Santa Baby, Hurry Down the Chimney Tonight

So we went to see Santa Claus tonight. Our friend Jake manages a mortgage business in town and invites friends/customers to come and see Santa (i.e., Jake). So we get there and immediately we have a Cry Baby. Guess who. . .


Nope, it wasn't Emmy. She was clueless and chilled - and cute, of course.


Surprisingly, not at all! He loved Santa and went right up to him and even kissed and hugged him! Too funny. He did tell Santa that he wants oatmeal for Christmas (which my friend Brooke informed me her boy wants, too!). But I think Jonas' favorite part of seeing Santa was all the treats they had! My gosh, if we left our eyes off that boy for 2 seconds he would grab about 4 cookies - and appearantly stuff them in his mouth all at once! He was in Heaven.


Yes, Miles was our Cry Baby. He peeked in the window when we were unloading everbody and then ran away. He DID NOT want to see Santa. When he finally came in he would not look at Santa. Notice his hat pulled over his eyes! He wouldn't take a cookie from Santa or anybody else for the first 15 minutes. Finally I was able to get him to eat a cookie - he ate it by the window and would only face the window and watch the cars - with his back towards Santa. "I don't like Santa." Finally Santa's Helper/coworker was able to get Miles close to Santa - and then on Santa's lap. Then Miles decided that Santa was fun - and he did tell him that he wants a "track excavator."

We'll see if Santa pulls through for them.

Funny. I don't know what it is about Santa that brings out such fear in some kids. Last year I found a website that was all funny pictures of kids being scared of Santa. Can't remember the address, though. Luckily we haven't had any meltdowns with Santa but my kids are never super excited to see him either. We'll see what happens this year.
