Santa Claus

We went to Sonora the other day and were driving downtown when we saw Santa's workshop on the side of the road. Santa and Mrs. Claus were in there and so we had to stop and say hello. Landon told Santa he wanted a chainsaw, a jack hammer and a race track that goes over the door so his race cars and go zoom. Santa got a kick out of the jackhammer and chainsaw! He also asked Santa how he got there since we were at the mall last week and saw Santa there. He said, "I thought you were at the mall!" This has been a really fun Christmas season- it's the first year that Landon is really old enough to get excited and have an understanding of Christmas. He learned in church last week about the angel that told Mary she was going to have a baby and then about the star that led the Shepherd's to baby Jesus. Every night now he wants to know where the brightest star is that will show him where Jesus is. Christmas through the eyes of a child brings a whole new meaning and excitement to the real reason why we celebrate the birth of our Savior!
