Tonight we made a trip to the mall to see Santa. Lennon and I chat about him pretty regularly these days, so I honestly thought she would be totally fine with pictures this year.
Walking by him, she thought he was great. She would wave and say hello. She even blew him a kiss. We went to wait in line. Still good. Finally we were next. She was holding my hand, looked over at him, looked back at me and said, "All done, mommy." I explained we were going to take a picture with him and she said ok. On our way over, she stopped and started pulling back. We made it to Santa and I was carrying her at this point. I tried to put her down and she held on so tight I didn't even need to hold her. Pretty funny. After asking if she would like to sit on his lap, next to him, stand in front of him, etc...she agreed to sit on my lap. After this shot, I asked her if she wanted to try one sitting with him and she told me, "No thank you mommy. All done please." Can't argue with that.
The entire time, Marin was just sitting on his lap staring at him and his beard. It was all we could do to get her to look at the camera.
My apologies to the few that will get one of these pictures. Didn't mean to mess up the cuteness with my mug.
