Santa Everywhere

A big Saturday, this past weekend with Owen getting to meet Santa Claus (several times). Once at the mall, where he was all business: told Santa exactly what he wanted (dinosaurs and cars) then sat on his lap for the photo opp. Owen was more nervous than anything else. Then it was off to see really cool video images of his baby sister (some pics on Flickr) and then down to Burlingame to see Caltrain's Santa Train (a train that stops at the train station all decked out in lights, with carolers, Rudolph, and Santa climbing out of the cars to greet everyone. And then afterwards, as we were walking down Broadway, we ran into Santa again - sitting in front of the Fire Truck.

I think it is safe to say Owen knows who Santa Claus is now.

Not the ideal way to start off the holidays...

It was a weird weekend (WVU blowing their chance at the national title by losing to Pitt, slashed tires at the Festival of the Lights in HMB and some cold weather)… but we did get to the beach to draw in the sand, test ride the new bike (see below) and we “decked the halls.”

The two wheeler (with some help)

Here is Owen demonstrating his Birthday gift. For the last 3 years he has got some sort of "transportation" - 1st birthday was the battery powered four wheeler (it took a year for him to really learn it) The 2nd birthday was the tricycle (again it took a year to master it) And now the two wheeler (with training wheels)... But as you can see I think we are off to a good start. (Hopefully, this trend ends b/c at this rate he will need a car by his 5th birthday).
