Georgia Meets Santa

Georgia met Santa today! It's quite an event, meeting the Christmas elf. We all line up, with the kiddos dressed in their Christmas clothes, hair brushed and faces scrubbed. As you get closer you can see Santa and watch the kids get their picture taken. About every other kid screams and cries, refusing to sit with Santa, and all the parents in line get more and more anxious that their kid will be a screamer. The kids pick up an this anxiousness, and start getting jumpy and fussy. By the time you get up to the big guy, you all just want to get it over!

Thankfully, our visit was pleasant! Georgia was more excited about seeing all the other"big kids" in line and "talking" to them, than seeing Santa. But she sat on his lap- no smiles, but no tears either! She just seemed intrigued, like she wasn't sure what she was supposed to do now. We got our pictures, got some lunch and made it back home for a nap! A successful Santa introduction!
Thanks to Larry's cousins Jaclyn and Joseph for coming with us, and especially to Jaclyn for telling us about this great Santa!

Hey Kathryn,
Was this the singing Santa at Brookwood? I have heard he is really good with the kids also. Great pictures.
