Helicopter Santa!

We had an exciting morning last Saturday when we got to see Santa arrive in a helicopter at Bank of Texas in Hurst!

As we waited and cheered his arrival with the elves and helpers,

we enjoyed a little morning treat (Donuts!)!

Finally, the helicopters began to appear off in the distance as we cheered their approach. There were three helicopters; one with Santa and Mrs. Claus, one with Rudolph and one with Frosty the Snowman.

The elves cheered as the excitement began to build! Here comes Santa!

There's Santa, waving from the helicopter!

Santa and Mrs. Claus are escorted from the chopper...

Tori waved at Santa as he made his way down the line of people to say hello.

Santa stops by to say hello to the Ball Family!

After seeing Santa, we got to go over and check out the helicopters...

Tanner even got to sit in the cockpit!

Then, we found some motorcycles that he was fascinated with and the owner gave Tanner permission to sit on it... the boy was THRILLED!!!

Of course, sister had to join him for a picture too!

We had a great time and the kids talked about this event for the rest of the weekend! They were very animated as they recapped all of the details to us, over and over again. Tori was particularly hilarious to listen to as she excitedly told us about, "Seeta, and heh-copper, and mor-cycle, and DONUT!" while hardly taking a breath! She wasn't going to forget about that donut... she's a hoot!
