I am such a cheapskate. I admit it. Colin is now 4 years old and I have yet to pay one penny for any pictures with Santa. Never fear, he has sat on Santa's lap (when he was able to get within 20 feet of him without freaking out) but I've always managed to be crafty in finding free Santas.
This year was no exception. I had planned on taking him somewhere else but the timing didn't work out that day and we didn't get to go. I was afraid the season would pass without him getting to sit on the big guy's lap but alas, his preschool pulled through for me!
Not only did we get to see Santa, Mrs. Claus was there too. And Santa read them a story. AND it was free! Doesn't this Santa look so authentic?
I knew Colin would have no issues sitting on his lap this year but what I didn't bargain for was him leaving his snack in order to be one of the first one's to visit the bearded man. Will wonders ever cease?!
As the kids were eating their snacks, Santa and Mrs. Claus were left all alone. I noticed Mrs. Claus eyeing Sawyer and I thought she might be the gateway to a successful photo opportunity. I was right! Sawyer didn't even bat an eye when I handed him to her. He just stared at Santa's beard and made me so nervous that he was going to try to pull it - luckily it looks real so I think we would have been ok.
I guess your thumb can get you through just about anything!
Merry Christmas to you and to you a good night!
