Santa Baby!

Merry Christmas from our little Santa Baby!

Those pictures were taken in Maui (where our little beach santa was VERY popular among other beach-goers), and this one was taken in Lethbridge (and yes, Santa's beard is a WEE bit over the top, and the whole situation left Fraser a tad confused and concerned)...

While we're in the holiday spirit, let me share THIS delightful Christmassy equation:

20lbs of candy (no joke) + great friends with newborns + my amazing parents and their home = Gingerbread Village 2011!

Sooooo focused...

(There really WAS a ton of joy and laughter, I promise... these photographs just captured our more determined sides!)

Well, the determination paid off!

Glen's creation...

He wanted to be sure that we highlighted his not-at-all-ridiculous snowman...

Natalie. Ohhhhh Natalie. She claimed that she didn't have a creative bone in her body, then she proceeded to put the rest of us to shame with THIS... complete with retaining wall, raised flower bed and a front deck WITH CHAIRS AND PEOPLE...

Nicholas' candy haven...

Chelsea's masterpiece...

Lowell's respected work of art...

And mine...

La village!

By the way, we may have QUITE a bit of leftover candy (apparently such things happen when one purchases 20 lbs of candy), so if anyone in the area is in the 'last-minute-gingerbread-house-decorating-bizz', contact us and it's yours!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!
