Here it is, folks!
The yearly Santa Claus visit, captured on cheap photo paper, yet costing a rediculous amount of money.
I thought this would definitely be the year for the 'kids screaming on Santa's lap' photo, (and I'm not going to lie, I kinda really want one of those pictures just to look back and laugh at years down the road), but I was totally wrong. I thought exposure was the key in the boys not feeling intimidated by the Big Guy in Red, and as it turns out, they were all smiles for every Santa we saw this season.
Every. Single. One.
All 6 of them.
This photo was Santa visit number 5, but Santa #1 and #5 out of 6 (meaning we saw him on 2 different occasions.) He was my favorite (pretty, authentic and so good with the boys), but the first time we visited him, I tried to cheap-out and use my cell to take a picture, which wasn't allowed on "the set", hence the blurry images were captured from far away.
In defence of my cheapness, we had just finished up spending lots of "green" at Build-A-Bear, where the boys each chose a pink teddy bear.
Not a typo...pink bears.
And there's more. Wesley named his bear BOB.
What's even funnier?
I'll tell you...
Andrew named his pink bear, (oh, so appropriately) GREEN.
