This week we took Merit for her first visit with Santa. My sweet mom (who has been in town all week helping me...she is wonderful and beautiful and a true lifesaver...) and I were waiting on Kevan to get off of work and meet us.
At one point, he got up to take a break and noticed Merit...it was love at first sight for both of them. He motioned for us to come over, and he immediately began talking sweetly to her, saying, "I love you" over and over.
Merit reached out for him and he held her and told her how much he loved her. It was so sweet! When he handed her back to me, she reached back for him. I think she won him over! Her stocking will for sure be the fullest at our house this year.
She had about all the Christmas cheer she could take by the end of our time with Santa.
In other news, after designing almost fifteen cards for others (yay!), I finally finished designing our own Christmas card today. I had wanted to post it here before Christmas, but since they most likely won't be in the mail until, well, who knows at this point, you'll just have to wait! I know you are dying of anticipation.
Merry Christmas! We are starting our journey to Texas tonight!
