Santa Claus Is Gullible

Since my parents have become such lazy bloggers, I figured I had better get on here and catch everyone up on our December before ringing in the new year. A few weeks ago we went to see Santa Claus. I wasn't really that interested, but these girls waiting next to me in line seemed to be very excited.

I eventually made it to the front of the line and my parents placed me on Santa's lap. I didn't really want to go through with it until I noticed that Santa was holding a candy cane. If you recall from last year, I wrote about how Santa Claus was mean because he wouldn't give me his candy cane.

So this time around I decided to just take it from him.

Once I was certain the candy cane was mine, I was out of there.

I thought I was finally done with Santa until next year. Then on Christmas Eve, I was at Granny O's house minding my own business and playing with my cousins when he showed up out of nowhere! Once again my parents wanted me to sit on his lap, but at least this time he came bearing gifts.

Then my parents wanted a picture with Santa also. However, by that time he was out of presents, so I really didn't see what the point was and decided to look for an escape route.

Everyone else seemed to think Santa was the bee's knees though. Here's a slide show of everyone's picture with Santa.
So, I've decided that Santa is a little gullible. All you have to do is sit on the guy's lap for a bit and he gives you stuff. If only my parents were this easy.

I LOVE Ava's little outfit! Her hat and tutu are so darling-also, I loved seeing the slide show of everyone sitting on Santa's lap. Boo, you and your cute sisters are so fun and festive in your matching hot pink Santa suits-what little vixens you all are! Also, Zachary is so cute, and I think he looks like Preston and Liz's kids, but especially like Luke! Anyway, it's so fun to see your adventures!

Ditto to everything Chels wrote...I just got on to comment and she took the words right out of my mouth/hands right down to Zach looking just like Preston and Liz's kids. Hello! Chels and I are kindred spirits:)
