Coming to an End

Our membership to the Children's Museum of Indianapolis is coming to an end. I think we have decided that we will not be renewing it for next year (however I still hate to see it go:( ). Anyhow, on the advent for yesterday was to visit Santa Claus, and did you know that the "real" Santa Claus is at the museum. All the mall Santa's are just "helpers". So I wanted Jane and the kids to experience the "real" Santa. We stayed for 4 1/2 hours--holy cow, shoot me. But the kids had a blast. Especially meeting up with some dear friends of ours.

That place looks awesome!
Jane is really starting to look like you. Such a pretty girl.

I love the one of Aly pouting and picking her nose. Reminds me of K:) Damn nose pickers!

That slide is great. You can still go visit, can't you? Fun for little ones!
Are you ready for Christmas?? I can't believe how it is almost here.

Gotta love a great Children's Museum! And it sure does look like an amazing one. I am sure there are tons of fun places for the kiddos to enjoy where you live. So even if this membership runs out, there are other kid friendly establishments to join - right? Happy Holidays. Oh, and as a side note...I was checking the Time Out For Women 2010 tour schedule. They are coming to IN in April. Have you ever been to one of those events??? If I lived by you, I would force you to go with me. SO amazing.So inspiring.Check it out: http://deseretbook.com/time-out/schedule

It was so much fun that we could all get together.

That slide looks like the one on Christmas Story!

Sounds like a fun day that required a nap for MOM after...

Did the kids freeze seeing Santa?? I took the boys and once they were face to face with Santa neither one of them knew what they wanted. It was so silly!

I love seeing your pictures.

That was a seriously long wait! He is a real Santa, though. I can see why you made the effort! Merry Christmas from us! I hope your Christmas is a little less eventful than your Thanksgiving! Love ya

We were not going to renew this year either but then someone caught wind of that and decided to renew it as a Christmas gift. Yippee!

And....are you interested in going to time out for women. I'm fairly certain I will be attending so if you would like to join me, let me know.

What an awesome Santa set-up!!! Great pics too. I tell ya I miss our Children's museum. They have one here but I haven't checked it out yet. We do belong to the botanical gardens though. They have a train display we are going to see on Saturday so that should be fun. :)

He is the REAL Santa. We have six years worth of pictures to prove it!

It was great to see you. Thanks for playing!
