Yes, Virginia

There has been some idle chatter around our house recently about Santa not being real (gasp).

Santa's elves must have reported to him because he paid us a surprise visit!

He did the typical Santa things like asking the boys if they had been naughty or nice, finding out what toys were on their Christmas lists and reminding them to be good for mom and dad.  

He also read them 'Twas The Night Before Christmas', told some jokes and asked them to remember that Christmas is also the birth of Our Lord.

I think we managed to prolong the belief a little while longer in the Magic and Wonder.
Thank You, Santa!
(It was priceless to hear Soren shouting, "It's Santa! Santa Claus is here!")

Random Pumpkin Love

Some random pictures from our Halloween season

Pedals, Pipes and Scary Music

Will has always been fascinated by pipe organs.  In October, he got the opportunity to attend a program at a local church where he learned all about pipe organs and even got to play one!  
What a thrill!

Now he is sure we need one.  
In our house.  
He has already scoped out the front hall as a place for the big pipes.  
Keep dreamin', kiddo.
