You'd better watch out You'd better not cry

You better not pout I'm tellin' you why. Santa Claus is coming to Princeton!

Santa's helper aka Joe was telling the kids they had better hurry up and eat because Santa was almost there!

My sister in law Cindy was ready, but I'm not so sure she had been good!

But she quickly jumped on Santa's lap when it was her turn and promptly started spitting out all of the things she wanted for Christmas. And they were all pink!

Hey Santa? Can you bring me a skateboard too? I almost forgot that until my cousin Caleb shouted out that he wanted one. Oh, and that color needs to be pink.

Cousin McKenzie wanted a skateboard too. I don't know what color she wanted...probably pink, ya think?

Then it was the twins' turn.

Of course that was for the adults only....and for picture purposes.

Heh Sis, let's ask for skateboards!

No, let's ask to get back to Momma's lap.

Santa handed out presents for all the good kids. The twins got the first 4 gifts and Santa was afraid that the other four had not been good enough.

But finally the real good list was updated and all the kids got gifts.

I think some of the kids were starting to get a bit worried though. Actually my sister in law Beverly had the gifts set up that way. But the looks were priceless.

I am thankful to be in such a big and loving family. Joe has had some issues with his sisters for a number of years but thankfully they have been put to rest. Life is just too short.

Steph, I have not put them on my flickr yet. I will try to do that tonight. In fact, I might just do an entire post to the love of your life!

Great pictures, TB. Joe should hire out as a Santa for the season. He could make some real money.

Well done.

Isn't it great to have little kids around for Christmas. It makes everything so special. They are all so innocent and wonderful. I can't wait until my granddaughter opens her presents this year.
