Here Comes Santa Claus

Santa arrived by jet at the Kids Christmas party at work. Above is Vivi's face as she watches Santa walk down the air stairs and into the hangar. After she was able to speak again, she turned to me and said "Well, that's not something you see everyday."

Vivi spent a great deal of time writing a letter to Santa. She really worked hard on it.

No one was feeling very well. The hangar was too loud for Vivi and Zoey was running a fever (Mother of the Year did not know this until we were home). We left without getting to sit on Santa's lap. The girls did get their gifts, though. And I got to see the joy in Vivi's eyes when she saw Santa de-plane.

Oh, the look for wonder on your youngest ones face. So precious and sweet! Seems like yesterday I was doing the same thing. Now my girl is 24 but still looks forward to "Santa" :)

They grow so fast. I always wonder what I will do when I have no little girls around? Will I still feel useful? Hmmm....I see you have a full life, I think there is hope for me.

The older they get, the more they will need you. There are bumps in the road (around the age 14-15 is when I experienced it). Believe me, you will always feel useful. You have a lot to look forward to, especially when your daughters become your best adult friends!
