fearing for their life

I thought this might be the year Katie would sit on Santa's lap sans tears.

She had been talking about visiting Santa and telling him what she wanted for Christmas. Then, earlier this week I got my first hint of her balking when she told me, "I think Maddie is going to be scared of Santa, Mama."

We went to an event where Santa was played by their swim teacher. I was hoping the vague familiarity might help.

That would be a negative.

Oh My God, that is the most hilarious Santa photo I have ever seen!!! I could photoshop you three out of there and stick you in a warzone and no one would be the wiser... well except for the huge grin on your face... I might have to do something about that... maybe decapitate you or something...but other than that! hahaha

This had me laughing b/c I can sympathize. Last year was the first year I was not in a Santa pic. This one is a keeper though.

LOL!! Their faces are hilarious given the context. They look like they're afraid Santa's going to up and smack 'em. Poor Coach Tim...
