I can't believe that it has now been over a month since my last blog...I don't know if that has ever happened before.
It goes without saying that we have been uber busy, but we wrapped up our last photo session and all of the editing is just about done. I am hoping to back-date blog post within the next two weeks so in 5 years I don't wonder what in the world we had going on this entire month!

Yesterday we took Eli to an amazing Christmas party to meet Santa. This was our second year to go to the party- and it was just as beautiful this year as last.
(I am still going back and forth between the whole 'Santa' issue at Christmas, and I am planning a whole blog about it. I would love to hear what others have to think about it...but until then...)

I have no idea who told Eli about Santa or who he is, but he can call him out with the best of little kids. Anything red, white and fuzzy can be related to Santa. I think it was my mom, but I am not sure. I just know that one day out of the blue in early December he started pointing out Santa.

He was very excited to see Santa at the party. He looked a little unsure when daddy put him in Santa's lap, but that has been all he has been talking about since then! It is really cute...

My parents joined us for the party this year!

Santa's sleigh was outside...scratch that. Eli insisted that it was a boat, not a sleigh. Silly mommy. It took a lot of convincing to get him out of the boat.

And for fun, here is Eli last year at the same party with the same Santa...
