We decided that we would take Katie and Michael to see Santa at the mall tonight. Michael has been asking about going to see him as he already has his list ready. We went right after Santa got back from his break to minimize the wait time. There were only 3 or 4 people in line in front of us. Tonight was also pet night so we were taking turns with people who had brought their pets to see Santa!
When it was our turn, Michael walked right up to Santa and sat in his lap. Katie didn't realize what was going on at first. She was OK until she looked at Santa and realized that we wanted her to sit with him. I picked her up to put her on his lap and she pushed him away. I offered a piece of candy to her if she would sit with him. She wanted candy but still wouldn't sit with Santa. We finally got her to stand in front of him with the candy in her cheek.
After we gave up on getting her to sit on Santa's lap, Michael sat with Santa and told him what he wanted for Christmas. We got a picture of the two of them together.
We were able to get one shot of Katie, Michael and Santa. Pictures like these are the ones that memories are made of!
