Meeting that "special" guy

I guess I will be continuously apologizing for all the pictures from the past few months. But I thought I should document some of this before I forget about it. Emma goes to therapy at the Courage Center and this past Christmas season, they ( courage center) threw a holiday party for all of their clients. So we, of course, attended. We left Evan at Grandma's and made it be for Emma only (he was invited to come too). There were a lot of people and it was neat to see all these kids and their families. Here is Emma with the snacks that they provided. (Just a side note: Emma didn't sit still the entire time.)

Here she is meeting that special guy. She liked Santa but really didn't want to get too close to him. He had presents, you know.
Here is another shot of Santa trying to get her on his knee. I wish I would have gotten a picture of her and Santa. She sat in a chair next to him. It was pretty cute. She then got her present.
Here she is opening her gift. She got a doll, stroller and some other things came with it but I cannot remember. She thought it was so neat that Santa gave presents. So she would keep going up to Santa and try to take the other kids gifts. Can you say embarrassing?!

Unfortunately, this is when we had to leave. Emma threw the BIGGEST fit and was screaming and crying. Not fun for her parents. It took quite awhile to settle her down. I guess I am glad she like Santa, even if it meant having a tantrum. Maybe next year will be a little better. Next post will be a current one and then back to the archives.


  1. I have tried a few different times now to post a comment and this is the first time I was able to! I kept on trying because I wanted to say how cute it was Emma likes Santa so much! (I'm sure you guys didn't appreciate the tantrum so much. At least you know we have ALL been there! :)) I also love your blog background by the way, I'm going to have to check out that webpage!

  2. What a great party - and very sweet to make it just a day for Emma and her parents. I love how Emma is watching Santa - you can tell she's just trying to figure that guy out.

  3. It's never fun leaving Santa! I remember my one son doing the SAME thing! Thank you for helping on my island post! I think I have finally decided :)
