Santa Claus is Coming to Town!!!

Actually, Santa already came ... to our house! Our awesome local support group, Tu Nidito, arranged for Santa to come to our house since Jessica can't go to the mall to see him. Jess has to be careful not to get sick and being at the mall and around lots of other kids could cause her a lot of problems. Santa has come to our house for the last 3 or 4 years to find out what the kids want for Christmas. This year he came in an eye-catching firetruck! This firetruck was all decked out with lights, Christmas music, Christmas decorations and even a toy train. Here are some pictures of our wonderful evening.

Many of our neighbors came out to see the firetruck and realized that Santa was there. Here are a few of our friends with Jessica, Austin, Brandon, Justen and Santa. Look at the plastic reindeer and Santa all lit up on top of the firetruck!

Jessica had gone through her toys and picked out a few things to give to Bree (the little girl in the picture). After Santa Left, Bree and her mom came over and Jessica gave Bree her gifts. Jessica and Bree are such good friends! Brandon and Bree's mom, Cathy, enjoy the visit too.

I got goose bumps looking at the pictures. How exciting! I'm glad Jess was able to give Santa her wish and I hope that all of her wishes as well as the rest of your family come true.

Merry Christmas,
Mary

Samantha, I was just thinking about you! lol! Merry Christmas to you too!

About the link you gave me: That looks like MY cat and MY CM stuff! LOL! I wonder if Charlie would hold still long enough for me to put all that stuff on him and take a picture. He will usually leave stuff on him for awhile if we just leave him alone after putting it on him. lol!
