This is the third year in a row we have had a screaming child on Santa's lap. Wait...I take that back. Last year we had a screaming child jumping OFF of Santa's lap!
Anyway, the annual Santa picture has been taken! And Parker actually stood beside Santa, though he was VERY nervous and SILENT as we stood in line. At one point he even started backing up like he wasn't sure, but he did indeed stand beside Santa and he even told him what he would like ("A candy and a dinosaur").
Braden of course was his super relaxed around an old man with a big white beard self...just as he has been every year since we placed him on this "stranger's lap" when he was 11 months old. He was happy to see Santa and give him his letter for Santa that he wrote all on his own this year! He did a great job!
Emersyn was our screamer this year! She stayed on Santa's lap just long enough to get the obligatory Santa picture and then she was rescued by her Daddy!
