Smart Santa

Zoodle had no problem getting on Santa's lap, once he had a candy cane to hold.


Chickie, however, had told me beforehand, "Mommy, when I see Santa, I'm going to hide behind your leg." That was her plan, and she carried it out to the best of her ability.

So Santa got off his chair and said, "Mom, why don't you and your daughter sit here for a minute. I have something I need to look at behind the chair."

We complied, and The Engineer had the camera ready.


So we got Chickie's first picture with Santa. (She just doesn't know it yet.)

I'm not entirely sure I'd show her that picture. He looks a bit like he's sneaking up on you behind. To eat your faces!!! See, even Zoodle is taking his candy cane and making a run for it!

This is the third year running that Dee has been afraid to sit on Santa's lap. This year she talked big, and was actually excited about doing it, but when it came down to it ... nope. Not gonna happen! I don't blame them really. It makes me laugh though. And that Santa of yours is awesome!

What a clever Santa! And he's a good looking one too! I bet he is in high demand this time of year.

What a great memory for both of your kids, every time they see these pictures -- and even, years and years from now, when they may put them on THEIR blog! :)
