We will be meeting Santa again this year, but in St. Louis this time two weeks from yesterday. Meeting Santa last year was not a great experience for Matthew. We got cute photos of him being scared, which wasn’t exactly what we were going for. HA! When Matthew was Bryson’s age, we got cute photos, but he was rather stoic in them. But man alive, they were cute!
Today, while walking the mall with my mom friends, I thought, “why not try a Santa picture with Bryson?” He was dressed for the occasion (a darling sweater outfit because jeans don’t fit his
little legs) and was in a good mood. So I got in line (there was no line) at 9:56, waiting for them to let us in. He did great. He was so cute and had a great time – and yes – his outfit was pretty perfect!
Of course I bought all the digitals (say it with me, “of course you did!”) and a 5X7 that I’ve already shown Matthew, asking him if he wants to meet Santa too. He says no. 😉 We’ll see in a couple of weeks. I’ll keep using that photo as bait, and the Santa-dressed sock monkey Bryson picked out for him while we paid for the photos.
Our photos next week better work out – we all (and I mean, we ALL, including B) have matching sweater outfits for Breakfast with Santa! I have officially turned into my mother (sigh).
