Last night was a fun holiday-themed evening! We had a delicious dinner with our friends Kenny & Amanda, who always spoil Sydney with goodies. Sydney loves them, and I'm sure it has nothing to do with the gifts ;-)
After the fabulous dinner at their house, we all went to the Fayetteville Square where the beautiful display of the Lights of the Ozarks draws lots of people each night during the season. Sydney was fascinated, and she looked so cute all bundled up.
There was an option to take photos of your child with Santa, so we took advantage of the opportunity, which also helped us to avoid the mall crowd and crazy Santa line. Her immediate death grip on my arm told me this was going to be a family photo. Call me crazy, but I just couldn't force her onto his lap in the middle of our lovely evening. We are happy with this photo to commemorate her first Santa experience :)
Last but not least, we took a photo on the bench where we got engaged in August of 2006. It's so fun (and emotional!) to think about everything that has happened in our lives since that moment!
