The Santa Train

Every year at Christmas time the Napa Valley Wine Train becomes "The Santa Train". We took the kids this year for the first time. It is a 1 1/2 hour trip up & down the valley with hot coco, cookies, Christmas carols & some very special guests (and wine for the adults of course!). Both kids had a great time while Mitch & I enjoyed watching their delight. The battery ran out on my camera, so unfortunately I didn't get any pictures with Santa.

11 months old


Dylan is officially 11 months old tomorrow-- I can't believe how fast the year has flown by. He isn't showing much interest in walking... I am assuming once he starts running around some of these adorable rolls will disappear :) He has become quite the little communicator over the past few weeks-- he can say mama, dada, CJ (our cat whom Dylan ADORES)and bye-bye. He is also beginning to use baby signs and can tell us when he wants more or is all done.

My Two Little Reindeers

Now that our Christmas cards are out and should be arriving in mailboxes as we speak, I thought  I would post  some of the pictures as I tried to be creative and capture a good shot for our card...

Santa


December 6- We took the kids to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom for "Holiday in the Park". It was ABSOLUTELY FREEZING!!! But the upside was that both kids had a great time & got to sit on Santa's lap.  Savannah also got a chance to meet Mrs. Claus, which she was very much looking forward to doing and I wasn't quite sure how I was going to make it happen :) Dylan loved Santa-- I really wanted the classic picture with a baby screaming on Santa's lap-- but both of my kids love the big guy. Maybe with #3-- just kidding Mitch :)
