The excitement is building. R&R was contentedly eating Cheerios in her stroller while Miss J walked around looking at the super-sized Christmas decorations, calling out and waving to Santa while we waited.
It's our turn. R&R is skeptical but sits in Santa's lap without any fuss. Miss J decides that in fact she'd rather just stay in Daddy's arms. Eventually she agreed to sit on a stool NEXT to Santa but certainly not in his lap.
Now if only I could scan the pic so you could share in the girls excitement. Picture if you will two cute girls in coordinating white/red/denim outfits wearing the saddest faces you can get (without tears). Big pleading eyes and even bigger frowns. There was no amount of silliness or entertaining that was going to turn those frowns upside down.
Ah yes, and we do it for the kids!
