Trip to Santa and a Giveaway

Hope everyone is having a great week! Last weekend we went once again to visit The Legendary Santa with McKayla and this year Mason. The tradition started when my grandparents took my Mom, Aunt and Uncle to see him. Once we were born my Mom, Dad and eventually sisters and cousins would all go and wait in line early in the morning so we would be one of the first ones in to see him come down the Chimney. This is and always will be one of my favorite memories growing up.

Lindsey and Leslie were the extra early birds and got there to wait in line for everyone. I rode with Mama and we left town about 6:15 in the morning to make our hour and a half drive.

The next group was Chris, his Mom Trish and Mason.

Then Michael brought McKayla

Look at that sweet face!

Now it is time to go in and see him coming down the chimney! If you look close you can see his boots (sorry the picture is not very good).

Leslie and Mason waiting for their turn. I think Leslie was far more excited than Mason for his first trip to see Santa.
Once he got up their he did the same thing his Mom used to always do... CRY!

 Having fun on the train ride.

This year's Legendary Santa ornament... of course we all had to get one for our tree.

Now I just have to throw this in it is just to funny not to. On the way to see Santa we passed by a restaurant and this was the sign on the side... I could not stop laughing! Kind of hard to read but the middle sign says FREE SMELLS... Seriously?????
