Christmas is a magical time of year for kids of ALL ages
but when you are 3
it is even more amazing!!
We started our weekend yesterday
with a trip to the Ballet!
The Nutcracker
was being preformed by the
Northern Lights School of Dance
at the
Yukon Arts Centre
Of course I had all good intentions to
capture the awe filled moments
with the camera but,
I foolishly left the camera at home
oh me,
the girls were transfixed throughout
the entire two hour performance!
We can't wait for the next ballet in May!!
Getting ready to land!!
Today brought another type of Christmas magic!
Adelaide in Purple - Sarah in Pink

He came by way of a small fixed wing.
His Elf Pilot landed the little Cessna
on the Alaska Highway
and we were all there to Greet him!!

Taxing down the highway

Santa arrives!!

Terry helping Santa disembark

What an exciting time for Haines Junction!

The real excitement begins...

Adelaide and Sarah were rather thrilled
for an opportunity to give their
wishes to Santa in person!
Adelaide asked him for a back-hoe
While Sarah asked about
the possibilities of getting a dress!
Both, perfectly suited to their individual personalities
and reasonable requests...

Well..."reasonable requests",
provided they are not looking in
heavy duty equipment yards
or houte couter boutiques!

A gift for Santa in the form of a cookie

and another cookie ;)

Sarah then grabbed a gift from under the tree & gave it to Santa!

Santa and his pilot...Asking for a new plane ?
Our trusted RCMP Corporal and the head of our Ranger Unit
telling Santa that they've been trying hard to be good boys!
I'd bet Santa is feeling
safe in OUR town !!
Now...just to clean up the cabin
in time for his
trip down our chimney ;)
I'm glad I have a few days left
to get ready for
that bit of
