Santa Pictures {2015}

As she does every Christmas, Lola (my mom) took the kids to see Santa at our local mall.

Here are the pictures from their meeting. 

I think that they turned out adorable! 

You might recognize Evan's outfit from last year's Santa pictures. What can I say? Evan loves how sharp he looks in this outfit:)


I think crying Santa pictures are so cute, but my mother does not, so Evan had a 3-year Santa dry spell.

Merry Christmas!!!

Bake Day with Nana & Aunt Sara {2015}

Chloe and Evan continued their annual Christmas cookie baking tradition with Nana and Aunt Sara!

Here was a little sneak into their day! (Photos courtesy of Nana)

The kids made this cookie jar for their Nana earlier in the month . We had a Christmas gathering at Aunt Dana and Uncle Tommy's the night before, so they gave it to her there. It reads, " Nana's Kitchen: Where memories are made and grandkids are spoiled."

I asked Chloe why her apron was covered in flour, while Evan's apron was clean. She told me that she did the hard work, while Evan just sprinkled the cookies. You can't see it because it's covered by the apron, but Evan's shirt reads "Official Cookie Tester"! I guess he was taking his title seriously;) Ha!

This was Nana's snowman that she won in a raffle. It almost made it home with us on Christmas Day, but Daddy vetoed the idea. Once we get all our Christmas stuff stored away in the attic, maybe we can convince him that there is just enough room for a snowman;)

As you can see, the kids enjoyed their day with Nana and Aunt Sara. I love that they have this tradition and spend time making these memories. They will cherish it forever.
