Here he is waiting for the family ahead of us to finish visiting with St. Nick.
He was very comfortable this year climbing onto Santa's lap and telling him what he wants for Christmas.
After seeing Santa, we went back into Macy's to mail our letter to Santa and make sure that it gets to the elves at the North Pole. Eli loved the special mailbox.

How do you know that someone has a 4 year old? There is a Pirates of the Caribbean action figure on their Christmas Village train.
The Christmas Village is very special at our house. The kids can't wait to open up all of the boxes and put everything together. Our pieces are from all over, I don't keep to one collection, I am more interested in finding unique pieces that will complete our village. This year we had some wonderful additions. The train station above is one of them.
