This year we were not home when Santa came by our house, and the kids were really disappointed. So, in an effort to keep them "believing", we bought tickets for the Couer d'alene Fantasy Cruise and took them to the North Pole to see Santa.
It was a little chilly, but fun no less. The kids were surprised and very excited. During the cruise we got hot chocolate and chocolate chip cookies. Once we got there, the 3 cruise boats all pulled up to "Santa's workshop" and Santa came out to talk to everyone. He then pulled out a list and read all the kids' names from the "nice" list. All the names EXCEPT for the ones on our boat!! As the boats began pulling turning aroud to head back to the resort, we had to turn around and go back to Santa, as Mrs. Clause had found another part of the nice list - and it had the rest of the kids' names on it. Whew! Shianne and Hunter were worried! =)
Overall, they had a great time, and the season for believing continued for another year.

Our annual Baking Day was a huge hit this year! The kids got to decorate Christmas sugar cookies that Lyla baked beforehand, and the ladies got busy baking our holiday goodies. Even Kennedy got in on the action this year, her first Baking Day. And her cookies were a huge success!
