Embrace the Camera: Christmas Party

Zachary surprised us this year with a very high level of enthusiasm regarding Santa Clause.

Given that Zac's only 3 we haven't really played up the idea of Santa so it came as a huge surprise when he started asking when Santa was coming.
It's been so much fun to experience the magic of Santa, for the first time, from a parental view point this year!

Hubby's, work, kids Christmas party was this past Sunday and they had Santa come in to give each of the kids a gift.

Never before, have I seen Zachary so in awe of anything the way he was when Santa walked in the room!
And I love so much, that the only thing he could think to do with himself was give me a BIG hug!

When his name was called to receive his gift we had the roughest time getting him to actually look at the camera, he just wanted to stair...
(Santa has such good taste in wrapping paper, don't you think??)

Once all the gift giving was done, Santa stuck around to sing some last songs with the kids, and Zac was all over the opportunity to sit with him again. He climbed up on a chair beside him and just hung out, laughing a gut felt laugh every time Santa said anything!
Really, it was the cutest thing I think I've seen in my life so far (I know I'm a bit bias... but still!)

This is the only picture we were able to snap of the two boys with Santa, that someone is actually looking at the camera. I'm not too disappointed though, we've still got the memories!
And hey! I was even in a few of the pictures!
