Stockings for me & Pepper

These are photos of the pre-Christmas stockings. Before we leave town for the big Christmas events & visits, we have a small stocking-opening session at home. Mainly for me & for Pepper. It's fun! And kind of like a 'warm-up' for the main day! :D

My very 1st ornament

Santa over the years...

It's amazing how much my relationship with Santa has changed over the years! So far, I have experienced 5 Christmas seasons in my lifetime. And each time I visit the santa-man, it is a totally different experience. See pics below!

2003 - I'm a baby. So I'm clueless who this guy is! Just plop me on his lap, and I'm happy.

2004 - Uh oh. I am now 1-1/2 and I am AWARE. Who the heck is this big dude?? Lots & lots of tears here. Poor me! But I still look cute so my parents subject me to this anyway.

2005 - Thought 2004 was challenging, Mom & Dad? Yeah right! At 2-1/2, I say NO to Santa. I will not go near him. Just try to get a photo. NO! But, Pepper was very agreeable to a Santa visit during "Pet Night" at the mall. :)

2006 - Big Success! I guess "3" is the magic number since I'm a three-year-old girl now. A BIG girl. Santa is my buddy this year, and I'm having a blast. And my parents are thrilled. Sheesh, they took about 10,000 pictures!

2007 - Yeah, I hang with Santa again this year. No biggie. I'm a Santa-veteran now. I hear there are lots of little kids who are scared of Santa, but I am here for them if they need to talk. ;)
