12.7.14 – Santa Visit

8 Dec

We made our annual trip to visit Santa at the mall yesterday. Laney doesn’t really have any concept of who Santa is. She has asked, “Who’s that!?” when we are reading some of her Christmas books. And now she thinks any older gentleman with a white beard is Santa. When I asked her if she wanted to see Santa at the mall yesterday after her nap, she promptly replied, “No!” But with a little bribery we got her in the car and headed off. She was pretty excited when we got there – mostly by the Allstate dog mascot in the window of the Allstate store.

She seemed willing at first when we walked up to the Santa area…

But as soon as we set her on Santa’s lap, she freaked!


i really didn’t expect anything less. When she saw the picture, she said, “Laney crying.” She did want to go back and say “bye” to Santa before we left – from a safe distance of course.

And a trip down memory lane (they just keep getting better):

In other news, we also had our first Christmas party with our friends this past weekend. We all had a great time, and Kyle won the annual find the pickle competition! Six baby girls under the age of 4 – so many fun memories ahead!
