The heat miser gave in... aka, snow in the south

Saturday in the historic district of Savannah they had their annual "Holly Days" festival that we take the kids to every year. So fun, especially for southern kids who never see snow- they pump in snow for them to play in, even though it's 60 degrees out. The kids look forward to it every year, and this year Leah Kate was REALLY into it- she refused to go in the section marked for kids 5 and under and insisted on going with her brothers in the 6-12 year old section- and totally held her own.
Mark was on call so I took them by myself, but honestly it was not bad at all- even Thomas listened and didn't try to escape to another part of the park.

We walked around a little after the snow and ran into Santa!
This was the first year Leah Kate wasn't completely petrified of him. She was a little nervous at first, but soon jumped up into his lap and was asking for Barbies ;) Matthew was not into it this year, so sad, but did agree to duck into the picture for my sake. Thomas was very excited all around- ran right up to him outside and was the first on his lap. He asked for Toy Story- so Toy Story he shall get :)

Movie I made of our morning (warned you I'd make more!):

That's Chris Botti on trumpet playing Let it Snow.
