Today was such a special day and the boys were so excited! Last year after visiting the State Museum so many time during the holidays and becoming friends with so many of the workers the boys were asked to be the children to greet Santa when he arrived this year. Of course they said yes, and could not wait for the big day. They were able to stand inside the gated area and walked to Santa as he got off the helicopter. We were so close to the helicopter. They gave a big white bear to Santa and a smaller plaid bear to Mrs. Claus and Raggedy Ann. The boys then stayed with Santa and Mrs. Claus as they greeted the crowd and walked upstairs with them to Santa's house. They were the first visitors of the season. Baylor and Cooper both made special presents for Santa and he was so sweet with the boys. He put their presents on the mantle and hung the ornaments on the tree. Baylor worked so hard on his gifts and his card. The night before he worked on a big Welcome Santa banner that he held as Santa was landing. It was so cute. Baylor was adorable and took his job very seriously. What a special day and such a fun memory. We all had a great time and enjoyed the day.
