Trying to get Alaina to actually stand still, look at the camera, and smile is a difficult feat these days, but here are some pics we managed to get while she was dressed up to go to her Christmas program at daycare. She loves the Christmas tree and looking at all of the ornaments.

Here’s a pic from when Alaina visited Santa last year:
And here she is a year later:
Her hair is a bit longe, she’s much taller, but she is still very nervous about sitting on Santa’s lap! I thought she’d be more excited this year since she is constantly pointing out Santa everywhere we go, but once she gets up close, stranger danger kicks in!

We kicked off our holiday season this year by attending a balloon glow. It was a fun to watch, especially when the sun set and they tried to fire the hot air balloons at the same time. But the airing up of the balloons took a bit too long for a certain antsy toddler. Luckily, Santa was there so we hunted him down every 20 minutes or so.
