"Santa (please) Stop" at our house

Santa has already made a visit to our house today!!! Since we moved to the new neighborhood (Spring Gate Estates) we noticed a "Santa Stop" sign popped up on the corner of our yard a couple of weeks ago. Of course being new to the neighborhood, we were both wondering what in the world??? Well we found out this afternoon.....we start hearing a siren and then all the neighborhood kids start congregating on the corner of our yard and we realize Santa is about to make a stop right in front of our house and sure enough the siren gets REALLY loud and here comes Santa, not on his reindeer, but strapped to the front of the big yellow fire truck.
The kids are going nuts cause he passing out candy and parents are taking pictures like crazy...and then there is the one girl that starts screaming, "Santa was my softball coach last year!!!" And then the parents of the little ones are having to scramble telling that he is one of Santa's helpers since Santa himself is awfully busy today getting ready to visit all the good little boys and girls.

It was fun blessing seeing the joy in all those kids that still believe in Santa like we do!!

We want to wish all our family and friends a very Merry Christmas!!!
