I took them out to go riding their bikes, over at the school. I really should be getting them out more often because I think it would be great for them to be able to go for a short ride with me. Right now they don't have the riding skills down very well, and need more practice. After the riding was done we came back to the house and had some lunch. Linda wanted to get some additional decorations up, inside the house (the outside looks pretty good and we're all happy with how it looks). Personally I think the inside decorations look good, but Linda wants just a little more. I would have said it was because of the special visitor (see below) except that she was already working on these additions prior to knowing about the visit.
The special visitor was Santa, and the girls had no idea he was coming. They were very excited to see him, and I was able to get a couple of photos, I just wish I had been holding the camera just a little more square. Santa stayed for about 10 - 15 minutes and then he had to get moving; he had other stops to get in, today. It feels like we're really getting settled in to this new home and town. Oh, and one more thing... yes, that is a tall tree, close to 14 feet.
