Preparing for Mr Claus

Getting ready for Christmas was a big deal this year! Daxton is starting to understand who Santa Claus is and why we celebrate the birth of our Savior. He loved decorating the Christmas tree and putting the treats in our Christmas countdown. 

 This kid HATES wearing clothes! He gets dressed at LEAST 4 times a day. He insists on having ALL of his clothes off when he goes potty. Thats when I caught him decorating before he got dressed again... Oh Dax... 

At the beginning of December we had a Christmas party at Greg and Tiffs house. Grandpa Glade had the magic touch and got Faith to sleep. That little girl is sooo picky about who holds her and especially who puts her to sleep (she LOVES her crib and insists on being in it when she sleeps) She let this sweet man feed her a bottle and she actually slept for quite awhile in his arms. I guess she knows what a great guy he is! 
Dax and I built a Ginger Bread house at the party.. Pretty impressive huh? :)  
 We also got a chance in early December to eat Breakfast with the big guy himself! 
 Faith was a big fan of Jolly old St. Nick...
Dax wasn't quite as big of a fan though. He did have a chance to tell Mr Claus that he wanted a blue tractor though and he was happy to receive a candy cane too. 

Most of our Christmas activities were early in the month so we had a chance to relax and enjoy the season this year. It was such a nice relief.

Jane had the same reaction to Santa.... she would just hide in my shoulder. Maybe stranger danger is big at this age
