Growing up with Santa

Dec 19, 2011

No mat­ter how old San­ta’s grand­kids are they’re nev­er too old to have a pho­to tak­en with San­ta. This year, Laren (SIL) and Ter­ri my old­est daugh­ter went to Beau­mont for Thanks­giv­ing. This meant they were able to get their pho­to tak­en with San­ta.

I just love, love, love it. And then of course there are the hilar­i­ous top­ics of dis­cus­sion. Today’s card made me laugh out loud. Buster is our dog and Zeus is her dog.
