today grandpa went to wal-mart with the kids to let them pick out their christmas present from him. when i was a kid he used to take me to toys r us and let me pick out what i wanted for christmas from them. as a kid, that was one of the coolest things ever. i still remember one of the things i got for christmas from them. i got to pick out this awesome lego ship. it is still in my room at home!

remember this? last year the kids were terrified of santa.

this year they warmed up to him very quickly. when he walked in they wouldn't even let him get in the door they wanted to show him their christmas presents from pop pop. then we told them to sit in his lap and tell him what they wanted for christmas. mason let me put him in santas lap, but was very very shy. he sat there eyes downcast whispering. sawyer decided she would just stand there and tell him what she wanted. she told him she wanted a flashlight and a baby brother. then santa said well i can't bring one of those on the sleigh, you will have to talk to your mom and dad. and that was the end of that... she was DEVASTATED. she started screaming and wanted nothing to do with santa. i made eric sit her in santas lap for the obligatory picture with santa.
