Well, it's not a white Christmas today but we did get plenty of snow a week or so ago:
I am not a big fan of cold weather, so I am not disappointed that it will be warm and sunny today. I grew up with tropical Christmases and Santas on surfboards. Speaking of which, Roo has never been into sitting on Santa's lap. Take this picture from a couple of years ago. She talked about going to see Santa for days and then flipped out when actually confronted by the old guy. She was totally fine moments after being removed from his vicinity.
This year, she's way more comfortable with Santa. She was a little shy at first but then regaled him with song, stories, etc. She even told him "my brother is really good at drawing!" which I thought was super sweet.
Jasper is still a little skeptical about the old dude in the red suit…
I am writing this waiting for Roo to wake up so we can start the day. Jasper has been up for two hours already but seems totally non-plussed about the presents surrounding the tree. I am sure that things will be different next year!
