I've been a little behind with blogging - and once I started the countdown I was all focused on that! ...but, we have done a few fun things the past couple weeks as we got closer and closer to today!!! the Santa pics are from a "Breakfast with Santa" event here on the base - it was fun! we started in a long line and saw Santa. it's pretty cool, cause it's free and you get to take your own pics ... but also that makes it a little stressful with four kids and a mom who wants a great photo! I did my best, though, and at least we have some Santa pics! there was also some dance recitals going on - we enjoyed that while we ate! then we went and the kids each did a little craft, very fun for them! we got a free bag of caramel corn on our way out! we've never done this, but I've always wanted to - and I'm so glad we did!
