Speaking of Jolly Olde St. Nick...
We visited Santa's workshop at school last night. The boys enjoyed some cookies and punch, and made a Christmas wreath ornament to hang on our tree by threading buttons onto a pipe cleaner.
I was really impressed that the boys could do it by themselves. They were itty bitty button holes - much like threading thread into the eye of a needle. Ryan in particular just whipped right through it.
The boys also had a moment to visit with Santa. Connor hopped right up in his lap and told Santa that he wanted toy fish for Christmas. Ryan was a bit more hesitant, and had to be pried away from daddy. But even he eventually had a seat on Santa's lap and even managed a smile at the camera while visions of the giant race car he told Santa he wanted this Christmas raced in his head.
