Santa & Ponies

There is a great place in Wichita called C-Arrow Stables. They put together a WONDERFUL Christmas program that we took the girls to tonight. They had a live Nativity Scene, a hayride, a donkey, camel, goats, pony rides and SANTA CLAUS! The employees were very, very nice and the girls had a lot of fun. Unfortunately my camera stinks and many of the shots that I took were too dark or blurry to post. Too bad because I had snapped one of the camel biting Sophie's hat (all animals just LOVE her...) and Emma trying to touch Mary in the Nativity Scene. :) Oh well. Below are the salvageable pictures...

Sophie on her first (and last?!) Pony ride. She was yelling at the top of her lungs "Ohhh WHOA! Ohhh WHOAAAA! All done"! ;)
Emma of course LOVED riding the pony. She has ALWAYS loved horses as far back as I can remember. She is completely at ease and happy. Well, that is until the ride is over. ;)
Sophie eyeing Santa; I am not sure that she said a word to him, but she wanted to get in on things.
This would have been a CUTE picture if I had centered it. I was getting frazzled at this point. :0
Emma asking Santa to come to our house...
The girls waiting for their soft pepermint treats.

PS: I wanted to add that the girls had an EXTRA special day today. Before heading off to visit Santa Claus we attended our friend Mandy Rose Wenzel's 4th Birthday party. Mandy Rose is a cutie and my girls just love her...her folks are not too bad either. ;) Happy Birthday Mandy Rose and thank you for inviting us to your party...we had fun!

I love that the pictures are dark. It makes it look like it's Christmas Eve or something. :)

Great pictures and narrative. I can just imagine it all. The girls are so darn cute and I can't wait to finally meet Sophie. Hugs,
Sarah p.s. Trying to get over the flu here (me). I'm so behind on Christmas now.
