Sam and Santa!

Our ward party was last night, where I ate till I was sick (the food was so good!)! We ate, Santa came, and we watched President Monson's talk from the Christmas devotional. It was a wonderful message and it was great to hear it again! I'd have to say the best part of the night was when Santa came. Sam knows who Santa is but he had never had the privilege of meeting him, and knowing the way he is lately, I was under the impression (as was everyone else it seemed) he would be afraid of him. So all day yesterday I tried to prepare him for it by saying he was going to meet Santa and get to sit on his lap. I think that helped because he was expecting it and totally LOVED it! We were all pleasantly surprised that he was in no way afraid of Santa! Woo hoo! He was so cute. He gave him high fives and "knuckles." Below are some pictures from it. We were going to go to the community Christmas party tonight too where we would have had the opportunity to go on a hay ride and see Santa again but as we were about to go we just realized how much we didn't feel like it. :) Dave had a headache, I had a headache (which was actually the least of my aches at the time), and Sam wouldn't have known the difference. So here we are sitting at home. We are tired and it's been a long day for us. Dave got up early to go hunting with Nick and his father-in-law, where they had no luck, and I have been on me feet in the kitchen since yesterday baking yummy Christmas treats. Normally that wouldn't be a big deal, but every minute I'm on my feet makes how I feel so much worse (details I wont go into)! All I can say is February can't come soon enough!
