Teri & James were there and Bob and I went along -- we couldn't miss out on visiting the North pole - or seeing the excitement as Mr. Ashton laid eyes on Santa for the very first time -
He was a bit shy for sure! But he didn't cry - Santa handed him the first gift of christmas -

Mrs. Claus was a big hit! Everyone Loved her including the boys!!

EMBARASSING!!! I JUST WENT TO THE CAR!! Of course, Bob was right there in the middle of the war with the rest of them, taking the pictures to document this - and i'm sure egging them on!
What is Ryan telling Mark? "Hey Mark Look...There's.......
I love this picture of Joe and me - so, since this is my blog......
