Winter Already?!?

So it snowed the other day. A lot. And I think the temperature dropped to about -5000 degrees. Amherstview held their annual "Light Up The Season" festival yesterday so April, Parker and I went down to meet Santa. It was really, really cold. But everyone is always super nice (and free hot dogs and hot chocolate help a bit) so we had a good time. Here's a photo of Parker with Santa. By this point he had been hanging out either in Mommy's arms or on his little sled for about 45 minutes, which is really long for a toddler to be in sub-arctic temperatures, but he did really well. He didn't totally freak when he sat with Santa -- he just kind of stared at him for a minute and then said, "Okay, I'm done." Here are the photos in reverse chronological order (thanks, Blogger!):

Staring at Santa.

Staring at Santa while Santa says, "Haven't you ever seen a camera before, kid? Look over there!"

Bundled up because it was SO COLD. Doesn't he look thrilled?

Okay, that's a bit better. Mommy is an awesome sled puller.

"Weeeeeeeeeeee!"

Parker looks so cute all bundled up! Did he do okay with Santa? Does he understand anything about Xmas yet?

I love the stare! Santa probably gets lots of those. Must be interesting for little ones to see such a big and white beard, don't you think?? Parker's beautiful.

Kristyne: Thanks! My mom made it! She's the Knitting Queen.
Claire: Haha, no, I don't think he understands anything about Christmas yet. Probably next year, though!
