Santa!

Have you taken your LO to see Santa? How did it go?

DD has been twice The first time she really, really, really wanted to see him, but when we got up there she was very very shy and while she still wanted to see him she didn't want me to put her down and didn't really talk to him too much. She did give him a hi-five and ask him for her desired toy (a doc mcstuffins checker "thing".) and let me sit with her in my lap for a picture. But she really wanted to try again and again when we got close, she got a little nervous but Santa offered up a candy cane and she was sold she still wouldn't sit beside him but talked to him a lot more and was a lot more excited. She was willing to stand by the sleigh and have Santa behind her so that's what we did and got a super cute picture.

Not yet, but hopefully we will this week. Not sure how it will go.

We took Henry for the first time this year. While waiting in line, Santa came over and talked to the kids and sang Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer and showed the kids some actions for it. It was really cute. Then he said he was looking for new elves and was checking for pointy ears and stuff. I think that helped some kids warm up to him a bit.

Henry did really well. He just sort of sat and stared at Santa while we snapped a few photos.

Your LOs look so cute!

I haven't been too active on TMP lately but we did take Emmett to see Santa last week. He did really well considering he doesn't want to be held much these days and is more interested in running everywhere and getting into everything.

We didn't even bother this year. Last yea was a disaster. S hates getting his picture taken and he's also not a real big fan of strangers talking to him, so it's a recipe for a meltdown.

I was actually surprised that Henry didn't freak out. I'll be curious to see what happens with characters at Disneyland. I figure at he very least we'll get 1 character photo...even if he's crying.
