You Better Not Cry.....

This year we didn't brave the malls with the long lines and high prices for a Santa picture because we still weren't sure if any of the kids would get near Santa. Little Man was excited to see Santa in theory and had written him a letter with the three things he was hoping to get this year  He was so excited to be able to hand deliver his letter but wasn't 100% about actually sitting on the Big Guy's lap.  So we found a local place near our house that had free Santa pictures, an Elf bounce and other fun activities.  Peanut was super excited in theory and didn't have any qualms but the closer we got to the front of the line the more he insisted that we go home.  So we promised him he didn't have to see Santa and he held us to that promise.  I don't even think he made eye contact with him.  Little Man hand delivered his letter and then Santa picked him up and put him on his lap.  Santa thanked him for writing him a letter and told him that it made his job a lot easier and he would try very hard to get him as many things as he could from his list.  Little Man was in awe.  Peanut was in hiding and Sweet Pea, well Sweet Pea was not thrilled at all. But we have our Santa 2011 picture and even though we are missing Peanut and Sweet Pea has her pacifier and is still crying - it is perfect!
