Reindeer Games

We took the girls to get their Santa pictures (in their matching Christmas dresses!) a few weeks ago.  We had heard some good things about a local Nursery in our area that had a great Santa, and reindeer for the kids to pose with, and a camel!

When we got to the nursery, we discovered the Santa did not have a real beard (pet peeve of mine), the camel was sleeping, and the photos would take over a week before they could be picked up.  I needed the photos that same day for a scrapbook project I was working on, so we decided to head over to the mall instead.


Before we left, however, we did get some cute pictures of the girls meeting Blitzen.  This was the best shot, and it may be our Christmas Card photo - assuming I get around to making cards this year!  Sammie was being so protective and loving of her sister.  She was holding her and whispering sweet things to her while we took the photos.  I'm so proud of my girls - and thankful to the Lord for blessing Dave and me with such great kids!

PERFECT Christmas card photo. The girls look precious. You can tell how much Sammie loves her new little sister just by looking at the expression on her face.
