Santa . . .

Lex finally had a Saturday off. I can't remember the last time he was able to be home on a Saturday. We asked the girls what they wanted to do . . . Desea said, " I want to go see Santa!" I was so excited! Usually kids are scared of Santa, but not my girl. We went to Grossmont Center to see Santa. We waited in line for about ten minutes, and the whole time Desea was talking about seeing, talking, and being with Santa. Finally it was the girls turn to sit on Santa's lap and take a picture. Well, apparently waiting in line and seeing Santa was enough because Desea waved to Santa and said bye bye. Hence no picture for this posting! We stood in line for 10 minutes and that was enough. I guess when she said "I want to SEE Santa!" that is really what she meant:)

Thanksgiving . . .

We went to Gordon's Well for Thanksgiving! My Dad is a hard core desert rat. Every year he spends certain weekends and holidays at the desert no matter what. This year Lex came up with the idea that we should join him. It turned out to be a little family getaway, minus Brad and Ashley. My parents took Desea with them on Wednesday, which gave me a little bit of a break, thanks Mom & Dad. Lex, Jazzy, and I went up Thanksgiving morning. We grubbed on some good food while we were there and enjoyed watching the little ones play morning, day, and night. They loved it so much that we stayed an extra night. Desea loved our house (the tent) that we slept in. Our girls couldn't get enough of the sand and Papa's dune buggy. They both cried when it was time to leave. It doesn't get much better than good food, great company, and making memories.

Jazzy loved just sitting on the desert toys

Desea tried on all the helmets and other desert accessories.
