At least one liked him...

Steve took off for lunch with us and we went to the mall to hit up Santa this afternoon. There were no lines, it was great. The kids were pretty excited about the train, so we let them ride that first.

Then came Santa. Kanyon ran right up to him and jumped into his lap and began listing off all the things he wanted... you can see he was on about #5 when I snapped this shot. Santa was listening intently and even asking about specific colors. haha! I made sure to have Kanyon relay to us what he told Santa that he wanted... so far we're pretty close! :)
Then Scarlett's turn came and the crying began. I was wondering if this would happen since she's been a bit clinging lately... Even with Kanyon back up on Santa's lap, this was about as good as it got. ;)
We have to take a picture anyway! Hey, at least Santa looked like he was having a good time. ;) Poor man, I'm sure he'll have had his fill of bawling kids by the time Christmas comes. Isn't he a cute Santa though??

Gotta love Santa pictures! I am impressed that your mall Santa would let you take your own pics. Not here . . . even after I paid for one of their packages, they wouldn't let me snap a couple. SCROOGES! ;-)

That is so funny! I can totally see MIkayla freaking out on Santa's lap too. I can't wait to take her to see how she'll react!

Solee will wave at Santa, but that's about it. Thanks for the Almonds, your gift has been in my office forever, I just need to run it by! Scarlett is SO cute.

Callie and Cole were both terrified of Santa. So needless to say, I have a pic of Maddi and Caden ONLY! I knew Callie probably wouldn't be down, but Cole? I was very sad. Glad I am not the only one that has kids scared of Santa!!
