Merry Christmas Eve!

From Pinterest, I'm pretty sure he's the real Santa Claus!
 I still believe in the magic of Santa Claus.  
At some point in time our children asked if Santa was real and even added they didn't really believe in him. 
My reply was this..
  Santa is most definitely real. Part of his magic is that he has the power to make himself look different at different times of our lives.

When you are small children, Santa Claus looks like a jolly man in a red suit making a wild sleigh ride across the night sky. 
When you get a little bit older Santa may look more like your parents. 
When you're even older...oddly enough Santa may look like your friends or even look like yourself.
Whatever physical form he takes throughout our lives, rest assured that his spirit, the spirit of giving and loving unconditionally, is indeed real.
You just have to believe.

Here's to the magic!
Happy Christmas to you and your family.
I hope Santa Claus is good to you this year, however he appears.

The Making of our Christmas Photo

I love our cute Christmas photo this year!
I thought some of the other pictures were really funny so I put together a little behind the scene blooper set...

Me: Beau, Tippet look at me...who wants a treat! Treat, treat, TREAT!

Me: Tippet, Beatrice look! Treat! 
Oh gosh, the door is open...argh..

Tippet: No treat is worth this.  
Beau: Where did you say to look for a treat?
Beatrice: Did someone say sit?

Beatrice: Cheese!
Tippet: Why do we have a puppy?

Me: Tippet, you'll regret that look every time you see this picture! 
   Beau: I'm so bored of this.

Beau: Beatrice ate my treat! 
Beatrice: Yes, I did!
Tippet: I really don't understand why we have a puppy.

Beau: You can't make me look.

Beau and Beatrice: Is that a bag of treats on top of mom's head?
Tippet: I just can't take any more of this.

Beau and Beatrice: Let's get that bag of treats!
Tippet: I knew this was a bad idea.
Me: I'm beginning to think you're right, Tippet.

57 photos later a Christmas miracle!
With Gratitude,
Beauregard, Beatrice, and Tippet
