the wonder of it all

Best Blogger Tips
Pin It Saturday I met with Mandy and Philip at the mall when they had Bennett's first Santa photos done...what fun!!
All the pretty decorations and lights sure had him captivated! A bit of a line, but he handled the wait pretty darn well. When it was his turn to sit on the jolly ole guy's lap, he just stared at him with his eyes all big and wide. He did grab at his beard and a few buttons...but that's to be expected, right?
The part I think I liked best though, was watching Mandy jump up and down to get his attention :)
Brings back so many memories of the first time I took her. (way down at the bottom of this post, you'll see a scan of that photo).

And here it is,  Alissa at 3 years old, and Mandy at 7 months (3 months younger than Bennett is right now)
It's hard to believe, sometimes it seems like just yesterday!
Hope you all are beginning to experience all the fun magical things that go along with the holiday season!!
