Visiting Santa-Past and Present

I love taking the kids to visit Jolly Ole Saint Nick! It’s something we’ve done every year since Griffin was born! Yes we teach our children the real meaning of Christmas. Yes our boys know that Santa is not real. Yes we let them believe in the magic of Santa. Josh and I both grew up this way and we turned out just fine. Well, I did. HAHA!

Kidding Lover!

One thing I noticed when I was gathering all of these is that Griffin has never cried when sitting on Santa’s lap!

We’ll start from the beginning!

Here’s Griffin in 2002! Sweet little guy! He was about 6 weeks old.
