It’s time to start this Christmas season off right, with a fun how to draw Santa video! We took our kids to see Santa on Saturday, they loved it! I was shocked too, because I thought Hads would be scared for sure. Nope! She did awesome, and even asked him for a dolly. It made me proud. 

I hope this holiday season, for each of you, is filled with joy! Remember to take lots of video and pictures of all your kids. They’ll thank you later!
