WOW, What a wonderful Day. Grandma's little Angels (you know the ones with horns) and I had a wonderful day, shopping for gift exchange (A new tradition I have started to teach them the GIVING to OTHERS part of Christmas). The boys got girls to buy for so after we got past the Transformers and making them realize girls are not going to really like them, they did great. We spent 2 hours letting them look for girls gifts and had a lot of laughs and they were so proud to stand in line and tell the cashier about what they were doing and paying for it themselves (grab bags came with 10 gift card to spend on their name the draw). Then they were so proud to put the change in the red pail for Salvation Army Bell ringer, telling the guy to have a very Merry Christmas and why they wanted to help other during Christmas that don't have anything. (GRANDMA is VERY PROUD of their little BIG HEARTS)!

Then we had one more stop to make for them doing so well, A VISIT to SANTA! For the month of Dec Cocoa Village has a ICE skating rink step up in the riverside park, and on the weekend SANTA comes to the park to visit so Dusty and I took them, with our own camera and let them talk to Santa. After telling Santa what they would like, Mikey (and then of course Baby Javi followed up too) by asking Santa to not for get the kids that don't have anything so they can get a new toy too! lesson of GIVING and THINKING of others really touch Mikey's heart. Baby JAVI is our kind and soft hearted one, so of course after hearing Mikey he did the same thing. TIMELESS memories for GRANDMA today! (IF they could only stay this age forever!)

OK...Grandma is tired out from my 12 hour day with my 3 little guys...which ended up with a new Christmas movie (new to them) The Grinch with Jim Carey. (PICs will be posted tomorrow)

Here is your Day 7 of 12 days Before Christmas....Enjoy
