Santa's Ranch at the Library

We had such fun last year at our library's Santa Ranch and couldn't wait to head back this year. In fact, it was SO much fun last year that I decided to let Preston skip his nap and come along this time so he wouldn't have to miss out on it (and if you've witnessed how grumpy he gets without a nap, you know this was a sacrifice!). We had already had a busy day, but hurried back from the gift exchange fun at Katie's to get Ella from the bus stop and then head over to the library.
The girls were most excited about the pony rides, so when we arrived and they were still being set up they chose to wait outside instead of heading inside to do crafts. They wanted first pick of those ponies! We talked with one of the librarians and found other creative outlets to pass the time.

Addie managed to tie these leaves on to the weed with a piece of grass.

After a nice long pony ride we headed inside for face painting (unfortunately the awesome lady from last year moved), treats, a talk with Santa and some crafts. We even got to see Brooklynn and Ian at the end for a bit. It was a perfect way to end the week before heading out to San Antonio the next morning!
