We headed downtown to visit Santa Ted - he moved from Macy's last year and they set up a cute little house in Pioneer Square. I think the kids missed seeing the reindeer and decorations at Santaland but Santa Ted really is worth it. He is the best Santa ~ so authentic and sweet!
we were lucky as we chose to go on a Wednesday, so there was no line at all!
giving him hugs
Kennedy dove right in and started telling Santa what she would like this year...very specific was her request "a bike...with a basket and a bell" and it should be purple
Carter also requested a bike this year and Santa kindly asked what color he would like - green. Hope Carter is a little flexible. Thankfully Santa kind of covered his tracks and explained that he would do his best but that the elves had many toys to make this year.
We had to go back around and visit Santa a second time, because none of our pictures were very good. The kids weren't super cooperative, but I was happy with the end result.
Kennedy wanted to continue their conversation...she had a lot to tell the jolly old man!

a quick stop to admire the huge tree in Pioneer Square
I love being downtown this time of year ~ it's so festive!
