Visit with Santa

Chase said he has been a good boy this year. He asked for a talking Diego toy.

We have been lucky enough to visit a nearby garden with a special Christmas lights display twice this holiday.  Almost a mile of walkable paths through lots and lots of lights is finished off with s'mores around a fire pit.

A new bike!

Chase received a new bike for Christmas from Maga and Duck. He is doing well with pedaling but uses the curb and the grass as brakes -- hasn't figured out the hand brake yet. His favorite part is the built-in engine sound effect.

A tiny visitor

Meet Christopher Pop-In-Kins.  He popped into our house to keep an eye on Chase for Santa -- to tell Santa what Chase wants for Christmas and that he's being a good boy. During the night while we are sleeping, Christopher finds a new place to sit, and we look for him in the morning. Christopher also helps with the advent calendar.

Advent calendar

We brought out our advent calendar on December 1.  The elves so far have kept Chase on the nice list and he has received a little gift every day.  Ornaments, tiny race cars, nanobugs, stickers, Hot Wheels and more to come!

Astro drummer

Chase took an intermission in his drum concert to put on his 'astronaut' costume. Back to the music!
