    This picture is adorable Ali. Great minds think alike as my son wants the same thing. (Amongst many other things of coarse) =)
    I did the ship at Costso yesterday for $89.99 and actually look better then the one Target has for the same price. My son says, “The Costco one is way more cooler cause it has more of the guys that come with it.”
    Only he would know right?!!!?
    happy holidays..

    Wow, Santa’s taking orders already!?!? Sweet photo! Christopher decided what he wants…another Lego train, the passenger one. Last year Santa brought him the cargo train set. What a magical time of year! Enjoy!

    sara said…

    !!!! Cutest picture yet !!!! That boy is going to have so many moments like this when his new sister arrives… I can only imagine all the things he’ll be whispering in her ear :)

    Linda J said…

    LOVE this picture!!!:)

  • 26.

    I’m not that jealous kind of girl but if only we had such wonderful look a like Santa’s in the Netherlands… So much better then the not so photogenic Sinterklaas we do have over here hahaha Although I consider Sinterklaas (5.dec) as being the best Dutch tradition I defenitely admire those pictures of kids whispering their wishes to a ‘cosy’ santa.
    Have fun!

    Linda Beeson said…

    He looks pretty brave here! CUTE!

    Liz Ness said…

    Heh-heh…I think that’s what D will whisper in Santa’s ear, too. May all their dreams come true!

    Love it!!!! It’s a secret shhh- some one at my house wants the Star Wars ship too. Gotta love Christmas. Thanks for the post about Cocoa Daisy.

    What a great looking santa, I love his shirt! I hope your little Storm trooper gets what his heart desires. Oh… and you do too!

    alexandra said…

    Is it me or is this the exact same Santa as last year??!!
    He’s so, so cool – love the shirt and the casual vibe – he’s Santa unplugged! Much more real, more convincing, more fabulous than the overdone and overstuffed Santas around here. We’ve never even bothered to take the twins to see Santa – they know the Santas around here are just ‘helpers’ who dress up like Santa. You’re lucky to have the real guy out there in Oregon!!!

    I love that!
    Wait until he discovers Indy Jones legos. Those are pretty fun too!

    Amy said…

    OMG! That is so adorable how he is whispering in Santa’s ear. What a great photo! I am quite sad that I don’t think I will get photos of the kids with Santa this year. Alex is TERRIFIED of anyone he doesn’t know and Emma is very shy. I might get one with her but it just doesn’t seem right to leave Alex out. :(

    I have the feeling that Simon has been really good and may just get his wish!! Happy Holidays!

    What an adorable picture and a pretty good looking Santa. We get some in our malls that are hard-pressed to pass the test of a child’s eyes.
    Thanks so much for taking the time on a weekend to share that with us. I’ll be in Phoenix for Thanksgiving with both of my daughters. It might be fun to get these two gorgeous gals on Santa’s lap for a photo op. It would make a fun layout with an old photo of them with Santa. Ooooooo… the ideas are sparking!! Great photo for my Gratitude Spinner which graces our coffee table.
    Happy Thanksgiving to all the Edwards including baby-girl Edwards. So much to be Thankful for!
    Wisconsin hugs,

    That is so adorable! Tell Simon that a little boy named David (in PA) is wanting Santa to bring him that same big Star Wars ship. :o )
