My little guy with Santa, there are a bunch of slight variations of basically the same picture. This is because I'm a mom, and I think that these are all so adorable, I can't pick a favorite of my identical pictures, and I can't bear to only save the cropped versions.
This is the first year we've been able to get Essi to willingly see Santa. I guess something about a creepy guy in a red suit wasn't doing it for her. So this year we explained that he was like a grandpa, he was offering her candy, we were offering her candy, then we went to cold hard cash. She got a dollar for this picture. Do you love how her she's still kind of leaning away from him? Right after this, she warmed right up to him and wouldn't leave him alone the rest of the night. Luckily, there weren't many kids, and this Santa was really REALLY fantastic.
