Santa Claus 2012

Winston had no qualms with Santa Clause this year.  He slowly made his way to SC's lap on his own, sat down, and told him he wanted a dress-up treasure chest with a Buzz Lightyear costume.
Lizzie was a bit timid.  She held on to Santa's helper's hand like her life depended on it.  But once she finally sat on SC's lap, she was fine.  
In fact, the more she saw Santa, the more she wanted to sit by him.  
She walked over to the big guy, climbed in the sleigh, and just sat by him for a minute, just like they were old friends.

Happy New Year

We spent a low-key New Year's Eve at my in-laws.  SheShe and Papa make every time we come over feel like a special occasion (which is all the time!).
Sherry made a delicious dinner and dessert, including 'undone chocolate' that was amazing.  
Banging pots and pans to ring in the new year (at about 8:30 p.m.)
Lizzie insisted on making SheShe and me lie down on the couch.  "Go seep!" she'd say.  She's kinda bossy.
