It's one of our favorite family traditions each year to meet up in downtown Seattle and go see Santa at Nordstrom. The last two years I've been able to walk up from work to join the Coury's and Isaac. This year I got there and they were already inside in line -- perfect! Noah and Isaac were sitting on the stairs, chatting about things only boys can appreciate, Ava was cradling her beloved Saige (American Girl doll), and Sarah and Brian were chatting happily. What a wonderful scene!
At the end, as we were getting ready to leave, Santa called me over and made me take a picture with him. Let's just say I wasn't a hard sell! :) He's a lovely Santa! So we got baby girl's first Santa picture this year, and look forward to continuing the tradition with her next year and the years to come!
