Santa Claus is Comin' to Town!

Santa already paid a visit to Winchester and we wouldn't have missed it for the world. I was not sure how the kids would react--Nicolaus met santa last year but certainly doesn't remember and Carleigh is such a Mommy's girl. Both kids ADORED him! Carleigh couldn't keep the big grin off her face and Nicolaus just talked up a storm. He also thought it was pretty neat he and Santa share the same name. Seeing their pure joy is a moment I will always treasure and one that makes me so happy to be their Mom.

Fall Getaway

Over a long weekend in November we met up with the Soza family for a Fall getaway (and to celebrate Nicolaus' second birthday. We stayed in a cabin at Westmoreland State Park while the Sozas stayed in their camper.

We could not have asked for better weather and were able to enjoy nearby Stratford Hall as well as get in some hiking. We were introduced to Geocaching which was great fun and a pastime we will surely try our hand at again. Tammy even found a shark's tooth at Fossil beach!

No we don't have a case of cabin fever, just good friends having a crazy good time!
