So this is love...

Yesterday was a big day for us. Lia had an extended audience with the big jolly guy. Since most people were at home, preparing for Thanksgiving I assume, we had Santa to ourselves for quite some time. He was one of the kindest, sweetest Santas I have ever met...and Lia was equally smitten. She spoke to him in soft, reverent tones, alternating between telling him that she loved him and the occasional Christmas request. She promised him gingerbread men for Christmas Eve...so I better dust off my recipe and get baking!! It was just one of those unplanned moments that turn into lifelong memories...a nice little start to this most special of seasons.

We have so very much to be thankful for today. Wishing you all a most wonderful of Thanksgiving Days with lots of turkey, pumpkin pie...and dreams come true.

How sweet!! I'm sure the big guy was smitten with Lia too and made special notes of just what she wants for Christmas!

Happy Thanksgiving -- wishing you and yours lots of turkey, stuffing and pie!

Lia looks very comfortable up there on Santa's lap....I think he has already put her on the "Nice" list. Truly adorable....what a special day for you two.....the unplanned moments are the best!!
