Santa

We bundled up and braved the freezing temperatures to help Ty finish up his Christmas shopping and to make a stop to see Santa. I love going to the Santa at Utica. He sits in a tiny gingerbread looking house in the middle of an outdoor shopping center. They allow you to use your own camera and it is just you, your family, Santa and either Mrs. Clause or an elf inside. It's pretty cramped and isn't the most elaborately decorated, but I love that it is just you inside and we have never encountered a line.

Jack wasn't too sure about Santa. I didn't give him much time to warm up to the idea. As soon as we walked inside I stripped him of his coat and hat and plopped him on Santa's lap. He was a little startled to say the least.

Notice the leggings under his pants. It was so cold out! 

He warmed up to Santa a little bit once Daddy joined him and after Santa gave him a cookie.

We taught Jack how to say "ho ho ho", but he wouldn't say it for Santa. Maybe next year...

  1. We are headed to see Santa tomorrow. I am sure we will get the same reaction. TEARS and SCREAMS and probably her turning to him and telling him to put her down. She is very opinionated. LOL. I love the pictures and Jack is just too cute!

  2. I love how he cheered up when dad and cookies arrived on the scene - too cute! I showed Blaire Santa from about 40 feet away on a recent trip to the mall. When I suggested she maybe sit on his lap the tears started flowing. No Santa for us this year!
