visiting Santa Claus


A couple of weeks ago we made our first trip as parents to see Santa Claus. We ventured to the mall about eight o'clock on a weekday night, and were fortunate to pass by Santa when he had no one in line waiting for him. Kevin held Hannah and talked to her about who this white bearded man in the red suit was. Hannah was very cautious, but was interested in looking at him. I asked, "Can Santa hold you?" "No," she quickly replied and held her dada a little tighter. Kevin sat down with Santa on his big chair and they talked to Santa about what a good girl she's been this year. She didn't cry, but there was no way that she was going to agree to let this strange man hold her. Kevin and I both didn't want a crying kid with Santa photo, so we all jumped in the photo. No smiles from Hannah this year, but she did take a coloring book from his hand.


  1. Sarah,
    We had Andy visit Santa too and his little face looked concerned just like Hannah's! You guys had such a great idea to get in the picture with her. I wish we'd thought of that. Instead we have a picture of Andy looking like he wants to squirm out of Santa's hands, no smile, but at least he wasn't crying. Good thinking, I'll have to remember that for next time! Enjoy your 1st Christmas as a family with many more to come.

  2. Oh poor kiddo looks a little unsure1 I don't blame her one bit! Hope her grew to like Santa a little better after today!
