Visiting Santa... oh the drama!

So I totally thought this year would be a peice of cake. Yeah right!
Over Thanksgiving Adam and I brought Grace to a mall near my parents and got this pic. I wasn't totally happy with it because it looks like her eyes are closed. She just wouldn't take her eyes off Santa! I am sure she was thinking of tugging that beard or tearing off his glasses. But nope she just starred.
So today my friend Melanie and I drove down to the city to try to get a better pic. No such luck. In fact it was worse! She wanted NOTHING to do with Santa as you can see in the picture below. Oh well maybe next year. Actually I bet next year I get a pic simular to this one! :) Which do you like better??

I love the first one. It almost looks like shes gone to sleep in Santa's lap! We had one year that our son screamed bloody murder on one of santa's knees...while our daughter sat all the while smiling away on the other knee! Hilarious! My kids are now 3 & 6....and its just now become EASY..and they both look forward to seeing him!

(I caught your blog from my friend Nicole's btw hehe)

I like the second one. I'm sure it's not exactly what you were hoping for, but it is absolutely priceless!

We had a similar experience. Maddyson was terrified. Shaking in my arms. Luckily, the mall had arranged a couple tuesdays where we could bring our dogs also. So, once the dogs were up with santa and sitting there for a little bit, she finally warmed up to sit on the arm of the couch.

OMG!!! That is SO funny. Actually, it's why we decided not to put Carson through it (and ourselves....the lines!). That is a great pic (the 2nd one) you will remember forever!
