I wasn’t sure if we were going to get photos with Santa this year. I hate paying to get photos taken and they always seem so staged and a little risky. Who knows how the kids will react? But then Kei mentioned the Santa at his work and we just had to drop by and meet him. Thomas is so excited about Santa this year and there were no lines to wait in, so it was the perfect opportunity to get some photos.
When he actually saw the man in red in real life though, Thomas became a little shy. Santa gave him a special little gift – a silver bell from the movie Polar Express which we had watched just a few days before so it was pretty perfect.
Of course Samuel had the chance to meet him too.
And here’s the Christmas card picture – if I was organized enough to actually send Christmas cards that is.
