You know those moms who see their kids freak out near Santa and say, "Oh my kids are afraid of Santa so I'm not going to make them sit on his lap...maybe next year we'll get a picture with Santa" ? Call me mean, but I'm not one of those moms. I am almost afraid to admit this lest I get "you're messing up your children" emails, but I think it's funny. It lasts five minutes, but the pictures just crack me up for months and years to come. I mean, tell me it doesn't sorta make you giggle:
So the funny thing about this was that Izzy was fine at first. She didn't even cry when I put her on his lap. She was as happy as could be. And then Aiden freaked out (which, by the way, is totally not in his nature...he's usually so friendly and easy going with new people) and Izzy lost it. I am sure she thought that if AIDEN was losing it, there must be cause. Ha!
So then Connor decided he was going to give Santa a hug and was perfectly thrilled. Aiden agreed to give him a hug and I thought we had it all figured out! So I put Aiden back on Santa's lap. At first he was fine, and then by the time the photographer snapped this photo below (grrrr), he was losing it again.
