I might have already mentioned it, but this year is a significant year for us....
It's the very first year we haven't had a crying kid on Santa's lap. If I'm being completely honest, this makes me a little bit sad. Of course, I don't want my kids to ever be scared, but the crying baby on Santa's lap pictures are just so classic. And hilarious.
Our first visit with Santa was right before Thanksgiving at the downtown Christmas preview. Everyone did good and got a candy cane from Santa, but the location was dark and the picture didn't turn out.
Our second visit with Santa was last week. We headed to a little town about a half an hour away to the Avenue of Lights. It was our first time going and we didn't know what to expected. The kids were excited to see Santa, but if I would have known how cute the picture would be I would have dressed them up. Oh well, next year.
Finley asked for a candy cane, Judah asked for a Santa hat, Silas asked for a Santa hat, too, and when Samuel was asked what he wanted he said he didn't know. Finley's Christmas wish came true right away when Santa handed all four of them a candy cane. My dad came over this weekend and gave them all Santa hats, so I guess all of our Christmas gifts are taken care of, right?
How do your kids do with Santa? (And, if you want, how do you address the issue of Santa in your home? I've been mulling this over a lot lately...)
