Fun before Christmas

These are a late, but here are some pictures of when we went up to Indianapolis at the beginning of December to Indianapolis downtown and our Childrens Museum which has been a lot of fun to have a membership this past year. They had a fun Christmas area that the kids loved seeing Santa. Guess I won't say they all loved it, Megan was scared of Santa. As you can see in the pictures, she tried to get away from him everytime we got to see him.

At the Indianapolis Childrens Museum at Christmas time.

This was such a fun slide they had in place of the stairs that are usually there. I took Megan, Whitney and Jackson down along with me. Megan got a little scared.

As you can see, Megan is crying. Jackson loved seeing Santa this year. Whitney probably didn't know what was going on. However, I totally remember little Jackson so scared of Santa a couple years ago.

We went to a parade they had in our town. Jackson and Megan have hot chocolate smeared all over their lips as you can see. It was so cold, we had to get some. It gets so cold here, colder than Utah.

My little Santa and reindeer all ready for Christmas. Two cute girls playing together.

Jackson and Megan were so excited when it snowed for the first time that they just had to go outside to play in it. I never realized how much work it takes to get kids all dressed to go out in the snow to stay warm, till now. It was great for them to get out though since it had been so cold and we hadn't been able to go outside for a while. They were dying to get out and I believe at the time I was excited for them to get out too.

We built a mini snowman with the little snow that fell. It didn't last long, but it was great fun while it lasted.

We had a Ward Christmas party and of course we had a special visitor. I think our Santa is a pretty good one that does it every year. He pulls it off pretty good with his white beard and all. He even brings along Mrs. Claus.

Dad had to get Megan to come this close to Santa this time. Maybe next year she won't be so scared.

Amber & Dave,

I didn't see these fun pictures when I looked at the other Christmas one. What a riot that children's museum is. A kid's paradise. They are lucky kids to see Santa twice, and even Mrs. Claus. They looked like the real one,(ward one) Darling pics of the kids and Santa and beautiful tree and carriage. Love you all. Mom Shelley
