market over the weekend...and introduced Aspen to Santa for the first time.

It didn't go over so well.

But it sure is one of those pictures to remember! Doesn't every child need a picture of themselves freaking out on Santa's knee?

After we wiped away the tears and calmed our poor child down (her brother got super shy around the Big Man, too - although he was really excited about the candy cane Santa gave him)...we just enjoyed the festivities. The music and the lights were a marvelous way to get the magic of the season ignited in all of us.

Stay tuned later this week for a wonderful list of advent ideas -- outings, activities, and crafts to enjoy with your family on the countdown to Christmas...

Yes everyone must have a Santa freak out picture! Mason's was last year and I have a strange feeling it will happen this year too! Aspen is gorgeous in this picture though so all is well!
