I didn’t get a picture of the milk but Hanna wanted to leave Santa Chocolate milk since that’s what Max and Ruby left him

Onto Christmas morning….

Caty asked Santa for a Password Journal – a pretty cool gift if you ask me.  She had to program a password and it only opens to her voice.

Hanna asked for a Scooter and Santa got her a Minnie Mouse one!

... a password journal. I love it :o) She's growing up Momma!
Looks like you all had a very blessed Christmas.
.... and I LOVE Flat Stanley! Such a cute story/concept. If Caden's class never does a "Flat Stanley" we may just have to do it on our own.
