Waiting for Santa

DJ and parents went to the mall on Monday night to see Santa, our careful planning and arrival found Santa just had taken a break (WHO KNEW??) therefore we had to waste an hour. Upon our return to Santa's land, we encountered a line (about 30-40 people deep!!!)and we waited for Santa. After Devon and DJ wandering while Mommy stood in line with the other families. It was a long wait and after we finally "entered" Santa's village, DJ was tired, cranky and over the concept of seeing Santa. However, we are Mau's we don't give up!! We decided that something was better than nothing and at this point we had waited over an hour. So, attached is the picture we got on our camera, not the best but, proof that Santa and DJ conversed for his Christmas list.

Fun was had by, well none but we managed none the less!

Merry Christmas 2009

We will update later this weekend with Christmas pictures and the family that can make it during the 2nd Blizzard!

Be Safe, Blessed and with Family!

Santa's Letter to DJ

Due to the recent changes in weather we were concerned that Santa may not be able to make it to Iowa, so he sent a special video to DJ.

Please see attached!!

Blizzard 2009

We have a few pics to DEMONSTRATE the snowdays!

Walking in the Snow is hard!!

Why do we like to be outside in this stuff?

Well, in case you haven't heard...the Blizzard of 2009 has hit Des Moines. We have been "snowed" in since Tuesday afternoon and just this afternoon finally got our driveway cleared. Schools are cancelled again for Thursday so, it looks to continue to be challenging.
This is our driveway...can you find it??? No--well we couldn't find it either for almost 24 hours!!

DJ and Mommy playing outside in the Snow!!

DJ and Daddy bringing in the Trash--during the snow storm.

Hope you are all safe and "digging" out or sliding everywhere you go safely!

This last picture is for Grandpa Mair--we found this hat and packed it away last year, now it's too small ( I blame Devon's big head being passed down to DJ) but at least a small step to showing some Illinois roots!!
