2010 Visit from Santa Claus

On this past Saturday we had a family party at our friends house in Morton. They were having “Santa” visit their house and letting all the kids sit on his lap and tell him what they wanted for Christmas. We also brought a present for each kid and they put it in Santa’s bag of gifts to give out! It was a lot of fun. Alyssa was the very first person to sit on Santa’s lap. I honestly thought she was going to freak out but she went up there and did it like a brave little girl 🙂 Then Drew was next. He of course was fine. The only odd thing about Drew’s discuss was Santa asked him, “Do you play baseball?” And he answered NO. lol ok whatever. Bryce was last to go up and he went on Santa’s lap like a trooper as well. He looked a little nervous but what do you expect. They each got a little gift and a candy cane and loved the whole thing. Great idea!!! Check out the pictures from the event below:

First Christmas in the books

The first of like 6 Christmas get togethers is in the books.  We had the immediate Peterson Christmas on Sunday.  The family all met for Church and then went out to Steve and Darla’s for lunch and fun.  It was awesome because we just did pizza, chicken and other appetizer stuff.  Lots and lots of great food and very low stress on the day.

They did a new tradition where each family had to do an “activity”.  We sang the J-E-S-U-S song as a family.  Drew, Alyssa and Bryce got tons and tons of presents.  Great, just what we need.  A couple of the hot items were Drew’s spy gear and his “cot”.  And Alyssa really loved her dress up kit and makeup.  Bryce liked his stack up cars/trains.

Enjoy the pictures.
