I found this a few days ago, hanging out in my desk. It’s from 2002. Magnolia is two yrs old. Eleanor is almost five. You can see they pretty much came out of the womb celebrating reality. What I remember from this day was that we went with some friends whose kids were of similar ages. I had to tell the girls before we left not to ruin Santa for the boys. They did a great job keeping their mouths shut. This was the only photo they ever had with Santa. It’s one of my favorites.
